Here's What Draymond Green Had to Say on Paul Pierce Dissing Kevin Durant

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

In my opinion, one of the huge factors in Kevin Durant choosing the Golden State Warriors was the protection he’d receive from guys like Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala. Durant hasn’t had an enforcer in his corner since the Oklahoma City Thunder jettisoned Kendrick Perkins away.

Green made his presence felt on Thursday night, blasting Paul Pierce and so many others who’ve criticized Durant for joining the Warriors juggernaut, per Anthony Slater.

"I just wonder at what point do they get bored talking about the same thing? You got all these guys talking. Like (Paul) Pierce today, like, dude nobody care what you did or who you did it for. Just give it a break. Everybody got something to say and want to take everything he say and twist it. Like, he play with the Warriors. OKC has their team, we have our team. He left there.

“Nobody complains when somebody leaves Apple and goes to Google. Aren’t they in competition with each other?

“As a basketball player, you are the CEO of a business. You are a business. Kevin Durant is a big business. He is the CEO of that business. So him going to play basketball for a different team, the CEO decided to leave where he was at and go somewhere else.

“Aren’t you competitive in your day job if you work for Apple? Don’t you want to outdo Google? What’s the difference on the basketball court? It’s your day job. You want to do what’s better for you.”

It seems Pierce’s comments were the final straw, but he won’t be the last person to take a shot at Durant, no matter what the Warriors' record is at season’s end.
