After winning the NBA final, Draymond Green did a lot of talkin’. He first went after the Celtics fans who spent the whole NBA Finals series trying to get into his head, and now he’s going with Ja Morant.
It all started with Klay Thompson saying he was motivated by a regular-season tweet from Jaren Jackson after Memphis beat Golden State. Jackson wrote “strength in numbers,” and Thompson said it sit well with him.
Morant replied to Thompson’s comments simply by saying “got a lot of real estate,” indicating that he thought the Grizzlies were in the head of the Warriors. Green didn’t like it, so he wrote back to Morant.
“We traded that real estate in Ja Morant the property value was higher in Boston,” Green tweeted.
The back and forth did not end there. When a fan suggested that the Grizzlies and Warriors play on Christmas, Morant initially suggested that they play in Memphis. However, Green stated that since the Warriors are the champions, they are the hosts. Morant seemed on board.
“I’m coming to you then. Tell em book dat s*** I’m on yo block,” Morant replied.
The Grizzlies and Warriors played six games in the Western Conference Semifinals which saw the Warriors advance to the Western Conference finals for the 6th time in eight years. Then moving on after beating the Dallas Mavericks in five games, and then beating the Celtics in six game to win their four championship in eight years.
