For some reason duns that aren’t extremely familiar with urban culture will only see the tip of the iceberg in certain situations and think that they know it all. Some fake media-type had the nerve to ask Draymond Green if he were the modern day Charles Barkley because he talks so much trash. So Draymond (Day-Day) gave the dun what he came for and answered with this:
“Hell no! “I’m the modern-day Draymond Green. F— no.” He followed that up with, “[Chuck] told y’all in ’90-what that he wasn’t your kid’s role model anyway … so there you have it. He wasn’t my role model. I grew up in Saginaw, Michigan. … That’s what you do, you talk. You talk junk during basketball. That’s how I was raised. I was raised in a family like that, so I didn’t need a Charles Barkley to influence me.”
He finished the joint up with, “I was raised by Mary Babers. In the Babers family, that’s what you do. You speak your mind. It ain’t got nothing to do with Chuck. I wasn’t a Charles Barkley fan growing up. No disrespect to Chuck. He’s a great player, but as I got older, I watched his game because I knew he was undersized and the things that he could do, I tried to add some of that stuff to my game. But nah, he didn’t influence me at all.”
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! First of all, Draymond gets an A+ for the response!! Because to even ask that question means that you know nothin’ about the players that you’re coverin’! Most cats that grew up in the hood talk $100 worth of noise 24 hours a day 7 days a week bruh. Especially, if they’re good!! Day-Day just told you where he grew up playa and that’s ANY HOOD, USA!! Most cats that grew up in the hood possess a strong mouthpiece bruh.
So to think that ole boy got his bravado from watchin’ Charles Barkley is to be ignorant urban hood culture. And if you’re coverin’ the NBA you need to be at least aware of what types of environments that boyz come from. Draymond answered that dun like a straight up G in the G Code. What blew my mind where all of the media-types today that got upset with Draymond for answerin’ the question with no excuses.
Check this out playa, he doesn’t have to bow down to Barkley because he played back in the day. He doesn’t even have to respect him if he doesn’t want to. It’s his choice! He’s a grown man!!
Day-Day is doin’ it his own way and if you don’t like the way he answered the question then there’s something wrong with you, not Draymond. Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
2) Mouthpiece: verb – to have the ability to talk a good game.
3) G Code: noun – to operate within the culture of some real playas. That means that he doesn’t care what you think about him.
The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
