Draymond Green Womens Jersey

OAKLAND, Calif. — All-Star forward Draymond Green(Draymond Green Jersey) apologized to his teammates Monday for his tirade at halftime of the Warriors’ overtime victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday night and vowed it will never happen again.

In a lengthy statement, he admitted he made a mistake and said he let his “emotions get the best of me.”

“You know I made a mistake, I admitted my mistakes to my teammates, my coaching staff. I apologize to my teammates, my coaching staff, this organization. That wasn’t the right way to handle what needed to be handled.

“As a leader of this team, I can’t do that because it sets a bad precedent for how everything is ran around here, for how everything should be ran, for how everything has been ran, and how everything will be ran going forward. It won’t happen again.

While he acknowledged his emotions “kind of got ahead of me,” he said any reports that he quit on his team are incorrect.

“I will never quit on my coaching staff, I will never quit on this organization. This organization has given me everything that I can ask for. So I support and represent this organization to the best of my ability. That’s not who I am. That’s not who I’ve been and not who I will become. ”

Stephen Curry said the Warriors know that Green would “never quit” on his teammates.

“He’s invested in what we’re doing. Obviously he’s an emotional guy, a fiery guy, that’s what we love about him, what he brings to the court. It spilled over to the locker room,” he said.

Curry said Saturday’s incident wasn’t the first time something like this has happened, but “we came out still united.” He downplayed the severity of the incident.

“You think that’s the first time somebody’s raised their voice? Or a player to player, or sometimes unfortunately player to coach, it doesn’t matter. That’s happened before and just the circumstances where it was heard,” he said.
Curry also joked: “You can write that story, sure. We’re in shambles right now.”

Warriors coach Steve Kerr brushed off the tirade, saying: “We don’t care.”

“This is the way life is these days. There’s 24-hour sports talk shows on radio and on TV. We’re in the spotlight because of our record. So it doesn’t bother us that everyone’s talking about it. We know, handled it internally, and we all love each other and we’re all good,” he said.

On ESPN’s First Take, Stephen A. Smith relayed an account of Green’s rant, saying the tirade began after Green took offense to Kerr showing film to the team that included a clip of a mistake made by Green, prompting the Warriors forward to “go off.”

When informed of Smith’s comments, Kerr sarcastically said: “Oh Stephen A. said that? Oh sorry. It’s my mistake. I didn’t see him in the locker room. So if he was there, then yeah. My fault.”

The Warriors are set to host the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday.

Anderson Varejao Womens Jersey

The defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors announced on Monday that former Cleveland Cavaliers forward Anderson Varejao(Anderson Varejao Jersey) has signed with the team.

Varejao cleared waivers Sunday and will earn the veterans minimum with Golden State for the remainder of the season, sources told ESPN’s Marc Stein.

The Warriors, who own the NBA’s best record at 49-5, were competing with the rival Spurs for Varejao, who spent his first 11-plus seasons with Cleveland.

Varejao, 33, appeared in 31 games this season for the Eastern Conference-leading Cavs, averaging 2.6 points and 2.9 rebounds per game. But the 6-foot-10 Brazilian will add much-needed size to the Warriors, who are short-handed along their front line because of injuries.

On Monday, Golden State released forward Jason Thompson, creating an open roster spot.

The Warriors have a need for an additional contributor on the front line with Festus Ezeli recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery and Andrew Bogut nursing an Achilles injury.

Varejao was dealt to Portland on Thursday before the trade deadline as part of a three-team swap that landed Channing Frye with the Cavaliers. The Blazers promptly agreed to waive Varejao despite the two years and nearly $14 million in guaranteed money left on his contract after this season.

Elite Johnny Manziel Jersey

HOUSTON — Former University of Texas and Oilers great Earl Campbell said he hopes to sit down with Johnny Manziel(Johnny Manziel Jersey) to help him change his path.

Campbell said a friend affiliated with Texas A&M asked him to speak with Manziel. Campbell also has reached out to Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin, and the two of them exchanged messages last week.

“We gotta get him some help,” Campbell told ESPN. “I know everybody says that, but if you’ve never been there, how can you listen to someone? I think some former Heisman winners like myself, some Hall of Famers that have done it all, he should sit down and listen to what we have to say because we’ve been through it all.”

Campbell and Manziel have the Heisman Trophy in common, but they were also from the same town of Tyler, Texas. Campbell went on to become a Hall of Fame running back with the Houston Oilers.

Manziel was a first-round draft pick by the Cleveland Browns, but has struggled to stay out of trouble since entering the NFL. Most recently, his ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley accused him of hitting her, damaging her hearing in one ear and dragging her by the hair during an argument. Crowley also filed for a protective order.

“I’m like everybody else that lives in Texas,” Campbell said. “I’m disappointed, I’m upset a little bit. But I think at some point, you have to say everybody was that age at one time and we have to get back to what’s important.

“… I would tell him that I used to be 23 years old. At one point I had Texas in the palm of my hand as far as an athlete. At a very young age, my mother said it’s not so important what you do now, it’s what you do over your lifetime. Johnny’s gonna be just like me eventually. He’s going to sit down and have a chance to sit down and talk to people. Is he going to be remembered for [his problems] or is he going to be remembered for a guy that did like Von Miller. Got up off the carpet and did something about it.”
