TORONTO – Draymond Green didn’t want to talk about Drake last night. The Warriors had just lost Game 1 of the NBA Finals. The question asked of Green referred to a “scuffle,” a poor characterization of the post-game jawing.
But a day later, the ever-talkative Green was happy to discuss the Raptors’ most famous fan, including how the NBA regulates him.
“So many people are complaining about it, like, ‘You don’t let any other fan do that,’” Green said. “Yeah, any other fan is just not Drake. So they probably shouldn’t be able to do that. That’s just kind of how the cookie crumbles. He’s worked his ass off to be who he is. I think we all know, when you do that, you get more leash than others. So, I think there’s so much talk and the NBA needs to – no, they don’t. He worked to be who he is. You should get more leash.
“But I don’t mind it. It’s fun for me.”
If the Warriors wanted nothing to do with Drake, they could have avoided him. Instead, Green and Stephen Curry invited interactions with the rapper last night. Now, there’s no turning back. Drake is empowered to continue his histrionics.
Really, with everyone on board, that makes this series even more fun – not just for Green, but for all of us.
