Draymond Green, as he is wont to do, made the Golden State Warriors championship parade on Thursday quite the spectacle.
Green showed up wearing a shirt that read “Quickie,” an apparent jab at the Cleveland Cavaliers for the short-lived, five-game Finals with a reference to their home arena, Quicken Loans Arena.
The shirt began a social-media war, with James responding on Instagram, “That’s what she said, HUH?!?!?”
The NBA began taking sides, as James’ Cavs teammates and stars like James Harden and Russell Westbrook “liked” the Instagram.
Green then responded with an Instagram of his own, taking a screenshot of a video James took of himself with a shaved head in the gym. Green quipped that the Warriors finally made LeBron go bald.
Green didn’t stop there, however. Speaking from the parade ceremony later on Thursday, he then mocked James’ postgame comments after Game 5 when he said that he never played on a “super-team,” i.e. a team stacked with All-Star players.
“‘I never played on a super-team,'” Green said, quoting James. “You started the super-team, bro!”
James, of course, left the Cavaliers in 2010 to sign with the Miami and form an All-Star trio with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.
Green then turned to Kevin Durant and said, “We appreciate you joining the super-team”
“‘I never played on a super-team.’ That’s crazy,” Green said.
While James and Green appear to have a good relationship off the court, and James seemed to be fine with Green’s sartorial trolling — James did, after all, provoke it with a shirt of his own last year and a 3-1-themed Halloween party — he may not take so kindly to Green’s latest verbal assault.
