When you are wrong, the best thing to do is admit that you are wrong. For me, this meant revisiting my take from last week about Draymond Green’s podcast. If you double down on what you said, you come across as a hater or someone who is bias. I don’t want to come across as someone who is a hater. When I said Draymond should stop podcasting, the Warriors were down 2-1 in the series. Green was not playing well at all. In fact, through the first three games of the series he averaged more fouls per game than points.
But from Game 4 to the end of the series, he looked like the Draymond Green we know he is capable of being. His shooting was still not great, but he impacted the game in other ways. Just like he always does. In Game 4, Green had 9 rebounds, 8 assists, and 4 steals. While watching the game, I was kind of irritated that Green kept passing up on open shots. But Green helped his team win, so therefore I couldn’t say anything. In Game 5, Green started the game looking to score and that energized his Warriors teammates. In the close out Game 6, Green was two assists shy of a triple double. Green turned it around and contributed to another Warriors championship. All while podcasting after every single Finals game.
So yes, I admit that I was wrong about Draymond Green podcasting after each game.
