Stephen A Smith slams the Golden State Warriors for suspending Draymond Green after his ‘Chips’ interview with Kevin Durant
It’s a bit surprising that the incredible ‘Chips’ interview between Draymond Green and Kevin Durant hasn’t been talked about more. After all, it was perhaps the most explosive NBA event to happen this offseason.
For those that don’t know what’s going on here, Bleacher Report recently gave the Warriors star his own show, where he will presumably interview athletes of his choice. And, to kick-off his show, he chose the Slim Reaper.
The pair spoke on a plethora of personal things. But their discussion about their infamous fight while on Golden State, by far grabbed the most attention.
During this part of the interview, the pair acknowledged that there were issues between them, and Dray even acknowledged he was wrong. However, both of them also largely blamed the higher-ups within the Warriors organization, for trying to cover up there was any issue at all, even within the locker room.
While the discussion seemed therapeutic for both players, it seems the franchise didn’t like that it was involved, and has reportedly suspended Draymond Green. And Stephen A Smith has absolutely slammed the organization for it.
Let’s get into it.
Stephen A Smith announces his disappointment at the Golden State Warriors for suspending Draymond Green
To say that Draymond Green can be controversial sometimes is like saying that black holes aren’t really that dangerous. Obviously, it is such an understatement, it borders on completely untrue.
Still, isn’t that the fun part about the Warriors star? At the end of the day, Warriors fans love Dray because he isn’t afraid to say what’s on his mind. And while that has brought him into trouble at times, his unyielding honesty will always be appreciated, because of how rare it is, in the NBA.
But it seems that the Warriors don’t appreciate that part of him very much. After they suspended him, many in the NBA community cried out in frustration. And Stephen A Smith was no different. Take a look at the clip in the tweet below.

Frankly, while we do agree with Smith here, we also get why the Warriors did it.
There is such a thing as too honest. And when Draymond laughed in the face of the Warriors’ executives, at the end of the day, that is a sign of disrespect.
On the bright side though, it appears the man has learned from the whole fiasco. And with his chemistry with Klay and Steph stronger than ever, we can’t wait to see them all on the court together next season.
