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.”
