Don't bother asking Draymond Green any questions about playing NBA 2K, or any other video game for that matter. He's not into them anymore. Why? Blame his competitive spirit. "Anything I do, I’m trying to win," Green told Dan Woike of the OC Register. "I’ve always been the same way. That’s me. I stopped playing video games because I hate losing. I wasn’t very good, so I stopped."
overly competitive spirit doesn't end there. The Golden State Warriors star forward is also incredibly cutthroat in group text messages, according to his former Michigan State teammate Travis Walton.
If Walton or one of his friends crack a joke at Green’s expense in a group text message, they know what to expect because with Green, nothing is off limits.
"He’ll find pictures on the internet. He’ll compare you to other people," Walton said. "He takes it to another level. He’s so naturally competitive at everything. He wants to win or have the leg up, no matter what’s going on."
Head here to read the rest of Woike's piece and to see how Draymond got revenge on his teammates after struggling during conditioning drills, as well as how he gets when the team plays credit card roulette over paying for dinner. It's no wonder Kobe Bryant says he sees a lot of himself in Green. Whether it's on the court or some random situation that has nothing to do with basketball, both guys seem to be cut from the same cloth.
