Draymond Green Called Kevin Durant a “Bitch” During On-Court Confrontation

Got Beef?

Kevin Durant and Draymond Green really got into it on Monday night, both during and after their 121-116 OT loss to the Clippers.

In the final play of regulation, Green not only stole a rebound from KD,  but he continued to drive the length of the floor and horrendously turned the ball over. Yeah, he opted not to pass the ball to KD in the backcourt — the guy who scored a game-high 33 points, the same guy who is widely considered the hardest shooter to guard in the NBA.

That event is what appeared to ignite the exchange:

 

 

Shams Charania of The Athletic reports that during the argument, Green challenged Durant about his impending free agency. Yes, during the game:

 

 

As per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Marc J. Spears, the beef continued post-game into the locker room, as teammates (plural) “loudly confronted” Draymond for his poor decision-making down the stretch:

 

 

Wojnarowski and Spears further report that no one had to be separated and “no hint of physicality loomed in the setting” — Because let’s be honest, does anyone really want to take on Dray in the ring?

 

UPDATE // 

 

The Golden State Warriors suspended Draymond Green for tonight’s home game against the Atlanta Hawks after he reportedly called fellow All-Star teammate Kevin Durant a “bitch” during a heated verbal exchange Monday night in Los Angeles.

Per Yahoo Sports:

 

Draymond Green’s one-game suspension for “conduct detrimental to the team” came after he repeatedly called Kevin Durant a “bitch” in a verbal confrontation between the two stars during the Golden State Warriors’ loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Durant called out Green in the huddle for not passing him the ball at the end of regulation in Monday’s game, which prompted Green to fire back at Durant, sources said. The organization is of the belief that Green cut too deep in his disagreement with Durant, sources said.

Klay Thompson, who is typically reserved, spoke up in the locker room to the surprise of his teammates about the altercation and stressed the importance of sticking together, sources said.
