The Golden State Warriors bought the 38th pick of the NBA Draft from the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night. The move surprised many, including Draymond Green.
The next day, as the Warriors officially introduced the rookie, forward Jordan Bell, at a press conference, GM Bob Myers told a funny story about how Green reacted to their move to add Bell to the championship squad.
Myers said Green sent him a text message full of expletives while he was driving home after the draft. Myers continued:
“(Draymond Green) said, ‘What the expletive is your problem?’ Then he said, ‘I have to hear about this expletive on the internet? You didn’t expletive tell me about it.’
“I called him and I said, ‘OK. Alright. Calm down.’ He said, ‘I need his number. I need to talk to him,’ and so I gave it to Draymond. He’s kind of like our team mom, in a way.”

Then, Bell was asked what Green said to him, and Bell went on to give a detailed explanation of how he struggled to get Green on FaceTime.
However, when they were both finally connected, the 22-year-old said he had a great talk with Green. Bell said Green told him:
“He was like, ‘Yo, enjoy this night. Enjoy it. It only happens once, but after this night, we have to get back to work. We trying to get rings over here, so be ready for it.'”
Green went from sending expletive-filled texts to sharing a kind yet motivating message with Bell that the draftee will probably never forget. It all sounds … very Draymond Green.
