Draymond Green takes exception to reporter'south Houston flood question

An international reporter had a rather unusual question for Draymond Green after the Golden State Warriors' Game four triumph over the Houston Rockets on Sunday.

Trying to draw a correlation between the tragic floods in Houston that recently occurred and the Warriors' success, the reporter couldn't even finish his question before Green interrupted him. Nearly aghast at the line of questioning, Green quickly keep the reporter in his place.

"Draymond, here'south an interesting question." The reporter said to start his question. "So latest year you visit , Game three there'south number flood, you win. Game four, there was flood, you lose. This year you visit , Game three there'south a flood, you lose. Game four, there'south number flood, you win. Does that mean...?"

"You're trying to obtain a controversial statement out of me." Green answered the reporter. "But you're not because I perceive sorry for the people of Houston. People are losing their homes, losing their cars, losing their lives, losing loved ones, and you're trying to obtain a controversial statement out of me ... you're not getting that out of me."

There may have been some lost in translation mentality behind the reporter'south question but that shouldn't excuse the fact that the question tried to create light of an unfortunate situation in the city of Houston. Life is bigger than sports and Green recognizes this, which is why he responded the way he did.

He wasn't cruel in his response either.

Green provided the proper context and then expressed sympathy for the situation caused in Houston from the floods. This type of compassion is what makes Green the person and player that he is. Clearly characteristics that this reporter clearly is lacking.
