Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green mocks Kendrick Perkins after Team USA wins gold at the Olympics
Saying that Team USA had a few hiccups on their way to gold would be such an understatement, it would almost seem like a lie. But hey, they won it all right? And Draymond Green was a massive part of it.
Surrounded by players that elite on offense, but sometimes just iffy on defense, the Warriors star was tasked with holding the team down on that end of the floor. And boy did he do it well.
It took him a little time to adjust to the international game, we won’t lie. But as soon as he did, he became quietly dominant for the team.
Speaking of the team, at this point, everyone knows how much doubt they faced in this tournament. At one point, even Kendrick Perkins joined in. And after winning it all in the Olympics, of course, Draymond Green went back to his that little comment.
“Now carry the hell on Kendrick Perkins!”: Draymond Green trolls the ESPN analyst on Twitter for his take on international players
Green has always been the type to take things personally. After all, that is one of the biggest reasons why he is as good a player as he is today. But like everything in this world, there is also a slightly bad side to having this mentality, which has brought the player into trouble more than a few times. Essentially, sometimes, the player can take things a tad bit too personally.
And of course, that applied to Big Perk’s comments about international players as well. And as a reaction, here is what he tweeted out.

To be fair to Draymond, he did acknowledge the sensational abilities of Luka Doncic. However, apart from that, there really was no reason to respond to this if we’re honest.
The comment made by Perkins isn’t exactly a blasphemous one. Sure, the rest of the world hasn’t taken over just yet, but they are inching awfully close to the USA.
At this rate, we’d watch our backs if we were the team.
