Draymond Green on Celtics fans: “I didn’t really give much to the crowd anyway”

Celtics fans let it be known how they felt about Draymond Green as they chanted expletives towards the Warriors forward in Game 3 of the NBA Finals in Boston.

His wife Hazel Renee took to Instagram to express her disgust with the crowd that chanted obscene things to her husband while she and their kids were in attendance.

Ahead of Game 4 which will also take place in Boston, Green was asked about the crowd and whether he was able to shut out all the noise from the outside and focus on the game.

“I can still do that,” the three-time NBA champion said. “It can affect [my family] and I understand that. But for me I’m going on the court. Those people chanting that aren’t on the floor and quite frankly my family aren’t there with me either.

“So, at the end of the day it’s me and my teammates out there on the court versus their guys. That just has to be what it is. Channel and focus all my energy there. I didn’t really give much to the crowd anyway which I kind of think was a little more of an issue than me if I did.

“So, like I said, it’s just about me finding the balance and just, like I said on my podcast, being Draymond Green. I know how to be him better than I can be anyone else. I know how to be him better than anyone else can be him. So, I just got to be myself.”
