Draymond: “Being Me Has Gotten Me This Far”

Draymond Green somewhat flew under the radar for the Warriors during their 2015 championship run. Not necessarily because of his play, but everything else. He wasn’t much of a factor when it came to extra curricular activities. But that certainly wasn’t the case during their failed quest for a title in 2016. Draymond Green was constantly in the headlines.

That continued even last week when he was arrested for allegedly slapping a heckling fan in Michigan. But despite his recent transgressions, Green plans on staying true to who he is.

“Being me has gotten me this far,” Green said with a smile Monday at Team USA practice.

Green has a pending misdemeanor assault and battery charge stemming from a July 10 altercation with now former Michigan State football player Jermaine Edmondson outside a restaurant in East Lansing, Michigan.

“My attorneys are handling everything,” Green said. “Leave it in their hands, and I got an opportunity to compete for a gold medal. You don’t let any type of distraction get in the way of that. This [is] not about me. It’s not about anyone on this team. It’s about going out and defending our country the right way, so everything else is kind of secondary to that.”
