That might not have been Green’s only purposeful move.
Sources told ESPN that Green, trying to use reverse psychology, intentionally and aggressively approached Durant with a bevy of choice words during a break in Saturday’s loss to the Sacramento Kings.
“F— you” obscenities were repeatedly tossed back and forth by both players, sources told ESPN. Durant was enraged. Sources said Green, knowing he had accomplished his goal, began winking and smiling at some of his teammates and coaching staff.
That’d be a heck of a tactic.
Know what else would be a great tactic? Leaking a story that distracts from an actual spat you want out of the harsh spotlight.
