Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green is one of the most media savvy NBA personalities ever.
That is a big reason why he was effortlessly able to transition into life as a broadcaster and podcaster despite still being an active player.
That said, he suffered quite the misstep this past week.
In a now-viral video, Green can seemingly be seen having worked out with a very controversial figure:

Miles Bridges was charged by the Los Angeles County District Attorney this past week with one felony count of injuring a child’s parent and two felony counts of child abuse under circumstances or conditions likely to cause great bodily injury or death.
Although Bridges was released on a $130,000 bond shortly after his June 29 arrest, he faces up to 11 years in prison if convicted on all charges.
Some photos of his wife allegedly partying recently has led to an intensely polarizing conversation regarding his current legal predicament, but the severity of the charges against him cannot be understated.
Obviously Green and Bridges are both Michigan State products and share a bond over that, but this probably isn’t the time for the former to be working out with the latter.
At least not until the court system determines one way or another what truly transpired between Bridges and his wife.

The wheels of justice turn slowly, but the process needs to sort itself out.
Green obviously has always marched to the beat of his own drum, and this is no exception.
But it will be interesting to see if the backlash ultimately has any impact on how he deals with Bridges going forward.
