Draymond Green: ‘Man 3-1 sucks’

I expected Draymond Green to tweet something snarky.

His Warriors blew a 3-1 lead to the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals, and that inspired an avalanche of 3-1 jokes coming from Cleveland. Then, just a few months later, the Cleveland Indians blew a 3-1 lead to the Chicago Cubs in the World Series.

Green’s response:

That isn’t snarky, at least not at face value. That reads like Green is sympathizing with Cleveland, offering an olive branch of commiseration.

You can read an ulterior motive into the tweet. There might be an ulterior motive.

But if you’re inferring insult from Green’s tweet, it’s probably because of your preconceived opinion of him – not what he actually tweeted.
