LeBron James backed Draymond Green for his statements on the Andre Drummond trade, and Skip Bayless has a fresh go at him.
Draymond has stirred up some hornets’ nests with his rant about Drummond. The Warriors missed him in their win against the Heat last night, but the postgame presser missed him more.
There are few people in the NBA as vocal about players’ rights as Draymond Green is. However, he’s also got a reputation as a douchey fellow. His dig at Rodney McGruder goes directly against his stance on Drummond if you think about it.
Skip Bayless goes off on LeBron James for backing Draymond Green
Draymond and LeBron James have always had each other’s back off the court, and that was the first thing Skip attacked:
“Draymond and LeBron are business partners. Did that play a part in James agreeing with Green?”
It’s a shame that LeBron James is endorsing this kind of behavior. I can’t get worked up or feel pity about guys who are very well paid for what they do. The last two NBA championships have been won because a player quit his way out of town. More @Undisputed, now on FS1 https://t.co/2bMGyRQ0Sf

Skip then unleashed his full-frontal verbal assault on James, and it was quite the rant:
“I want everybody out there to understand that LeBron James, the face of the league, just cosigned Draymond Green saying: ‘It is just fine if a star is under contract for a team that they quit or pout their way out of town.’ And they all do it and they get away with it and nobody says anything about it.”
“Nobody condemned James Harden, everybody just said ‘Well, that’s the way it works in the NBA.’ Because the players run the league, they have their freedom. This is a shame that LeBron James is endorsing this kind of behavior.”
