Draymond's mom offers hilarious training tip for Wiseman

Warriors

Draymond Green's mom, Mary Babers-Green, is a fiery individual. And her passion at times is on full display on Twitter.

Babers-Green provided another example of this during the Warriors' loss to the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday night, when she responded to a tweet from The Athletic's Marcus Thompson.

The 19-year-old in question is Warriors rookie James Wiseman, who sometimes struggles to catch passes cleanly and secure rebounds/loose balls.

It's safe to assume Steve Kerr and the Warriors' coaching staff will not be adopting Babers-Green's strategy for Wiseman, but hey -- you never know.

The 7-foot-1 center recorded eight points (4-for-11 from the field), nine rebounds and two blocks in 26 minutes vs. the Pacers. He did not get the opportunity to close the game, as he subbed out with 3:29 remaining and the score tied at 90.

"I thought James did well," Kerr told the media. "Every night is a good night for James even though it's going to be frustrating for him at times. He was frustrated with his fourth foul that he picked up late in the first half.

"But it's a great experience to go through it and to understand how you have to play with fouls, how you have to play against a team playing zone as a big -- what are your responsibilities.

"This is a real challenge for our team and for James to try to piece all of this together on the fly with teams throwing a lot of different defenses at us. There's a lot going on for James for somebody who has only been in the league for a few weeks.

 

"Great experience. It's gonna be frustrating at times, but he's gonna to get better as a result."
