Cedric Maxwell insists he has no beef with Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green.
The former Boston Celtics star and current radio analyst for the team made a comment about Green after Green’s antics in Game 2 of the 2022 NBA Finals.
Green spent much of the game jawing at and antagonizing Celtics players, and Maxwell said Green would have gotten knocked out if he pulled that stuff in the 1980s.
Green fired back, saying Maxwell talked a tough game, but he was probably bullied more often than he got physical with others. The banter between the two has been entertaining.
Maxwell came back and implied that Green didn’t know what he was talking about since he wasn’t even born when he played. He told Green to go ask his daddy who he was.
During a Tuesday press conference, Green responded to Maxwell’s comments. He implied that Maxwell talked a tough game but wasn’t a true tough guy.
Green clearly doesn’t know what he’s talking about, and Maxwell let him know that.
“Didn’t he see Bill Laimbeer get beat down in front of us in the Garden with Robert Parish out there?” Maxwell said. “You can talk about ’80s all you want. It’s not about me and him.
“I was just pointing out that in the ’80s there were some guys like Kermit Washingon, Hakeem Olajuwon. There were a bunch of guys who were mean, tough guys.
Look, I’ve been in enough of those (fights). Draymond wasn’t even born when I was playing or was he? Let me do the math here. Draymond, ask your daddy who I was.”
