Warriors’ Draymond Green apologizes for halftime outburst
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Golden State power forward Draymond Green has apologized to his teammates, coaches and the organization for an emotional outburst during halftime of the Warriors’ 121-118 overtime victory Saturday at Oklahoma City.
Green said after practice Monday:
“I admit my mistakes. I made a mistake. I admitted my mistakes to my teammates, my coaching staff. I apologized to my teammates and my coaching staff, this organization.” He said such a tirade won’t happen again, insisting “that’s not who I am.”
Reigning MVP Stephen Curry, questionable for Tuesday’s game against Atlanta with a tender left ankle, said it is Green’s emotional personality that makes him so valuable.
Curry also was named Western Conference Player of the Week on Monday for his fourth such honor this season - the first in franchise history to win four in one season. He averaged 43.8 points, 7.3 assists, 5.8 rebounds and 1.50 steals as the Warriors went 4-0.
