Warriors' Draymond Green encourages Raiders fans to boycott games in Oakland

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green has a message for Raiders fans who are about to see their team relocate to Las Vegas: Don't show up to the remaining games in Oakland.

After the Warriors took care of the Houston Rockets on Tuesday night, Green weighed in on the NFL's decision to allow owner Mark Davis to move his team to the Nevada desert.


"It's crazy. I feel bad for the city of Oakland, man. I don't even know how that's going to work, honestly, with a football team moving to Las Vegas. I feel bad for the city. If I was a fan, I wouldn't attend a game for the next three years. But that's just me.

"That's ridiculous. No way I would pay my money to attend a game. That's like moving the Dallas Cowboys or like moving the Packers. Like, moving the Raiders? You can move a lot of teams. Ain't many fan bases like the Raiders fan base, so. It's like moving the Boston Celtics from Boston or the Lakers from L.A., like, you just don't move certain franchises with the fan base that they have. So it's one thing if you're moving from Oakland to Fremont or something, you know, but to Las Vegas? I wouldn't attend a game.

"I won't attend a game. And I'm not a diehard Raiders fan, but I do support the city of Oakland, so, I feel like all fans should feel that way. You just don't do that. Like, come on, man. That's ridiculous."
