Draymond Green Apologized to Warriors Teammates for Halftime Tirade

by March 01, 2016

Prior to Stephen Curry’s unbelievable game-winner Saturday night against the OKC Thunder, Draymond Green briefly lost his mind during a profanity-laced halftime outburst.

Green was reportedly upset with Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr’s criticism.

Dray issued a public apology on Monday.

Per the Mercury News:

“I know everybody has questions about it,” Green said. “But I admit my mistakes, and I made a mistake. I made a mistake with my teammates and coaching staff. I apologize to my teammates and my coaching staff and this organization. That wasn’t the right way to handle what needed to be handled.”


“As a leader of this team, I can’t do that because it sets a bad precedent for how everything is run around here, how everything should be run and how everything has been run, how everything will be run going forward,” he said. “It won’t happen again. It’s something where my emotions kind of got ahead of me, and I let my emotions get the best of me. […] However, I will never quit on my teammates as some have reported. I will never quit on my coaching staff, I will never quit on this organization. This organization has given me everything I could ask for, so I support and represent this organization to the best of my ability, and that’s not who I am, that’s not who I have been and that’s not who I will become. But I’m human, I’m not perfect, nobody on this earth is perfect. If we were, there’s no reason for us being here.”


Stephen Curry said Green apologized to the team after the game and there were no lingering after-effects. […] “He’s invested in what we’re doing and obviously he’s an emotional guy, a fiery guy, and that’s what we love about him,” Curry said. “It spilled over into the locker room, but that’s not the first time that’s happened. It probably shouldn’t have happened, but we came out united. That’ll never be in question.”
