Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green does not believe he must take a new course in light of recent incidents.

“Being me has gotten me this far,” Green said with a smile Monday at Team USA practice.

Green has a pending misdemeanor assault and battery case stemming from a July 10 altercation with now former Michigan State football player Jermaine Edmondson outside a restaurant in East Lansing, Michigan.

“My attorneys are handling everything,” Green said. “Leave it in their hands and I got an opportunity to compete for a gold medal. You don’t let any type of distraction get in the way of that. This [is] not about me. It’s not about anyone on this team. It’s about going out and defending our country the right way, so everything else is kind of secondary to that.”

We continue the Draymond Green legal saga as “The Coach’s Son That Nobody Likes” says he won’t change who he is even after allegedly punching a college kid in the face. I gotta be honest I feel like some people completely change who they are for way less. Like when a hot chick in college says she only likes waffle fries and you don’t eat another regular fry the rest of your life. Or when your little league baseball coach tells you to drill a guy inside and soon enough you’re the grade school bully. Or when an older guy at a fraternity party tells you your cargo pants suck so you change your entire wardrobe (wait, that’s basically every college freshman).

I guess Draymond just has such high character that he would never look inside himself and see if he can make improvements as a person. He’s not gonna let one little incident of talking down to a college kid and possibly smacking him in the face change how he approaches life. Draymond’s not a malleable guy. He is who he is. Introspection is for nerds, that’s why Draymond never stops talking on the court. If he keeps chirping you for missing layups and making less money than he does, he’ll never have a moment with his own thoughts to deal with his personal problems. That sort of mentality shows how great of a competitor Draymond is. He has no time for therapy when he’s trying to play questionably legal D.

But will the legal trouble impede Draymond from going out to Brazil to defend our country’s Olympic Basketball title? I don’t know, did a little misdemeanor drunk driving impede your grandpa’s ability to fight in World War 2? Did “court ordered house arrest” hinder that same grandpa’s ability to go out and get laid? Did “a lack of documentation” disallow thousands of immigrants to cross the border?

Yeah, I don’t think Draymond’s too worried about it.
