Draymond Green’s performance throughout the NBA Finals has been widely criticized. Even his mother has no clue what happened to him.
The Golden State Warriors made it to the NBA Finals in 16 games through the tough Western Conference. Draymond Green played a role in them making it to the big game for the sixth time in the past eight years. But once NBA Finals began, Green’s performance has taken a hit, especially in Game 3.
In Game 4, Green was actually benched in the fourth quarter by head coach Steve Kerr. That is when the criticism started up once again. Green’s mother, Mary Babers-Green, responded to the questions surrounding her son on Twitter, saying she doesn’t know why he is performing the way he is.
Draymond Green’s mom has hilarious tweet about rough Game 4 performance
Green’s mom wanted to let Twitter know that she does not want to receive the same question about what is going on with the Warriors star, because she has no answers. The only thing she could come up with was joking that her son was replaced by a clone.
Kerr opted to bench Green in the fourth, and the Warriors head coach said during the postgame press conference that the forward was not happy about it.
Luckily for Green, the Warriors were able to bounce back to take Game 4 by the score of 107-97. That is due in part to the Celtics scoring just six points in the remaining seven-plus minutes in regulation, and Steph Curry having the game of a lifetime by dropping 43 points.
In 33 minutes, Green scored just two points (1-for-7 on field goal attempts), but he did record nine rebounds, eight assists and four steals.
The Warriors now return home for Game 5, which takes place on Monday, June 13 at 9:00 p.m. ET. Maybe that is when Golden State gets to see Green break out of his slump.
