Another championship parade, another custom-made shirt for Draymond Green.
Just four days after the Golden State Warriors clinched their third title in four years with a sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Golden State’s outspoken enforcer showed up to the championship festivities wearing a shirt with a not-so-subtle shot directed toward LeBron James.
The all-black shirt featured a clenched fist with three championship rings (2015, 2017, 2018) and the caption “mood…” under it — an ode to James’ Instagram post from November. In the post, James posted a picture of a clenched fist from the children’s cartoon, Arthur, with the same caption.
At last year’s parade, Green showed up wearing a “Quickie” shirt, with the letter “Q” written in the same font as Quicken Loans Arena — the home of the Cavs. Behind the text sat the Larry O’Brien Trophy.
Despite the occasional on-court flare ups and off-court jabs between the two, James and Green are friends. Don’t forget: James wore an “Ultimate Warrior” shirt after the Cavs stunned the Warriors in the 2016 Finals.
But while Green gets the award for best troll during Tuesday’s celebration, Warriors general manager Bob Myers had perhaps the funniest moment of the day.
When answering a question about his declaration that Kevin Durant can sign “whatever deal he wants,” Myers took a jab at the back-to-back Finals MVP.
“That was just for the media,” Myers joked. “He can’t have anything at all. … (Stephen Curry’s contract situation) was different. He’s been here from the way before days. He’s earned it.”
Durant, of course, joined the Warriors as a free agent in the summer of 2016, while Curry has been with the franchise since he was drafted in 2009.
