The tension between Jusuf Nurkic and Draymond Green reached its peak on Saturday, marked by continuous verbal exchanges throughout the game, along with instances of taunting and a little bit of shoving.
Following the Suns’ loss, Jusuf Nurkic expressed his frustration, pointing out that Green’s behavior during the game indicated that he had not learned anything from his previous 12-game suspension.
Green had been suspended by the league after striking Nurkic in the face back in December.
In response to Nurkic’s comment that Green did not learn anything, Draymond noted, “If he wants me to walk around quiet like him I’m never gonna do that. Quiet guys don’t win.”
Reporter: “[Jusuf] Nurkic said after the game that he thought your antics tonight proved you didn’t learn anything.”
Draymond Green: “If he wants me to walk around quiet like him I’m never gonna do that. Quiet guys don’t win.” 🗣️
