Draymond Green Jr. signed autographs for NBA fans in Boston

Five-year-old Draymond Green Jr. has become a star around the Warriors this season. Now DJ taking his show on the road.

Mary Babers-Green, mother to Draymond and grandma to DJ, joined 95.7 The Game’s “The Morning Roast” for a great interview Wednesday ahead of Game 3 of the NBA Finals. All three generations are in Boston to see Day-Day and the Warriors take on the Celtics at TD Garden.

During her conversation with hosts Bonta Hill and Joe Shasky, Babers-Green relayed a hilarious story about DJ at their hotel Tuesday night.

“The fans were like ‘Hey DJ!’ Everybody’s calling his name, ”Babers-Green said. “He goes, ‘Gigi! Gigi! I gotta get outside, they want my autograph! ‘ DJ was on his way outside signing some autographs. “

Gotta love it. DJ has a bunch of charisma for a youngster and he’s already got fans on the other side of the country.

We knew DJ was headed to Boston. After Game 2, he gave a funny joint interview with his dad to ABC 7’s Chris Alvarez, complete with a meme-able glance at the camera to end it.

Draymond Jr. has been spotted helping as a mini-equipment manager on the sideline during games, giving out high fives and towels alike. DJ has also been a huge help to Warriors assistant coaches during practice, helping get basketballs ready for Steph Curry to shoot. If you look at photos of the team following the Western Conference Finals, there’s DJ up front, cheesing for the cameras.

DJ is also following in Riley Curry’s footsteps and become a main attraction of his dad’s post-game press conferences.

“Dray as a father he’s been great,” Babers-Green said. “I’m watching him grow. He is a great father. He reminds me of my dad a lot. Of course my dad was the greatest dad ever to me. I watch Dray walk in his footsteps. He’s doing a great job. “

Earlier this season, Draymond told reporters that he doesn’t think DJ fully understands how amazing it is to be passing balls to Steph and Klay Thompson during practice, but that he’s grateful to share the time with his son.

“This kid is incredible,” Green said. “He walks around like he owns the place.”
