Draymond Green’s no good, very bad summer continued this weekend when he sent out a Snapchat image of his… I believe the medical term is “penis.” Yes. Green sent out a colloquial “dick pic.” Green initially tried to claim he was hacked, but eventually owned up to taking and sending the picture. According to Green, this will make him better. At everything. Via ESPN:
"“I truly believe we all go through points in our life that help propel us to the next level. I’m at the stage right now where all this stuff will help propel me to the next level as a basketball player, but more importantly as a man. I don’t live my life with regrets. I apologize for the situation. It’s clearly not what I was trying to do. At the end of the day you have certain situations in your life that just help push you forward, and you have to use them the right way.”"
A funny way to improve, but athletes take motivation from the strangest places. Helping him get to that next level this month, both on and off the court, will be his Team USA Basketball teammates.
DeMarcus Cousins, DeMar Derozan, Paul George and even Green’s Golden State teammate Klay Thompson can be seen discussing and yelling at Draymond in this video. It’s safe to say this will remain a topic of conversation throughout the Olympics.
