Draymond Green spent nearly five minutes talking about Jordan Poole’s punches that took him to new heights of NBA villainy. The most accurate statement in this time period:

“We can’t change what happens, but we can control what happens going forward, and that’s where we are.”

Green, Peyton Manning’s Omaha Productions and Warner Bros. If the Discovery documentary is any indication, Green is very interested in checking out what’s going on ahead.

Released ahead of the NBA’s season opener on TNT, Green examined several aspects of Warriors training camp, such as the media day complaints and the fun of preseason games in Japan, but it was the Poole kick that everyone wanted to see him talk about. he was fined and not penalized despite being away from the team for a few days.

When the documentary finally reached that area, it became very clear how Green saw the reaction to punching a teammate. The Golden State Warriors star is the protagonist of his own story, which is true for any athlete making their own documentaries, but using a clip of him kissing his daughter was a bit too much as he claimed he didn’t care about the punch’s reaction:

Green’s view:

“You never know people’s opinions right away, so you give people some time to pitch their opinions, which frankly I don’t care about people’s opinions. To be completely honest with you, I never really knew how blown away you were. Because I’m too lazy to search Instagram or look at comments.” I don’t waste time.

“I don’t really read a lot of tweets, so I was at home hanging out with my kids. If you want me to be honest with you, I still don’t know how much the world can think it’s blown up.”

Yes, Green doesn’t care how much it blows up, even if he said it himself. watched the video 15 times and expressed outrage that the video was leaked. And he made a nationally televised documentary about it.

The documentary makers were certainly aware that the video was blowing up, and gave Green the air of an “isolated hero” by having the narrator call Green’s absence from the team “exile for no better word” and portray his solo workouts at a high level. drama.

The documentary’s never-stated but overarching message is that something bad has happened to Green. He punched Poole, and then ex-media and pundits started calling him a bad teammate, saying he deserved a suspension and questioning his future with the Warriors.

But Green doesn’t care. Courageous leader Green never lets the consequences of his actions get to him. Why would you? It’s Draymond Green.

Yet the great hypocrisy on TNT may be that the documentary was aired. Green publicly apologized to Poole and his family for the “shame” they had to deal with. Poole said he wanted to continue. And now, on a day of celebration for the Warriors, Green is broadcasting his own media about the punch for the biggest possible NBA audience and talking about the “reverse” of the situation.

Finally, the documentary with inspiring music as Green looks forward to the next season and the chance to repeat. The first, though, is Warriors’ ring night, and the narrator didn’t even miss the opportunity to make it a (directly self-created) way that Green overcame challenges:

“For Draymond, perhaps this [ring night] It will probably be of extra importance as someone who almost escaped.”

Green isn’t alone in making his own documentary, given the fact that all other famous athletes have their own production companies and a constant thirst for sports content in today’s broadcast world. He joins Michael Jordan, Tom Brady, Derek Jeter, Magic Johnson and many more.

Green is very aware of this as he talks about athletes leading the “new media” wave against the old media hot shots and clickbait. And yet, for all the thoughts you might have about Skip Bayless, at least he didn’t release a documentary about how hard it is to punch someone and not feel bad about yourself.

This is where Green’s documentary takes on a more sinister tone. Without even including Poole’s view of the event, Green presents his own side of the story in full HD, ready to take control of a narrative that dares to threaten him.
