Draymond Green has another reason to pass out cigars (other than winning a ring) — he is a new father.
Draymond Jamal Green Jr. was born Thursday at 3:55 a.m.
Congratulations to Green and his family.
Today at 3:55am PST Draymond Jamal Green was welcomed into the world! I've never experienced such a feeling like I did when I watched his entry. Family is such an important part of my life and to welcome a kid into this world is a dream come true. @jaykay35 you were a soldier and I appreciate you more than you will ever know! My baby girl Kyla was there and slept through the entire thing but she was also a soldier through the whole process and will be a great big sister! It's been a long time coming and it has finally come where we welcome Draymond Jr. Into the world! I am super thankful and overjoyed!!! Thanks to my Mama & mother in law Jackie for holding it down until I made it!
On the court, this means Green will not be with the Warriors Thursday night in Brooklyn to take on the Nets, reports CSNBayArea.com.
He is questionable for Sunday’s Christmas Day game against the Cavaliers in Cleveland.
The birth of his child and soaking in that experience, bonding with him, and being in that moment is far, far more important than any basketball game. Mature adults understand that. If he’s not there Sunday, he’s missing the game for the best of reasons.
The Cavaliers will be without J.R. Smith for that game following surgery on a broken thumb.
