"Just good basketball conversation". Emotion and trash talk are part of his game, along with rebounding and defense, and the Warriors say they prosper when Green is stoking their fire. Also in the third, LeBron James and Kevin Durant exchanged words during a stoppage in play (officials were reviewing a foul on Kevin Love that was upgraded to a flagrant-one when video showed Love whacked Durant in the head).
Draymond, do you hear the crowd here in Cleveland chanting your name the last few games?
That being said, I believe that any fan who takes a step back and watches this game from a completely unbiased perspective will come to the conclusion that Game 4 was one of the most poorly officiated games in Finals history. "But he knows that".
A Willowick ice cream shop is using its sign out front to troll Warriors star player Draymond Green.
"Well, they boo me and they thought I had a tech that I didn't have, so that wasn't sharp", he pointed out.
There is nothing unusual about Draymond Green getting whistled for a technical foul.
On Monday night, the Warriors will once more attempt to close out their second championship of coach Steve Kerr's tenure - this time with the fiery Green on the court to start Game 5. They hit all those 3s and we never felt we were out of the game. If he truly had two, he'd be at five - two away from the automatic suspension that's triggered by the seventh technical of the playoffs. "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". "Thank God I get to play". It's why Green had no problem letting everyone know inside Quicken Loans Arena now how he felt during the game, and why he had no problem explaining that to the media afterward.
Even though he scored 16 points in Game 4, his most in these Finals, it took him 16 shots to get there - more shots than either Stephen Curry or Klay Thompson.
For Green, nothing would be more satisfying to win in Cleveland again.
How much do you expect the 3-1 chatter the next few days?
