Warriors Star to Rival Fans: ‘Boo. Eventually You’ll Shut Up. And I’ll laugh.’


Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green is embracing the team’s new role as NBA villains following the free-agent signing of Kevin Durant.

In the videos below, via San Jose Mercury News reporter Anthony Slater, Green said that he had no issue with being booed in arenas throughout the league this season — as will likely be the case.

If they want to make us the villain, that’s fine. They’re gonna boo us anyway everywhere we go, so that’s fine. The most fun I have in this game is going on another team’s floor and quieting their crowd anyway. So boo. Then eventually you’ll shut up. And I’ll laugh. We’ll laugh. And we’ll keep it moving.

Green added that he was perplexed by the fact that some American fans booed him even as he represented the Stars and Stripes in exhibition games leading up to the Olympics.

“Jesus Christ,” he said, laughing. “I just don’t understand some people.” He added:

Even if I hate you and whatever team you play for, if you’re gonna wear a Team USA jersey and represent my country, for one day I can give it up and say, ‘OK, I’m with you for this day.’ They booed us still. If they’re gonna boo us with a USA jersey on, I can only imagine how it’s gonna be with a Warriors jersey. More power to those people. They’re angry about something in life. I’m not sure what.
