Golden State Warriors F Draymond Green apologizes for tirade
Monday February 29th, 2016

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green has apologized for his halftime tirade against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday, he told reporters Monday.

“I made a mistake,” Green said. “I admitted my mistakes to my teammates and my coaching staff.”

ABC’s Lisa Salters called Green’s rant a “profanity-laced tirade” during which he was “yelling and screaming” about his struggles in the first half. 

“I am not a robot,” Green said, according to Salters. “I know I can play, you have me messed up right now. If you don’t want me to shoot, I won’t shoot the rest of the game.”

Green finished his team’s eventual 121–118 overtime win with two points, 14 rebounds, 14 assists and four blocks in 44 minutes.
