Prior to this season, the Pistons played their home games in Auburn Hill, Michigan.
Draymond Green grew up about an hour away in Saginaw, Michigan.
On a recent episode of the "I Am Rapaport" podcast, Chauncey Billups and Michael Rapaport had the following exchange:
Rapaport: "Draymond Green is a churchmouse compared to Rasheed (Wallace)."
Billups: "First of all -- where do you think Draymond got it from? He was pretty much our ball boy."
Rapaport: "Was he around?"
Billups: "All the time. So him and Jordan Dumars -- who was Joe's son -- best friends. They were around the team every day, all day. We raised Draymond. That's my son. We raised him.
We're on a group chat all the time -- Draymond, myself, Ben (Wallace), Rip (Richard Hamilton), Sheed -- we on a group chat arguing whose teams are better ... that's our son!"
Did you know all of this? I did not know all of this.
