Draymond Green flipped out on a reporter for comparing basketball to Houston floods

Watch: Warriors' Draymond Green responds to postgame question about Houston floods

Severe flooding has impacted the city of Houston over the last week, killing eight people and costing the city about $5 billion in damages. And despite the situation having such serious implications in local resident's lives, one reporter took it as a chance to get a controversial quote out of Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green.

The reporter suggested to Green that Golden State's success in Houston has coincided with flooding in consecutive years. Here's the full question:

Draymond, here's an interesting question. Last year, you visited us. Game three, no flood, you win. Game four, there was flood, you lose. This year, you visit us, game three, there's a flood... you lose. Game four, there's no flood, you win. Does that mean ...

To which Green responded:

Brother, you asked me about the flood in practice the other day, and I said I pray for the city of Houston because you don't want to see anyone go thorough that. I feel like you keep trying to get at, like, us hitting threes or something — trying to get a controversial statement out of me. But you're not, because I feel sorry for the people of Houston.

People are losing their homes, losing their cars, losing their lives, losing loved ones, and you're trying to get a controversial statement out of me about the threes we're hitting? I know what you're getting at, but you're not getting that out of me. It sucks. If I was from Houston, I'd do anything I can to help the city out. And I'm sure some of those guys are going to do what they can to help the city out, and you saw the donation the other night. It sucks. Stop trying to do that. That's not cool, man.

You keep asking me the same question about this flood. These people are losing their lives, bruh. Losing their homes. Don't ask me that no more. Because it ain't cool and you're not getting the statement you want out of me. That's not cool, man, stop doing that.

Athletes berating reporters isn't typically a cool thing, but in this case, it seemed completely called for. A situation as serious as the floods in Houston have no place being associated with a basketball game at all -- especially not in a way that attempts to lure a player into saying something controversial.

Green logged 18 points, eight rebounds and six assists in the Warriors' Game 4 win over Houston, putting the Rockets in a win-or-go-home scenario in Oakland on Wednesday.
