Draymond Green talking to talk? You don’t say. The Warriors forward teamed up with none other than Trae Young to talk down on, you guessed it, New York Knicks fans.
Green is one of the more polarizing players in the NBA, from what he does on the court (practice included) to what he says off the court. He seems to enjoy the attention. Look no further than how he reacted after being ejected for stepping on Domantas Sabonis’ chest in Game 2 of the first-round series between Golden State and Sacramento.
It isn’t surprising that Green ripped New York fans at the Uninterrupted Film Festival while speaking with Young. The Hawks guard has been referred to as a Knicks villain since Atlanta bounced New York out of the first round of the playoffs in 2021. Green decided to “scold” the Knicks fan base for how they’ve treated Young.
"“New York Knicks fans are f–king delusional and miserable,” Green said. “They’re a hard fan base."
Green added that he “loves New York” and doesn’t want to be “banned from the city.”
As if it isn’t hilarious enough that Green thinks adding that last part will free him from the wrath of Knicks fans, he said that he doesn’t like being labeled as a villain.
"“Trae, you go into the Garden, hitting the shots, bowing, you are very much a showman, yet that’s been flipped into being a villain. I’ll be the first to say it: being a villain [stinks], it’s no fun.”"
Draymond Green falls into Twitter bait trap days after ripping Knicks fans
There’s no denying that Knicks fans are a passionate fan base, and there are fans who will never be satisfied with what the team accomplishes. The same can be said for fans of every other NBA team, but New York stands out more than others for obvious reasons.
What’s funny about Draymond Green calling Knicks fans “delusional” and “miserable” is that the forward fell victim to ‘NBACentel’ on Twitter. Green tried to start beef with Kevin Garnett, one of the best trash-talkers to play in the league, over a fake quote.
Who’s the delusional one now? In all honesty, if Green truly doesn’t like being referred to as a villain, maybe his actions should reflect that. It doesn’t take much to get him riled up.
Knicks fans can’t wait to see you in the Garden again, Draymond!
