Houston Texans owner Bob McNair is under fire for comments he made at the NFL owners meeting regarding recent player protests in the league.

While the league and its owners were trying to best approach social justice reform in the NFL, McNair said during the session: “We can’t have inmates running the prison.”

One particular player, wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins couldn’t be persuaded to stay and left the facility.

Other players around the NFL have spoken out against McNair’s choice of words and Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green did, too.

Taking to Instagram to address McNair’s comments, Green said: “It sure does sound very Donald Sterling-esque,” referring to the former Clippers owner whose repeated use of racial slurs prompted the Association to force him to sell the team and had him a lifetime banishment from the NBA.

Green was asked about his post at the Warriors’ shootaround Friday, prior to their meeting against the Wizards.

The reigning Defensive Player of the Year reiterated that McNair’s comments were “unacceptable:”

Hours later, Green felt something else was unacceptable: the way Washington guard Bradley Beal smacked him in the face late in the first half of the matchup.
