[Watch] Draymond Green Shut Reporter Down

Is this reporter reaching a little too much?

Published April 25, 2016

Draymond Green isn't here for far-fetched media reaches.

After his Golden State Warriors scored a Game 4 victory over the Houston Rockets on Sunday, the All-Star forward shut down a reporter who tried to insinuate that the defending champions might have been aided by the recent flooding that has affected H-Town.

Draymond wasn't having it at all.

"Brother, you've asked me about the flood in practice the other day and I said, 'I pray for the city of Houston because you don't want to see anyone go through that,'" Green told the reporter. "I feel like you keep trying to get at us hitting threes or something. You're trying to get a controversial statement out of me, but you're not because I feel sorry for the people of Houston."

And that was just the beginning.

See how Green completely took apart the reporter's comparison.

We feel Draymond on this 100 percent. Comparing the recent flooding in Houston to basketball, period, is just a stretch and one done in poor taste.

By CNN's account last week, the flooding had claimed the lives of five people with an astounding 1,200 more needing to be rescued.

So, clap for Draymond Green shutting down this reporter's attempt to compare the flooding to the Warriors' style of play.

No place for it at all.

Green and the Warriors played the last two games of their series with the Rockets in Houston, splitting the games. 

Golden State, now up 3-1, will look to clinch the series Wednesday night in Oakland, but may have to do it without MVP Stephen Curry, who sprained his right knee Sunday and is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday.
