Draymond Green mocks Stephen Curry and Charles Barkley

While Davidson College took on Michigan State University, two former players were fighting off the court. Although Draymond Green and Stephen Curry might be good friends, they went against each other in a friendly wager. While Green betted on Michigan to get the better of Davidson, Curry thought otherwise.

Interestingly enough, NBA legend Charles Barkley also pitted in favor of Davidson College. Green called him out saying, “Also, Chuck on TV picking Davidson. Come on man, we’re Michigan State. It’s actually a shame that Davidson stayed in the game.”

If the mocking by Green wasn’t enough, Curry would need to complete a punishment set by Green for picking Davidson over Michigan. Speaking on his Instagram, Green said, “Steph, we will see you showing up soon with that Sparty costume on. I’m gonna order you a Draymond Green Michigan State jersey, or you can wear my Final Four jersey.”
