Kade tweets baseball reality to Draymond Green

31-year-old Draymond plays at the power forward position for the Golden State Warriors. Notably, the NBA icon has been a three-time NBA champion and a three-time NBA All-Star. After a match, Green tweeted saying, ”Fly in the day of the game. After playing a game the night before. And play a game. Wow”

Kade McClure was not happy with the NBA star’s tweet as he went ahead and tweeted about the difference in the struggle of a baseball and NBA player.

“In pro baseball, you take a bus 10 hours through the night after a game from NC to NJ. Sleep in a 1-star hotel for maybe 5 hours, get up go to the field, and play for $700 a month, Draymond,” Kade tweeted.

Kade’s comment got the attention of Draymond himself, who had a savage reply. Draymond Green reposted Kade’s comment on his Instagram story, and wrote, ”No!! That’s the incentive of making it to the big league.”

Basketball fans also did not appreciate Kade’s tweet comparing NBA with pro baseball, as they came forward to support Green.

While another fan attacked the whole baseball sport, claiming players just stand in one position, ”Yea then you proceed to stand in one spot on the field for 4 hours. Please never again compare Baseball with any other sport except golf.”

Of course, there were some Twitter users who sided with Kade; however, Draymond has way more fan following than the baseball star. Those were some interesting takeaways and stands in the baseball vs basketball online war. Do you think it is fair to compare the two games and the lifestyle of the players? And, if you do, who is more correct here Green or Kade?
