Oh, Draymond Green. This Golden State Warrior may have had the a great year of his basketball career thus far - despite that contributing to his team's championship loss - but oh how time quickly changes the narrative. Even if for just a few moments.
On Sunday night, Green surprised many of his Snapchat followers when a picture of his genitals graced their telephone screens. As he later stated that he "immediately" knew he had made a mistake -- but his first response was to deny, deny, deny!
He took to Twitter and tweeted, "Hacked..... Can't win right now" to try to cover his tracks.
As you can imagine, many people didn't believe him.
"Lol sheesh" he then wrote, in an awkward laugh-it-off-and-it'll-go-away-via-the-internet kind of way. That, btw, never works!
But later in the day, he apologized for the picture, telling reporters such as Calvin Watkins that he had "pushed the wrong button," and Jonathan Feigan that it was "intended to be a private message," and that he knew it was a mistake "immediately, but not fast enough."
"We're all one click away from placing something in the wrong place," Green said. "I suffered from that this morning."
But, he actually thinks it'll help his career, not hurt it. “I truly believe we all go through points in our life that help propel us to the next level," Green continued. "I’m at the stage right now where all this stuff will help propel me to the next level as a basketball player, but more importantly as a man. I don’t live my life with regrets.”
This tweeter seems to have hit Green's initial reaction on the head. No wonder a little white lie followed.
