We find out more about Draymond Green’s mom, Mary Babers Green, and his dad, Wallace Davis, after his incident with teammate Jordan Poole.
The altercation reportedly began with the two players trash-talking before Green got in Poole’s face, resulting in Green punching Poole.
Video footage was then leaked to TMZ, who obtained the video, despite practice being closed to the media. It is unclear how it leaked but ESPN reported that the Warriors are “aggressively investigating” the incident.

Draymond Green’s mom’s deleted tweets
According to reports, Mary Babers Green, Draymond’s mom, recently came to her son’s defense on Twitter before deleting her account soon after.
NBC Sports report that in relation to the incident with Poole, Babers Green wrote: ‘They can get beyond this. Anything is fixable! Everything ain’t always what you think you see!’
“That wasn’t a Sucker punch. Dray didn’t aggressively go to Poole. His hands were down. Man to Man you go over to talk (to ask what’s up, what you say)! Got shoved and reacted.. End of story!”
She then reportedly deleted her Twitter account after writing: ‘I’m going to deactivate this app so no one can say what I think or believe!
What we know about Draymond Green’s parents
Fans wanted to know more about Draymond Green’s mom and dad. Draymond’s mom is Mary Babers-Green (more on her in a minute), while his biological father is Wallace Davis.
However, Mary and Wallace split up while Draymond was young and the Golden State Warriors star had no relationship with his real father growing up.
Mary later remarried, to Raymond Green, who is Draymond’s stepfather. It was during this time Draymond took his stepfather’s surname.
Draymond’s stepdad and mother got divorced when he was 12 years old. Following their divorce, Draymond’s mother raised her children as a single parent. In total, Draymond has five siblings. His brother, Torrian Harris, played college basketball for Nebraska-Omaha from 2009 to 2011.
His three sisters are LaToya Barbers, Jordan Davis, and Gabby Davis, and he also has another brother, Braylon Green, after his stepfather remarried and had another child.
Mary has been vocal throughout her son’s career
While Draymond has no relationship with Wallace Davis, he remains close to his mom, Mary Babers-Green, who has been a vocal supporter of him throughout his career
She was a guest on 95.7 The Game’s The Morning Roast last season and joked about Draymond and Charles Barkley’s relationship, which has grown as a result of Draymond appearing on Inside the NBA.
“I believe Charles Barkley has a job to do,” Babers-Green said (via NBC Sports). “He gets paid to be a heckler. If Dray is the one you wanna pick on, go ahead and pick on him. But he can always put up a middle finger and say, ‘It’s a ring, Chuck.’ He can’t deny that. He doesn’t have a ring, so, hey. If you’re a great or not, it doesn’t show if you don’t got that ring. That’s what they play for.”
However, she was less kind to ESPN’s Kendrick Perkins, who got into it with Draymond last season.
“He doesn’t really bother me at all,” she said. “I never even knew who Kendrick Perkins was until recently.”
Babers-Green also appeared on The Morning Roast before Game 3 of the Finals between the Warriors and Celtics. Speaking about the physicality and drama that’s been on display in the series, she said (via NESN 360): “Them crying was just ridiculous because they supposedly are the tough guys.
“So if you’re a tough guy, why you crying when somebody gets tough with you? Just play the game. Just go ahead and play the game.”
