Draymond on possible Raiders move: ‘How could somebody even consider leaving Oakland?’

Before the Oakland Raiders beat the Denver Broncos on Sunday night, Draymond Green was the star of the pregame.

As the AFC West rivals warmed up, the Golden State Warriors forward made the rounds on the sidelines, posing for photos with fans and even chatting with Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie and owner Mark Davis.

“It was an incredible atmosphere,” Green said during his weekly appearance on the Damon Bruce Show on 95.7 The Game. “With all that the Raiders organization has been through, this fanbase really supports the Raiders. I don’t think there’s a fanbase out there like the Oakland Raiders — that’s for sure.”

Green went on to offer his opinion on the team’s proposed move to Las Vegas. It was an opinion that local fans likely wish he’d shared with Davis during their pregame conversation.

“You’re talking battling for first place in the division. I mean, it was incredible to watch. It was an amazing game, an amazing atmosphere. I sat at that game and wondered how could somebody even consider leaving Oakland? You know, when you’re talking about an atmosphere like that that the Raiders had.”

What Green forgot is that Joe Lacob — the owner of the Warriors — isn’t just considering leaving Oakland but is already in the process of doing it. Draymond GreenGolden State WarriorsLas VegasMark DavisNBANFLOakland Raiders
