Draymond Green Declines to Address Mark Cuban’s Criticism Over The Word “Owner”

Draymond Green says he’s gonna leave Mark Cuban alone, but at his own doing and not because anyone told him such.

The Golden State Warriors star forward acknowledged Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban’s remarks about him, but he chose to comment further on the matter.

Asked if someone advised him not to address Cuban’s comments to ESPN:

“Nobody can prep me. I’m going to always say what I want. Ain’t no prepping me. At all. Ever. Don’t ever believe that. Can’t prep me for nothing. Don’t ever think that.

“I do live in America. However, you can’t prep me for nothing. Don’t ever think I’ve been prepped for an interview. Don’t work like that.”

Green’s non comment comes a day after Cuban told ESPN’s Tim MacMahon that Green “owes the NBA an apology” for suggesting in an Instagram post last week that the word “owners” be banned from professional sports.

“For starters, let’s stop using the word owner and maybe use the word Chairman. To be owned by someone just sets a bad precedent to start. It sets the wrong tone. It gives one the wrong mindset.”

Cuban responded of course:

“For him to try to turn it into something it’s not is wrong. He owes the NBA an apology. I think he does, because to try to create some connotation that owning equity in a company that you busted your ass for is the equivalent of ownership in terms of people, that’s just wrong.”

Rather than address Cuban, Green changed the subject to his game against the Nuggets.
