Draymond Green pulled off his best ‘Uncle Dray’ ahead of Lakers vs Warriors, silencing a heckler who swore at him in front of his own son.
LeBron James came in clutch for the Lakers, swishing a game-winner from downtown with less than 1 minute left. It was a hard-fought game that swung both ways before this decisive sequence in the final minute.
2-time MVP Steph Curry was in his element last night. He overcame a superb defensive effort by the Lakers to post 37 points on 12-of-23 shooting. Curry could’ve shot and scored even more if it wasn’t for the Lakers religiously trapping him to make him give the ball up.
The Staples Center welcomed over 6000 fans to the arena for this top drawer play in game. They were treated to a postseason classic by all-time great performers on both teams. But perhaps they wouldn’t be all so accepting of one particular fan’s actions in the arena.
“Why would you say that in front of your son?”: Draymond Green eviscerates heckler
Uncle Dray was in his element last night as the Warriors lost a humdinger to the Lakers. The 31-year-old helped to hold Anthony Davis to one of his most inefficient performances in a consequential game.
Green’s statline of 9 rebounds, 8 assists, 3 steals, and 3 blocks tends to understate his impact on the game. It also doesn’t look at the incredible impact he had before the game.
A fan sitting with his son and watching the Warriors’ warmup found it prudent to s*** talk Draymond Green. But his choice of words for the situation wasn’t that great, as he yelled ‘F*** you, Draymond’.
Draymond Green happened to notice that the fan in question was sitting with his kid. Instead of letting this insult slide (he must’ve heard this a thousand times anyway), Draymond talked back:
“You sitting with your son, why you teach him that? Why would you do that?”
Just now warming up:

Fans in sporting arenas tend to often do things that they’d never willingly do in other settings. Swearing at professional athletes likely bigger than you in front of your kids is not a good look.
