Warriors Star Victim of $1 Million Robbery: Report

Golden State Warriors

Getty/Ezra Shaw Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green pump each other up after Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals against the Trailblazers.

The Golden State Warriors’ Draymond Green may play in San Francisco, but like many athletes and celebrities, he actually lives in Los Angeles — where his home was robbed during the Super Bowl.

Green was shown on camera multiple times in the same suite as LeBron James throughout the 2022 Super Bowl on February 13. He seemed to enjoy his time there and posted several Instagram Stories from the game.

But while Green was at the Super Bowl at SoFi Stadium, someone was burglarizing and robbing his LA home, according to a report from TMZ. The outlet reported that Green returned following the game to find his home “ransacked.”

An estimated $1 million worth of jewelry, watches and other expensive personal items was stolen, TMZ reported, adding that no arrests have been made in the incident.

Other sports stars in the Los Angeles area have been robbed in the past. In September 2018, during a Thursday night Los Angeles Rams game, Rams wide receiver Robert Woods’ house was robbed. Then-Los Angeles Dodgers’ star Yasiel Puig was also robbed the same month, the fourth time since March 2017, “all occurring during times when he’s been obligated to MLB games or responsibilities,” USA Today reported.

Warriors’ Draymond Green Having Fun at All-Star Weekend

Even though Green was selected to be part of the All-Star team, he will not be participating in the game due to his back injury. However, he still made the trip out to Cleveland to participate in the All-Star festivities.

With the crowd on hand during one of the practices, the former Michigan State player was showered with boos from the crowd. Green loved it, as he motioned for the crowd to continue and get louder.

Certainly, Cleveland fans still remember that the Cavaliers and the Warriors played in four straight Finals just a couple years ago, with the Warriors winning three of those. The Warriors forward is one of the most polarizing players in today’s game, and he is clearly used to the polar opposite reactions he gets from passionate fans.

Warriors Have Been Mum on His Return

Without the presence of Green, the Dubs have been sputtering and have likely lost the opportunity to finish at the top of the Western Conference in the standings. Green has missed the past 21 games for the team, and the Warriors have gone 13-8 in that stretch. Before Green sat, the team was 29-9 and on pace to match Phoenix at the top of the standings.

Green said in a February 3 press conference that he wanted to be back around the start of March, but that he could not guarantee it. This is the most concrete timetable anyone around the situation has given.

The team released an update to his status on Wednesday, February 16, but did not provide any specific details on a return. The Dubs kept it open-ended and vague, writing, “it’s anticipated that he will return to play at some point after the All-Star break.”

The playoffs are around the corner, and it would help if Green can return to get back in the rhythm with longtime teammates Steph Curry and Klay Thompson.
