Draymond Green Booed In Return To Basketball Court

The return of Golden State Warriors player, Draymond Green to the basketball court took place over the weekend and it did nothing for the team but it earned the volatile player an earful from the Memphis Grizzlies fans.

According to CBS Sports, Green made his way to the court at FedEx Forum and as he entered the game, the Grizzlies fans booed him as he returned to action after being suspended for repeated “unsportsmanlike acts” last year. The forward was coming back from an indefinite suspension that only lasted 12 games, but he missed the past 16 as he worked to get back in game condition. If his play wouldn’t put the Warriors in a position to win, then his possible presence would. Yet, neither transpired as the Warriors lost to a Grizzlies team that was missing a slew of players including  Ja Morant, Desmond Bane, and Marcus Smart.

In the nationally televised game that took place on the celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, the only dream that the Warriors had was to get out of the stadium as they lost to a depleted Grizzlies team, 116-107.

As Green makes his way to being a bigger contributor to the Warriors, he came off the bench to only play 24 minutes. He didn’t do too badly in the stat category for the limited time he was in the game. He scored seven points, pulled down seven rebounds, dished out four assists, and had a steal.
