Draymond Green has some experience trolling the Cavaliers at championship parades, but he took it to an extra level at the 2017 celebration.
The Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers have gone back and forth with the trolling at championship parades the last two years, but it looks like Draymond Green got the last laugh on Thursday.
Two years ago, Green had a video of his trash talk on the Cavaliers at the parade go viral with his infamous “Nope” rant. Last year, LeBron James countered by wearing an “Ultimate Warrior” t-shirt to the parade after conquering the 73-9 installment of the Golden State super team.
Now, Green decided to get a little more creative with the trolling. At the Warriors’ parade on Wednesday, he wore a shirt saying “Quickie” over a Larry O’Brien trophy, trolling both how quick the series went and the name of the Cavaliers’ arena, the Quicken Loans Arena.
The Warriors ended the series in just five games, so you could definitely classify the beatdown as a quickie for sure. You have to give major props to Green for getting a little more creative with his trolling, especially after the extreme lengths the Cavaliers went after the Warriors blew their 3-1 lead in the Finals last year.
Green apparently isn’t letting the team’s second win over the Cavaliers in just three years get to his head, as he was back in the gym working out just one day after the title victory. He averaged 11 points a game, with 10.2 rebounds and 4.8 assists, giving him an average of a double-double through the series.
Here’s hoping the Cavaliers somehow pull off a major upset next season over the Warriors in the 2018 NBA Finals, and we can see a rebuttal in another parade in Cleveland to Green’s new gear.
