Being suspended after having hit Jusuf Nurkic on December 13 in the game between the Golden State Warriors and the Phoenix Suns, Draymond Green is on the verge of returning to action after missing 14 games in the NBA. However, he also thought about retiring.

According to what was reported by Adrian Wojnarowski and will be revealed by the 33-year-old power forward himself in the latest episode of “The Draymond Green Show” he was persuaded by the NBA Commissioner Adam Silver to think back at it, eventually convincing him.

Draymond Green said he told Adam Silver this is “too much” for him. “It’s all becoming too much for me and I’m going to retire”, he also revealed he told the NBA Commissioner. “You’re making a very rash decision and I won’t let you do that”, Adam Silver apparently told the 33-year-old player.

The four-time NBA champion added about the conversation they had. “We had a long, great conversation, very helpful to me. Very thankful to play in a league with a commissioner like Adam [Silver] who’s more about helping you than hurting you; helping you than punishing you. He’s more about the players”, Draymond Green commented about Adam Silver.

The Golden State Warriors are currently 11th in the Western Conference with a 17-19 record, while Draymond Green has been averaging 9.7 points, 5.5 rebounds and 5.8 assists over the 15 games he played before being suspended.
