Green on Rapinoe’s criticism: ‘I’m on their side’

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green said Thursday that he believes his tweets about women’s sports and the pay-gap with male athletes have been “extremely misconstrued,” saying in part, “I am on their side.”

Green spoke about the topic one day after U.S. women’s national team star Megan Rapinoe ripped his remarks, saying it was “unfortunate” that an athlete in Green’s position didn’t have a more informed opinion.

On Thursday night, Green gave a passionate, rambling response on the topic that lasted more than 10 minutes, repeatedly stating that he is “in support” of what Rapinoe is doing and is hopeful he can help women’s sports.
