LOS ANGELES – Warriors forward Draymond Green reiterated Monday that he has the “utmost respect” for Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers despite their recent war of words.
So Green said he removed the “Cool Story, Glenn” clothing for sale from his official shop at Athlete Originals, which had tweeted Saturday that the gear referencing Rivers’ given first game was “sold out.”
“I took the shirts down because I know at the end of the day it’s all fun and games,” Green said. “With doing the T-shirt line, if something catches, you use it. But I just knew people would try to make it out to be more than it really is, so I took it down. People try to make it as if I don’t respect Doc. But like I said, I have the utmost respect for Doc. So people try to take it and twist it, but if he says something else, I’m going to have fun with it again.”
Green then turned his attention to Rivers’ son, Jeremiah, when asked about the former Indiana Hoosiers player tweeting, “Draymond Green Always Been A Lame…” in an apparent response to the “Cool Story, Glenn” shirts.
“Yeah his son didn’t play at Indiana though, so he can’t talk. He never beat me,” Green said, referring to Michigan State’s two wins over Indiana when the two players faced off in college. “We’re not going to even say his name. Give him no publicity. Tell him to chase it some other way. He won’t get his publicity off me.”
