It extends to private conversations – like one with Clippers rookie Branden Dawson, a former Michigan State teammate.
Green struck once it appeared DeAndre Jordan would sign with the Mavericks.
Dawson, via The Beast 980:
When they found out that DeAndre was supposedly leaving, Draymond texts us, he texts in a group message, he said, we’re done. Draymond Green, he’s a trash talker. He’s always going to talk trash, no matter what. I just put, “LOL. We’ll see.”
Green was right. The Clippers would have been done without Jordan – at least for a year. Capped out and with no way to replace their star center, they almost certainly would’ve taken a step back.
And neither are the Warriors, who look even better so far this season after winning last year’s championship.
That’s what makes this rivalry – including tonight’s game – so fun.
