"My thing is for our crowd to have the intensity that Cleveland's crowd had," she said. "Because you know once your crowd gets into the game it kind of motivates the guys into a different direction and peps them up a bit."

When asked how proud she is of Draymond and what he's accomplished, Babers-Green said, "I will never say I'm proud, but I will always say I'm happy for Dray because this is his dream and I'm just a part of this. So I'm just looking at him like - Dray this is something you always said you wanted to do, so just be like Nike and just do it."

Now it comes as no surprise to anyone watching this year's Finals - Draymond has had some foul trouble throughout the series. When asked if he can keep his emotions in check, his mom had this to say.

"I don't think it's about him keeping his emotions in check," she said. "If Dray does not be Dray, then who else do (sic) he be? You know what I'm saying, it's just be who you are, just play your game. First of all, this is his crowd now. So it won't be like that. You know what I'm saying? So just come in here, be that person who your team needs you to be, do what you have to do, and let's win this thing."
