Draymond Green Responds to Racially Motivated Comment by Memphis Meteorologist

SAN FRANCISCO (CRON) — After two dramatic games in Memphis that had a series of throws and flagrant fouls, that trend appeared to continue in Game 3 of Saturday’s Western Conference semifinals between the Warriors and Grizzlies in San Francisco.

Grizzlies forward Kyle Anderson was ejected to the left at 6:19 to quarrel an offensive foul play. That prompted FOX 13 Memphis meteorologist Joey Sulipeck to tweet a racially charged comment towards Warriors forward Draymond Green.

“And chew on it: Draymond runs his ankle-ripping open mouth ENTIRE GAME, but mild-mannered Kyle Anderson denies a call and gets ejected? Next level jack*sery,” Sulipeck said after the game in a now-deleted tweet.

Green responded to his Instagram Story late Saturday night, sharing a story by KRON4’s Jason Dumas. The four-time NBA All-Star said: “(Five laughing emojis) are you surprised? Do not apologize. STAND UP!” in answer.

“Just let him STAND ON WORDS! no longer in (three wheat emojis,)” Green said on his Instagram story from Sunday 4 p.m.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr shared his thoughts on the incident during a news conference Sunday.

“Am I surprised that a weatherman would offend Draymond? In 2022, not at all,” Kerr said. “This is America. That’s how we work.”

The historical context of the term “knuckle-dragger” has to do with monkeys. Corresponding Oxford Dictionarythe term is defined as “a stupid man who thinks and behaves in a simple, basic way”.

Sulipeck deleted his Twitter account on Sunday afternoon. KRON4 has reached out to FOX 13 in Memphis for comment but has not yet received a response.
