Draymond Green: I don't pay much attention to anybody in Cleveland

Posted June 12, 2017

Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant squashed a report that Draymond Green called him from the parking lot of Oracle Arena after Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals, dubbing it "100 percent false", according to Jeff Zilgitt of USA Today.

As the Golden State Warriors forward prepared to leave the court, he goaded the crowd to reign boos upon him.

Rather than it being Green's second technical foul - as it was listed on the stat sheet, and had been told to all of Quicken Loans Arena by the public address announcer - the officials huddled and determined that it was, in fact, his first. The Warriors lead the Cavaliers 3-1 in the series.

Late in Game 4 past year, Green swiped at LeBron James' groin and was subsequently given a flagrant foul. "I didn't even get in anybody's face and I've been getting techs".

The odd part is that nobody ever bothered clarifying the foul until after Green picked his up for real in the third quarter. Draymond Green needs to play in this Game 5.

Myers chose to stay with Green as he sat out that game last June.

"I thought they called it on Draymond". And look, he hasn't lost any of the intensity and he hasn't lost his edge. I want to see how it feels to win at home.

"I don't pay much attention to anybody in Cleveland".

The officials acknowledged after the game they did not handle the situation very well.

He also has no problem taking on opposing fans, happily embracing the role of the player everyone loves to hate - so long as they aren't fans of the Warriors. We obviously know you can't just go home and expect to win. "They don't just lay down and die", Durant said. It shows me how important I am to them.

But that was in Cleveland.

"He knows he's got to keep his composure", said teammate David West, who believed assistant coach Mike Brown helped settle Green late in Game 4.

So what happened? Apparently the first technical was actually on Steve Kerr. "Thank God I get to play in Game 5". "It's never one thing". But of course people will compare and say a team from Year XYZ is superior to a team from Year ABC. But he's learned how to focus that intensity.

After the game, Dray went full Joakim Noah, taking a shot at the city of Cleveland.

"We'll bounce back", Green said.
