Draymond Green Short-Circuited Then Turned Off During Press Conference

Does anyone have a Draymond charger?

Despite the loss of Steph Curry due to injury, the Golden State Warriors haven't stopped playing like the Golden State Warriors. Curry's the presumptive NBA MVP and arguably the best player alive, but he's hardly the lone superstar on the team. By necessity, Draymond Green, the Warriors' top energy/leader/keep-it-moving-guy, has taken the reins lately. 

In Curry's absence, Green, playing as a de facto point forward, has claimed the alpha dog role, scoring 17 points and pitching in 14 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 blocks in Tuesday night's Western Conference semifinal matchup. He's keeping the ball warm for Curry.

Which is why there was legitimate cause for concern on last night when Green, as seen above, completely lost power for a  more than few seconds during his podium appearance after beating the Portland Trail Blazers 110-99 at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. (Seriously, watch the above video.)

Green went from smiling ...

To inexplicably frozen.

Ah, there we go. Teammate Festus Ezeli came through with the Geek Squad service and mentioned Green by name to unfreeze him. Apparently the only way to reboot Green is to input the code "Draymond" into his ear.

Hopefully, Green gives himself a hard restart this week. The Warriors will take their 2-0 series lead to Portland on Saturday night, presumably with a healthy-enough Steph Curry in tow.
