Draymond Green: 'My Mom Can Hold Her Own'

OAKLAND (CBS SF) – For the second year in a row, the family of a Golden State Warriors player has been the victim of an incident at Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena during the NBA Finals.

It was before Game 6 last season that Dee Curry – Steph's family – was hassled about his credentials as he tried to enter the arena with his family.

Ayesha Curry took to social media and triggered a social media storm.

On Wednesday night, Draymond Green's mom -- Mary Babers-Green -- got into a verbal altercation with a Cavaliers fan in the aftermath of the Warriors' 118-113 win over Cleveland.

"They're (his family) is fine, it happens every year," he said. "Fans here are just rude. My mom can hold her own, though, she's good."

Babers-Green -- who is known for her social media posts -- said apologies were made after the incident.
