Boston Celtics coaches are reportedly listening to Draymond Green's podcast for their scouting reports

Boston Celtics coaches are reportedly listening to Draymond Green's podcast for their scouting reports

Green's post-game interview was as eventful as the drama that took place in Game 3.

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green had himself a night during and after Game 3 of the NBA Finals — but for the wrong reasons. Aside from rendering his worst NBA Finals performance of his career, Green's post-game interview was as eventful as the drama that took place in Game 3.

During Green's post-game interview, Bleacher Report's NBA insider Jake Fischer asked the 3-time champion whether or not he wonders if his opponents tune in to his podcast to fish for intel in terms of the X and O's and game adjustments on the court. It seemed like Green took offense to Fischer's question, and he responded to the reporter by roasting him.

But little does Draymond know.

According to Fischer, a well-respected NBA author and reporter, Green's opponents are indeed listening to every podcast episode he releases. Fischer mentioned that the Boston Celtics coaches and staffers, in particular, are reportedly taking note of Green's insights on the series.

"Especially with the amount of time between Finals games," one NBA assistant coach told Fischer. "Both teams are definitely looking for any small advantage they possibly can," the assistant added, as Fischer writes.

Whether the Celtics staff got anything out of Green's new hobby remains uncertain. But what's for sure is that Boston isn't the only team that tuned in to "The Draymond Green show" this Playoffs, as even the Dallas Mavericks staff made an effort to do so during the Western Conference Finals.

Green mentioned that he doesn't give away anything on his podcast and that everything he says there is similar to what he tells the media after the game. However, Fischer reported that opposing teams had noted Green's thinking process and thoughts about their adjustments throughout the series — something the Warriors forward talks about regularly for almost 30 minutes in his episodes.

Green's podcast is headlining the NBA Finals.

Green's new venture has been the talk of the NBA Finals over the past couple of days. Talking heads on the media and NBA Twitter, in general, have been getting their jokes off as they feel Green should be focusing on winning an NBA championship instead of podcasting.

In fairness to Green's critics, they have the right to call him out for his poor performance in the Finals. He put up just 2 points, 3 assists, 4 rebounds, and fouled out in 35 minutes in a crucial Game 3. Green's play has been so inconsistent that he's averaging just 5.0 points a game on 26.3% shooting from the field in the Finals.

Whether or not Draymond continues podcasting is undoubtedly, by all means, his choice. He has addressed his haters and said he would continue doing so no matter what. But if there's one thing the 3-time champion can't continue doing, it's his inconsistent performances in the Finals.
