There are few if any players in the NBA as outspoken as Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green.

If Draymond had an opinion on something, it won’t be long until he lets us all know about that opinion.

Which is exactly why he makes for the perfect host of The Draymond Green Show, because you know he’s always going to have something interesting to say.

Well, despite Green and Golden State Warriors going out in the second round of the NBA playoffs, Green is still getting behind the microphone to give his thought.

And, boy, does he ever have some thoughts. Particularly, Green has thoughts on Jaylen Brown and Boston Celtics.

Brown and Green have a bit of history, having gotten into it with one another in the 2022 NBA Finals. It’s no secret that the two don’t seem to like each other all that much.

So when Green saw an opportunity to call out Brown, he pounced on it.

The former NBA defensive player of the year called out Brown for not defending teammate Grant Williams after the Celtics’ 111-105 loss to the Miami Heat in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals.

“When I saw JB (Jaylen Brown) after the game, they asked JB about Grant (Williams) and poking the bear and what not, and he said ‘next question.’ To me, I’m like ‘oh, they(‘re) done,” Green said of Brown and the Celtics. “He said ‘next question.’

“But in JB’s situation, you still ride your man, be like ‘hey, he started talking. Jimmy (Butler) played well It is what it is. We gotta do what we gotta do to win.’ You can’t ‘next question’ it, JB. That was the mentality that their team took on in Game 3. Like ‘next question,’ next game, next play, this is it. You could tell that there was more there once that happened.”

Now, Green isn’t in the Celtics locker room.

For all he or we know, Williams may have had no issue with it. But on the other hand, he may also have a point and the Celtics may have to sort out some locker room issues ahead of the 2023-24 season.
