Dry slams ‘clown’ Brooks for anti-Warriors comments originally appeared nbc sports birea
Draymond Green finally addressed Dillon Brooks’ Recent Comments about Warriors In Wednesday’s episode “Drummond Green Show” podcast.
And it lived up to the hype.
Green, whose Warriors will face Brooks and the Memphis Grizzlies at FedExForum on Thursday night, fired a fiery five-minute response.
“(Brooks) said, ‘I don’t like Drummond at all.’ You don’t know me. He’s number one,” Green said.
“He said, ‘I don’t like Golden State.’ I, quite frankly, don’t want a team that beats me all the time. That’s number two. ‘I don’t want anything to do with them.’ Quite frankly, you were the little kid in high school watching us win the championship. You should be glad you even saw it… You’re a fan. It’s insane.”
But the four-time NBA champion Green didn’t stop there.
“If you’ve ever wondered why the Memphis Grizzlies aren’t ready to compete for a championship, look no further than this idiot,” Green said. “They’re really depending on this guy to help them win championships, and he says his game is good. Quite frankly, it shows how little you know about basketball. That’s where Where it gets really interesting.
“Your level of understanding of the game of basketball is at the fan level. And you’re talking about a dynasty? The dynasty starts after you, not with you. It’s just a fact. I know players like dynasties . They’re not the Joker. It doesn’t work when building a dynasty.
“Take it from me – I really do know! Jokers don’t build a dynasty.”
The Warriors have a short but bitter history with Brooks. The 27-year-old first made waves last summer in the Western Conference semifinals when he injured Gary Payton II on a flagrant foul in Game 2.
The jab has continued on and off the court ever since. Warriors veteran Klay Thompson even entered the ring By knocking Brooks down after making a 3-pointer in their Christmas Day matchup.

“I’m trying to figure out why they like you in Memphis,” Green continued. “Or do they like you in Memphis? I’m not sure your teammates like you. Doesn’t lead to wins. I can tell you why they like me (at Golden State). When You contribute the way I have contributed to winning four championships, they like you.
“Next time you speak about me, you should do some soul searching. Next time you speak about me, I hope you are in a better position than you are now, where the people you play with , they really enjoy playing with you because they really think you’re contributing to winning.”
The Warriors have two matchups against the Bruins and the Grizzlies left on their schedule — Thursday and March 18.
