What goes around, comes around. Former Michigan State basketball star Draymond Green donated $3.1 million to his alma mater's athletic department in September. On Saturday, the Spartans rewarded him, in a roundabout way, with two cases of "good vino."
Green, now a member of the Golden State Warriors, bet NBA superstar and noted Ohio State fan LeBron James a couple cases of wine on the outcome of Saturday's game between Michigan State and Ohio State. The Spartans helped out their own with a 17-14 victory at the Horseshoe and Green quickly took to Twitter to celebrate.
Vino Vino Vino Vino!!! #GoGREEN— Draymond Green (@Money23Green) November 22, 2015
The Spartan football players took notice of the bet and made sure LeBron was going to pay his debts before leaving the state of Ohio. Defensive end Shilique Calhoun brought up the bet in a post-game press conference. Others, like fellow defensive lineman Lawrence Thomas, reached out to Green on Twitter to let him know they had his back.
Green has got the better of James multiple times in 2015 now. His Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers in six games to win the NBA Championship in June. Green signed a five-year, $82 million deal after the series, which made that donation to Michigan State a little easier on the wallet. Green's current winning streak with Golden State is at 17 games, which is only a few shy of matching the 24 straight victories Ohio State had before Saturday night.
