Draymond Green Is Being Laughably Sensitive After Learning He’s Not As Tall As He Thought He Was

A couple of weeks ago, the NBA struck fear into the heart of Kevin Durant (as well as some other players) when it announced it would be changing the way it measures the official height of the league’s athletes.

For years, the NBA has evaluated how tall people are based on their height when they have shoes on but it apparently took them longer than it probably should have to realize that’s not the most accurate way to do so.

Last week, we learned the first major player to fall victim to the new regulations was Zion Williamson, who was listed as 6’7″ during his time at Duke but saw his height fall to a relatively paltry 6’6″ when he was measured by the powers that be.

However, he’s far from the only person to suffer the same fate.

As you can see, Draymond Green got dinged even harder when he was downgraded a full two inches. However, he’s not going down without a fight.

On Wednesday, the Warrior hopped on Instagram Live to prove to the world once and for all he is decidedly notΒ 6’5″ despite what you may have heard by conducting his own evaluation.

Now, I understand why a lot of short guys want to make sure every single inch is accounted for, but once you reach the six-foot mark, most people really stop giving a shit. However, I guess the same can’t be said for Green.

My thoughts and prayers go out to him during this difficult time.

Connor Toole is a Senior Editor at BroBible based in Brooklyn, NY who embodies more of the stereotypes associated with the borough than he's comfortable with. Frequently described as "freakishly tall," he once used his 6'10" frame to sneak in the NBA Draft before walking around the streets of NYC masquerading as the newest member of the Utah Jazz. Unfortunately, that wasn't enough to land him a contract, so he was forced to settle for writing on the internet for a living instead. If you're mad about something he wrote, be sure that any angry tweets you send note the similarity between his last name and a popular insult, as no one has ever done that before.
