Draymond Green has never been one to stay out of the drama-filled limelight. And after Adam Silver announced yesterday that the NBA will no longer use the term "team owner," Green finds himself in the internet's crosshairs yet again.

Green was among the most vocal in moving the NBA toward banning the term owner, but his Twitter bio shows that he could have been a bit hypocritical.

The Golden State Warriors' forward states he is the "owner" of Performance Inspired Nutrition, a lifestyle nutrition company.

Those coming to the defense of Green note how he is saying he is the owner of a nutritional supplement company, not players. However, the same type of argument can be used on the other side. Joe Lacob is the owner, or now governor, of a sports organization called the Golden State Warriors.

Many forget that sports is indeed a business, despite simply being a game at its core. Lacob is no more an owner of Green as Green is an owner of the social media coordinator for his company.

Green has not responded to this reaction, nor has he updated his Twitter bio. Can't wait to see what happens when he finally does.
