DENVER — Whatever Draymond Green thinks, he usually speaks.So it only seemed natural that the Warriors forward would have plenty to say after Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was critical about Green's call to stop using the word "owner," arguing "to be owned by someone just sets a bad precedent to start.""For him to try to turn it into something it's not is wrong," Cuban told ESPN. "He owes the NBA an apology. I think he does, because to try to create some connotation that owning equity in a company that you busted your (expletive) for is the equivalent of ownership in terms of people, that's just wrong. That's just wrong in every which way."Green was given the opportunity to express why he felt he was right after the morning shootaround in preparation for Saturday night's game against the Nuggets. Instead, he just changed the subject."The altitude here is tough. It's a tough place to play. … Anything else about the Nuggets?" he said.Reporters wanted to know more about Cuban, including whether the Warriors or Green's agency advised him not to respond."Nobody can prep me. I'm going to always say what I want," Green said. "Ain't no prepping me. At all. Ever. Don't ever believe that."Green took issue recently with the meaning of the word "owner" in sports when talking about Robert McNair, the owner of the NFL's Texans who had said his league "can't have inmates running the prison." Cuban expressed displeasure that Green had made a connection between the title of ownership and slavery."If you want to talk about slavery and everything that's important about it and some people who make comments and don't respect other individuals, great, let's have that conversation," Cuban told ESPN. "But don't try to suggest that because we have a team and the nomenclature is 'owners' because we own shares of stock, own equity, that it's analogous to slavery. That's just as bad (as McNair's comment). It's just as bad."Green was well aware of Cuban's response."I live in America. However, you can't prep me for nothing," Green said. "Don't ever think I have to prep for an interview. It's not about that."Game Highlights: Mike Conley scored 22 and the visiting Grizzlies made 13 3s and dominated off the bench to beat the Clippers 113-104.
