Draymond Green branded as ‘insecure’ by classmate

Speaking his thoughts has never been a problem for Draymond Green. However, the star of the Golden State Warriors may have gone too far when he recently disparaged Andrew Nicholson, a classmate who was selected in the 2012 NBA Draft.

On the “Podcast P with Paul George” episode from July 3, Green was questioned by George about which player the Warriors veteran thought was the “most ridiculous one” when it came to the 2012 selection.

It’s obvious that a query of that nature is laden for content’s sake. Green, however, raised the stakes by specifically mentioning Nicholson and going on the offensive against the St. Bonaventure player.

“At age 19, Andrew Nicholson was drafted ahead of me. Half the fight in winning is having the appearance of a basketball player, Green advised George. “You automatically lose respect when you’re on a team and you glance over to the other side of the court and see guys who don’t look like basketball players,” said one player.

He doesn’t even truly resemble a basketball player, says the man. He has an odd body composition. Do not misunderstand; I do not possess Adonis’ body. That particular one really, really, really infuriated me.

Green also made fun of Nicholson’s speaking voice and gait.

A few weeks later, Nicholson appeared on “Hip Hop Hoops” to discuss his response to Green’s well-known remarks. The former first-round pick for the Orlando Magic started by characterizing Green’s outburst as a symptom of insecurity before slipping in a dig at his reading comprehension.

“To be honest, I think that’s sort of awful and attribute it to his lack of confidence. … For the previous 11 years, I was unaware that he was considering me. I’ll be honest with you: I wasn’t thinking about you, Nicholson said.

Nicholson continued by saying that he has always wished the best for his fellow 2012 NBA Draft class members, including Green.

“The most regrettable aspect about it is that… I recognize Anthony Davis and Damian Lillard, two of the men from my draft class. those men who are really making it. Draymond was likewise one of them. I was glad to see him do well. Even if they are drafted above me or below me, I like to see guys succeed. Perhaps this is just a product of the way I was reared.

In sports, it’s usual for players to assert that they are superior than other players. In fact, it’s frequently endorsed and regarded as a sign of self-assurance. However, it seems a bit harsh to criticize other players for their appearance and mannerisms rather than their skills on the court.

After graduating from St. Bonaventure with a degree in physics, Nicholson played five seasons in the NBA. Since departing the NBA at the end of the 2016–17 season, he has since played for a number of teams in Asia.
