Draymond Green and Kendrick Perkins’ feud continues to brew.
After the Golden State Warriors took home a game six win against the Memphis Grizzlies Friday night, things got heated between ESPN’s NBA sports analyst and Green.
During a post-game interview, Green went on a rant calling Perkins out by name for his recent media criticism. Notably, he called Perkins an “ogre.”

“Something came to my phone earlier. Some guy saying I’m scared to shoot the basketball. Scared and me in the same sentence is brutal. But you got a big ogre on TV talking about what Draymond says ain’t the gospel. It is the gospel. What I say is the gospel. When you say that multiple times on several different segments, you must think what I say is the gospel,” Green said.
“So, you got to come out and shut some guys up sometimes when you got people talking out the side of their neck. ‘Anybody can make the pass Draymond make.’ That’s just stupid,” Green continued.
“I’m talking about Kendrick Perkins, for those of y’all that don’t know. I’m never duckin’ no smoke.”
On Saturday, Perkins decided to shoot back. He shared a video on Twitter addressing Green directly and letting him know he ain’t cute.

“Hey Draymond, let me let you in on a little something, man, all that ogre, whatever you say I look like, man, you ain’t cute,” he said. “You ain’t handsome, man, you better thank that NBA logo, you better thank Jerry West. I’ve been with my wife since the 10th grade, dime piece before the NBA stuff, so don’t get it all twisted,” Perkins said.
“I can say whatever the f*ck I want to say when I want to say it, and I’m going to say it. I said that you weren’t looking to be aggressive, that you weren’t the Draymond of old, yeah you came out there and handled your business tonight, but thinking that I’m going to shut up…you can miss me with all that…I live boxing. I live wrestling all d*mn day straight up. I don’t give a d*mn about all that sh*t you talking about, you crazy as h*ll if you think you’re going to shut me up,” he continued.
Who’s winning so far? Take your pick.
