Draymond Green is a throwback tough guy in an era where finesse and three point shooting, but Charles Barkley isn’t a fan. After Green went nose to nose with New Orleans guard Rajon Rondo in a trash talking confrontation before halftime of Game 2 of the Warriors/Pelicans, the broadcast tossed to the Inside the NBA guys and Barkley said he wished Rondo would have punched Green in the face. Barkley then added that he would like to punch Green in the face.
You would think Barkley would appreciate Green for being a tough guy in a soft league, but clearly that’s not the case. Golden State won the game 121-116 to take a 2-0 series lead.

Following the game, when asked about Barkley’s comments, Green essentially told Barkley, do something or shut up.
