Some fans are not happy with Draymond Green's gig on "Inside the NBA" during the 2024 NBA playoffs. Green had a lot of time on his hands after the Golden State Warriors failed to qualify for the postseason, losing to the Sacramento Kings in the NBA Play-In Tournament.

CJ Fogler on X took a shot at Green by citing the Warriors star's Kia commercial that was released earlier this season. It featured Green and his daughter Olive shooting a basketball on a hoop near a cliff, giving Fogler some material to work with.

"Don't need analysis from a guy who puts a basketball hoop on the edge of a cliff," Fogler wrote.

Some NBA fans used CJ Fogler's initial post to pile on Draymond Green, who has received mixed reactions for his stint on "Inside the NBA" alongside Shaquille O'Neal, Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson.

"Bro has lost more balls than Lance Armstrong," a fan commented.
"Explains why he's such a poor shooter. One bad miss and he's done shooting for the day," one fan wrote.
"There's no way he acts that calm to his daughter when her a** keeps chucking the ball down the gorge," another fan replied.

More fans made fun of Draymond Green's commercial, given the poor positioning of the hoop if it was a real setup. Courts near cliffs should have a protective net or fence to prevent basketballs from falling and being lost.

"You'd have to be so rich to do this lol… like buy a rack of balls every week," a fan commented.
"Better not trip and land past the hoop yourself," another fan remarked.
"I respect it. He expects he won't miss. That's real," one fan wrote.

Some fans claim 'Inside the NBA' became unwatchable because of Draymond Green

Draymond Green became the fifth member of the "Inside the NBA" crew in the 2024 NBA playoffs after the Golden State Warriors failed to make the playoffs. Green has a contract with TNT, so he's just doing his job for the network.

However, some fans are not a fan of Green's stint with one of the best sports shows on television. Some even deemed it "unwatchable" and preferred to have the original four-member panel of Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Shaquille O'Neal.

They want to savor the moments, as the show is likely to end next year as the NBA's deal with TNT expires.

"Why the f*ck is Draymond on Inside the NBA? If the show has one more season left, this is not how they want to go out. He doesn't belong there. Unwatchable," a fan commented.
"It's brutal that TNT feels like Draymond adds anything. He's unwatchable, and it's a stain on this crew's final shows together," another fan claimed.
"Draymond on the show is like adding a third wheel to a date – it's just awkward and nobody asked for it," one fan posted.
