Warriors’ outspoken star Draymond Green is facing some heavy criticism for his performance in the NBA Finals to date with former NBA superstar Isaiah Thomas taking him to task for his off-court podcasting, saying it has taken away from his focus on the series. Doug stands up for Green and calls out all former athletes turned broadcasters who think talking sports into a hot mic is somehow a distraction. That is the height of hypocrisy.

Doug Gottlieb: “Draymond Green talking through what’s going on for 20-30 minutes, or even an hour, that doesn’t take away your mental preparation! We’re embarrassing ourselves as former athletes turned broadcasters because we know that’s not true!”
