The Golden State Warriors are back in the NBA Finals.
You know what that means: people are complaining about the way Draymond Green plays.
Green is a thorn in the side of everyone he plays against – and their fanbases.
Not only does he make an impact on the floor, especially when it comes to assists, he is also very confrontational and not afraid of getting in someone’s face again and again and again.
“NBA is too soft”
Draymond shows up

As one account on Twitter highlights, so many people complain about the softness of the modern NBA until Green starts playing as he does.
It’s a good point because as bad as Green can get, there are other players in the league that are far worse.
It’s very likely that so many people who are angry at Green feel that way because he has an attitude – and he keeps on winning.
Money Where His Mouth Is
Yes, Green talks a big game but he also usually plays a big game too.
People give him a hard time but you can’t deny the fact that he has three championship rings and is once again in the NBA Finals.
If he wins yet another Finals this year, the talk about his attitude and toughness won’t matter at all.
Green knows he’s annoying to his opponents – that’s all part of the plan.
He’s an expert at getting inside the minds of those he plays against and it has an impact, he can really throw them off their games.
Make no mistake: Green is well aware of what he’s doing – and he’s finding results.
Many people rag on Green for his attitude but those same people begrudgingly admit that they’d gladly have him on their favorite team.
