Draymond Green rips off NBA players from the ’80s and ’90s for misrepresenting their eras.

Draymond Green doesn’t have much patience for decades-old NBA players.

While addressing the media on Tuesday in the NBA Finals, the Golden State Warriors star looked at players from the ’80s and ’90s pretending that every game was a war that current players couldn’t survive. (Related: David Hoxtede is the true king of the North when it comes to college football)

Buckle up because his comments below are probably the most interesting basketball news you’ll hear all day.

What I’m going to say will probably upset a lot of people, but it’s also 100% true. Draymond Green is correct, and you are lying to yourself if you disagree.

There are a lot of old school fans in the NBA who pretend that players didn’t survive games in the ’80s. They act like men are dying on the field because it was so physical.

If you listen to some older folks talk about the NBA 30-40 years ago, you’d think people should count their blessings if half the roster survived the season. It is not true or accurate.

Yes, there were some physical players, but for the most part, old NBA players were battered in the current era. NBA players have never been older or more athletic than they are now.

If you put Draymond Green in the ’80s, he’s probably the strongest and most talented player on the field in 90% of the matches he’s played. However, if you listen to older audiences, you’ll think it’s a rub. It’s just fake nonsense.

Props to Green at least for having the courage to point out the obvious.
