Draymond Green's mum didn't want son to play for the Warriors due to myth

Draymond Green was selected by the Golden State Warriors in the second round of the 2012 draft.

Since then, he's gone on to win the NBA Championship with the team in 2015, and was selected for the 2016 All-Star game as well.

You could say playing for the Warriors has done wonders for Green and his NBA career, but not everyone was happy he was playing basketball in the Bay Area when he was drafted by the team.

According to the Blue Man Hoop, via Fox Sports, Green's mother, Mary Babers-Green, was asked how she initially reacted to her son being drafted by Golden State. At first, she wasn't sure where Oakland was, but once she found out where it was, concern arose, because she thought the state of California would soon be gone.

She said: "My initial reaction was “Where is that?!?” Then I thought about geography class growing up and they said California was going to fall in the ocean. And I was like, “Oh my God!”"

The chances of California falling into the ocean are zero, according to the United States Geological Survey, because it's just a myth. Movies like 'San Andreas' aren't going to happen anytime soon despite the fact the area has been due a very large earthquake for a while now.

With the Warriors currently sitting on a 48-4 record and well on their way towards another playoff run, and perhaps even another championship, it's safe to say Green's mother isn't worried about her son playing for Golden State anymore.
