Draymond Green Has Turned Into The Coach’s Son That Nobody Likes

ESPN

“I was talking to one of my teammates when Draymond bumped into me and I said, ‘Hey bro can you at least say excuse me?'” Edmondson, 22, said in a statement to the East Lansing Police Department about the incident on Friday night. “… I asked who he was to think that it’s okay to bump into somebody without saying excuse me. he then said, ‘I pay for n—– like you scholarships.’ Then I started to say you have me messed up before I was choked out by two guys who were with him…

“As he responded to me, he began to poke me on my shoulder and I tell him that he doesn’t need to put his hands on me, we can just talk,” Edmondson said in his statement to police. “As I started to talk again, boom, I’m punched in the jaw, in front of all my friends and peers.”

You remember that kid from youth basketball who nobody actually liked? He was an awful player but got a lot of playing time because he was the coach’s son. He always invited the best players to his sweet pool after the game, so they just pretended they liked him and that he was a good player. That’s who Draymond Green has become. Listen, buddy, we get it. You’re rich and famous but that doesn’t mean you can go around clocking guys in the jaw. You gotta be at least a 2x All-Star to get away with something like that.

The problem in these situations is there’s nothing the little guy can do. I once went up to one of these “coach’s son” types and asked him to please stop shooting corner three air balls late in tie games. I didn’t see one minute of court time the rest of the season. So this Michigan State cornerback has been put in quite the pickle. Either you let Draymond push you around, or report it and get labeled a “snitch.” Well he chose the latter option and as we saw with Randy in The Wire, that usually doesn’t end well.

P.S- Draymond’s mugshot is oddly self aware.
