Talking about his new teammate Marquese Chriss, Draymond Green said tha media usually blame players and not teams when top picks don’t pan out.
Per ESPN, Asked why organizations don’t get blamed more, Green pointed to how the media covers the league.
“Because you’re friends with them,” Green said. “And you want all the access from them. So the way you guys will come out and bash players, you don’t do that to organizations because it’s all about access and protecting your future. No one really protects these younger guys’future because it’s all about what can I do for myself. So no one talks about the organizations. It’s always just the player, player, player because they can’t do s— about it but be young and their name carries no weight and then be out of the league and onto the next thing. So that’s what I think it is. No Phoenix writer is going to bash the Phoenix Suns. But let’s be frank about it: When he was there, the organization was terrible. Everything was going wrong, but he get blamed like he’s the problem. When he left, ain’t nothing go right. So that’s my take on it.”
