Draymond Green’s new Beats By Dre commercial throws shade at James Harden

Remember when James Harden said that the Warriors weren’t that good? That caused a big stir during the regular season as the Warriors won all four games they had against the Rockets by double-figures. Entering this Western Conference finals, that was the talk of the series as people were reminded that Harden had dismissed the Warriors as a good team.

With the Warriors up 2-0 on the Rockets in the series, Beats By Dre released this new commercial in which a reporter mentioned the exact same scenario among (without mentioning Harden’s name) other thoughts¬†from supposed haters of Draymond Green. In classic Beats style, Green put on his headphones and walked away from the onslaught of media questions.

The commercial takes a jab at Harden and the Rockets and with the Warriors now 6-0 against them this year, it’s just icing on the cake to a quote from months ago that is still being talked about. ¬†Green probably doesn’t care what Harden said, but for the commercial, it’s good TV to remind Harden about his foolish words.

Also mentioned in the commercial is his size and his mother. Check out the commercial above.

Metta World Peace turned back into Ron Artest last night

I was out of the house most of the day on Sunday and I didn’t get a chance to catch this until late at night while watching SportsCenter. I had heard that Metta World Peace had elbowed somebody but I wasn’t sure exactly about the details. Now after watching the video, I’m disgusted.

For this instance, World Peace claimed that he was celebrating and he accidentally elbowed James Harden in the head. Yet if it was unintentional, I wonder why he didn’t look back after he made contact.

I can believe he was celebrating but a part of Ron Artest came back. He was selfish with his celebration and violent with the elbow. And he had no concern immediately hitting Harden until he was about to get attacked by Serge Ibaka before the officials broke it up.

This is the kind of stuff that Ron Artest would do. He said the right things afterward but I still feel that even though he changed his name, he’s still the unstable, volatile player. Last night, we saw Ron Artest.
