“They just talking,” Green said.
The Warriors forward has become the NBA’s top heel. And like any good heel, he doesn’t get upset by the crowd responding harshly. That’s practically invited with the experience.
Green certainly set up Boston fans to loathe him. Beyond his years of brashness, he downplayed the Celtics’ Game 1 win in the NBA Finals then willed Golden State to victory in Game 2. He also got into a skirmish with Jaylen Brown and trash-talked Grant Williams in the process.
Though Green didn’t object to the profane chants, a couple other Warriors took issue:
"Classy. Very classy."

Steve Kerr: “Classy. Very classy.”
Klay Thompson: “We’ve played in front of rude people before. Dropping f-bombs with children in the crowd. Real classy. Good job, Boston.”
Unfortunately for Kerr and Thompson, Green built a glass house for the Warriors to cast these stones from.
