Draymond Green Escalates Beef With Jusuf Nurkic

Green Nurkic

Draymond Green has elevated his beef with Jusuf Nurkic by taking a subtle jab at the Phoneix center on National television.

The Warriors forward appeared as a guest on Inside the NBA on Monday night.

One of the hosts, Charles Barkley, said he misjudged the Timberwolves because he previously didn’t trust big men Rudy Gobert and Karl-Anthony Towns.

But he was impressed that the T-Wolves swept the Suns in the first round.

Weighing in on the situation at the Suns, Green said that Phoenix “ain’t got no big man.”

For anyone that knows the history between Green and Nurkic, that was for sure a subtle dig Nurkic – the Suns starting center.

Of course, Nurkic saw and took to social media to respond, with a call back to a past diss of Draymond.

Early on in the regular season, Green was ejected and later indefinitely suspended for striking Nurkic in the face during a Warriors-Suns game.

Afterwards, Nurkic said, “What’s going on with him, I don’t know. Personally, I feel like that brother needs help. I’m glad he didn’t try to choke me…Hopefully whatever he got in his life, it get better.”

The pair have had plenty of run in’s since then over social media and after the Suns were embarrassingly swept, Green took the liberty of blasting Nurkic on his podcast.

“Yeah, you got to be really careful when you’re not that successful and you try to take jabs at people when you don’t play a large enough role in your team’s success [and] when you can’t really affect the outcome of the game. Like, you can go have 20 rebounds and lose a game. When you really don’t affect the outcome of the game, it’s really tough to take jabs at people because you got a jab in there and, like, you can’t affect what your end result is.”

Draymond added, “So, yeah. The big softie bowed out.”

Looks like this beef is far from over.
