Draymond Green complained about the league’s “double standards” when it comes to players. Now, Lakers star LeBron James has also come out in full support of Greens’s statements regarding the treatment of Andre Drummond and many more. Draymond Green pointed out that there is a stark difference between two situations of a possible trade. One being the player asks for the trade himself, and the other being the franchise wants to trade him.
LeBron James has said that he is “right with” Green and his statements. James is the face of the game. Moreover, his speaking out against the league regarding any issue is bound to bring about massive changes in the system.
The interesting predicament of Andre Drummond
Cleveland Cavaliers veteran Andre Drummond is not being played as much as he would like. The reason for that is not an injury or lack of good performance. In fact, it is quite the opposite. The Cavs want to sit Drummond out because of a potential trade and cannot risk any injuries that may affect his condition.
Drummond has played exceptionally well this season, averaging 17.5 points and 13.5 assists per game. However, young Jarrett Allen is the preferred center for the Cavs and that is why a trade for Drummond is on the cards.
What LeBron James had to say on this subject:
After the victory against Minnesota Timberwolves, LeBron James expressed his opinions on this matter. He said, “It’s the narrative of what the league has always been. From a team’s perspective, they control the narrative. They’ve controlled the narrative for how players should be, how they should act, how they should treat the organization. … We just want people to understand that there’s two sides of the coin. It’s not just one-sided.”
