Michigan State coach Tom Izzo has come under fire over the last day for his actions before and during a huddle in the Spartans’ win against Bradley. Izzo, who has a reputation for being a fiery coach, really tore into freshman forward Aaron Henry, getting right into Henry’s face and needing other players to restrain him.
It led to a ton of discussion about the extent to which it’s ok for a coach to chew out a player, especially when that player is a 19-year-old who is suiting up for him for free. Even by what college basketball fans have come to expect out of Izzo, he really let Henry hear it.
Draymond Green is on the list of the best players to ever suit up for Izzo, and there is not a more prominent Spartan currently playing in the NBA right now. The Golden State Warriors’ standout decided to take to Twitter to explain what happened from his perspective as someone who has been on the receiving end of Izzo’s huddles.
Green did make it a point to praise Henry for standing up for himself in the huddle, but ultimately wanted Izzo to keep being himself with the hopes of the Spartans getting a ring.
Michigan State will square off against Minnesota on Saturday at 7:45 p.m. on CBS.
