Once again families of NBA stars are complaining about how they are being treated at the NBA Finals. This time it’s Draymond Green’s wife Hazel.

Hazel Renee Green complained about how Warrior players were being treated by Boston Celtic fans during the NBA Finals. Specifically, the Boston crowd was not too kind to Draymond and seemed to delight in his poor game. They were also heard very clearly chanting “f*** you, Draymond” at one point.

Green took to social to complain about all the taunting that was taking place.

“Tough loss tonight but in NO WAY, shape or form should fans be allowed to chant obscenities at players!” Renee wrote on her Instagram story. “Are they not human? Is someone standing at your job saying off the wall things to you? The NBA has the audacity to have a whole code of conduct cart at every seat about fans and their behaviors and how they could be ejected from a game or banned but a whole crowd/section/numerous people get to chant (expletive) YOU DRAYMOND or call him a (expletive) or MF? And nothing? Like that’s OK? (Warriors) fans would NEVER!! My kids were at the game tonight hearing that mess! Very DISGUSTING of you little Celtics fans. Just shameful!”

While some of the Warriors players and coaches also complained afterward, her husband didn’t seem to care about what Celtic fans had to say and in fact pretty much stated that it’s just part of the game.

“They just talking,” Green said to reporters. “It’s not really my job to react to them. So, they did what I expected.”

Obnoxious fans are part of the game. Most players and their families realize that, but sometimes fans go to far and that’s what has upset Hazel Green.

It’s one thing to taunt a player about his game, it’s another when fans make it personal.
