Hey Draymond, what about Akron?

Apparently, Golden State’s Draymond Green doesn’t think much of Cleveland.  That would be the city, not just the team.

In yet another controversial statement, Green declared:  I don’t pay much attention to anybody in Cleveland.  They don’t seem to be the sharpest people around.

Maybe if Green and his colleagues had paid more attention, the Warriors would have won Game Four.  Instead, Draymond is heading back to Oakland with his tailbone you-know-where.

On the bright side, one classic photo during Game Four showed Draymond chilling on the bench while a group of players were going at it.  This showed remarkable improvement over last year’s impulsivity.

Perhaps Green could learn to love Ohio.  After all, his MVP’s father played for Cleveland, and his MVP (Steph Curry) was born right next door in Akron (at the very same hospital as LeBron James – must be something in the water).

So Draymond, don't be so quick to write off an entire city.  That’s called prejudice, and you wouldn’t want to be accused of that.
