Draymond Green says Kevin Durant is an 'under the radar' trash-talker
Draymond Green thought he was a good trash-talker until he heard Kevin Durant on the court.
One of the more loquacious players in the NBA, Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green seems to always be talking during games. With his constant yapping, Green has earned the honor as one of the league's best trash-talkers, but he is the first to admit that there are better individuals at that particular game in the NBA.
From The Oklahoman's Anthony Slater, who transcribed Green's response:
“You know who I always thought (was a great trash-talker), but has been under the radar, I think Kevin Durant,” Green said. “Lotta people don’t know that. But if you play against him you know.”
“KD makes you feel bad about yourself, that you ever talked junk,” Green said. “It’s the funniest thing in the world.”
“Me and KD have had our battles over the course of my three years in the league,” Green said. “But when he end up with 53 (points), it ain’t much you could say back at that point.”
While Durant has had moments of public trash talking, it sounds like he let's his play do most of his talking. This seems appropriate considering how Durant usually carries himself during games, mainly showing emotion during big plays. Green didn't elaborate on what the Thunder forward actually says during games, but it sounds like the Warriors forward can definitely appreciate Durant's trash talk. Coming from someone as talkative as Green, that is quite the compliment.
