There’s been a lot of back and forth between Draymond Green and the Boston Celtics, which has prompted the mother of the Golden State Warriors star to get involved in the smack talk.

Green’s mom, Mary Babers-Green, sounded off on the Celtics and their “tough guy” mentality during an appearance on 95.7 The Game in the Bay Area.

“Them crying was just ridiculous because they are supposedly are the tough guys,” Babers-Green said. “So if you’re a tough guy, why you crying when somebody gets tough with you? Just play the game. Just go ahead and play the game.”

The Celtics have been critical of Green’s play, particularly Jaylen Brown, who got into it with him during a brief scuffle in the first half of Game 2.

“Don’t get caught up in that. Just do what we do best. We ain’t got time for that. Just come out and play basketball, let everything else take care of itself,” Brown told reporters on Tuesday. “I’m going to come out, do my job. Everybody needs to come out and do their job. We’re here to play basketball, so don’t get caught up in all the antics and stuff like that. Just come out and play.”

Draymond Green Still Gives His Mom Anxiety With Play

Green set the tone for the Warriors in a Game 2 win with some scrappy play and pushing things right to the line, picking up a technical early and nearly getting ejected.

“I wouldn’t be able to live with myself if I’m going on about my summer and we lost the NBA Finals because we couldn’t meet force with force,” Green told reporters on Tuesday. “So I think that was just kind of it for me, and understanding that, like I said, that is my department. That’s where I’m supposed to lead, and I can’t let my guys down.”

While Draymond can take care of himself, he still gives his mom some anxiety when he plays his physical brand on basketball. But as she noted, it’s nothing new.

“The older I get, Dray gives me anxiety,” Babers-Green said. “But it’s who is, I’m used to it. It’s nothing new. It’s who he’s been since he was 6 years old. He’s the same guy. That’s Draymond. If he doesn’t think the game is tough enough, he’ll go into character.”
