In an interview with The Athletic’s Anthony Slater, a story reported by NBC Sports Bay Area, Green thinks that his head-to-heads with ficials across the league has got to change. “It’s bad. It’s horrible,” he said. “It’s really bad. I don’t know why it is. But I think it’s ridiculous. It’s ruining the game. It should be one , if not the main priority, to be solved. It definitely should.”

Later on in the interview, he admitted that a lot referees might be out to get him because a less-than-stellar reputation from years past. “A lot it is personal. When you give someone so much authority and they make it me against you, you can’t overcome that,” he explained. While there has been no ficial retort from the league or any its better-known ficials, this is surely going to stoke the fires that already exist between Draymond and the NBA, an organization that has suspended the forward multiple times in his career up to this point.
