Draymond Green said posting a naughty photo on Snapchat was ‘clearly not what I was trying to do’

Draymond Green meant to keep a photo of his privates, um, private. But that’s not what ended up happening Sunday morning.

So the Team USA and Golden State Warriors star found himself apologizing later in the day for accidentally posting a photo of his penis on Snapchat.

"I apologize for the situation,” Green said before Team USA practice in Houston. “It's clearly not what I was trying to do."

The photo was live for about 10 minutes before being removed. At first, Green acted as if he’d been hacked.

But Green eventually admitted he did it himself — by accident, of course.

"It was a situation where it was meant to be a private message," Green said. "I kinda hit the wrong button and it sucks. It was meant to be private. We're all one click away from placing something in the wrong place, and I suffered from that this morning."

Earlier this summer, Green was suspended for Game 5 of the NBA Finals after a hit to the groin of Cleveland's LeBron James put him over the limit for flagrant fouls in the playoffs.

Last month Green was accused of striking a man in the face outside a restaurant near Michigan State. He avoided possible jail time by reaching a plea agreement to pay $500 for a noise violation and a $60 restitution fee.

But Green said Sunday he has too much good going on in his life for him to linger on the mishaps.

"To say I can't catch a break I think that's disrespectful for everybody," he said. "How many people get to live their dreams? I'm not going to sit here and throw myself a pity party and say I can't catch a break. I'm fine. I get to joke around with these guys all day and get to do what I love for my country. I'm fine. I'm fine."
