Draymond Green is considered the best trash talker in the NBA for a reason.
Apparently Dillion Brooks didn’t consult with Paul Pierce, before he decided to insult Green in a recent ESPN profile. Here’s what the controversial guard said:
“I don’t like Draymond at all,” Brooks told ESPN’s Tim Keown. “I just don’t like Golden State. I don’t like anything to do with them. Draymond talks a lot. Gets away with a lot, too. His game is cool — with Golden State — but if you put him anywhere else, you’re not going to know who Draymond is. He plays with heart, plays hard, knows the ins and outs of their defense. I guess that’s why they like him over there.”
Draymond responded with a series of haymakers on Wednesday, going line-by-line through Brooks’ quote on his podcast in what can only be described as an evisceration. Here are the comments in full:
This idiot said, ‘I don’t know what Draymond does out there.’ He said ‘I don’t like Draymond at all.’
You don’t know me.
‘I just don’t like Golden State.’
I quite frankly wouldn’t like a team that beats me all the time either.
‘I don’t like anything to do with them.’
Quite frankly you were a little kid in high school watching us win championships. Should be happy that you even witnessed that. Or maybe college. You get the point. You’re a fan.
‘Draymond talks a lot.’
You talk a lot now, so if you had four rings, I’m sure you’d talk a lot more. Four All-Stars? You’d probably talk a bit more. Defensive Player of the Year? You’d for damn sure would talk more. Two Olympic gold medals? You’d definitely be talkin’, because that would mean you’d be team USA, and we all know how that goes.
‘Gets away with a lot too.’
What exactly do I get away with? I have 15 techs, one less than your dumbass. Okay, great.
‘His game is cool.’
If you ever wondered why the Memphis Grizzlies are not ready to compete for a championship, look no further than this idiot right here. They’re actually depending on this guy to help them win a championship. And he says ‘his game is cool.’ Quite frankly that just shows how little you know about basketball. And yet you running around talking about a dynasty. The dynasty starts after you, not with you.
‘He plays with heart, knows the ins and outs of the defense.’
If you wanna be quite frank I made the ins and outs of our defense.
‘I guess that’s why they like him over there.’
I’m trying to figure out why they like you in Memphis. Or do they like you in Memphis? That’s a better question. I’m not sure your teammates like you. But I can tell you why they like me over there. When you contribute in the way that I have contributed to four championships, they tend to like you. So, next time you speak up on me, you should do some fact checkin’.
Next time you speak up on me, you should do some soul searching. Next time you speak up on me, I hope you in a better situation than you’re in now, where the guys you play with actually enjoy playing with you because they actually think you’re contributing to winning. Cause it ain’t happening right now, champ. Ah! You ain’t a champ. You a clown. It ain’t happening for you.
The Warriors face the Grizzlies in Memphis on Thursday.
