Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green has fired a great warning shot at ESPN analyst Kendrick Perkins after helping Golden State Warriors to a 110-96 win against the Grizzlies on Friday.
Former Celtics forward, Kendrick Perkins who is never afraid to give tactless and controversial takes during any of ESPN shows he features in, had a go at Draymond Green.
Perkins criticized Green for his ejection in game one against the Grizzlies, he was also on record calling out the Warriors star for not shooting in games.
And after helping Warriors to another Western Conference final after a 4-2 series win over Grizzlies, Green who had 14 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists on Friday felt it was time to reply to the ‘big mouth’ Perkins.
“I saw somebody say I’m scared to shoot the basketball. Scared and me in the same sentence… a big ogre on TV talking about what Draymond say ain’t the gospel. It is the gospel,” he said.

“What I say is the gospel. When you say that multiple times on several different segments, you must think what I say the gospel. So, you know, you gotta come out and shut some guys up sometimes.”
And just in case it wasn’t clear who he was talking about, Green called out Perkins by name.
“These are people who get employed on TV to talk about our game… You make that pass, I would like to see it. I played against that guy by the way, I’m talking about Kendrick Perkins for those of ya’ll who don’t know.”
Perkin replied Green by posting a video on his Twitter page, he did the video twice as he deleted the first which was filled with cuss words.
