If there’s one thing Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green is known for, aside from being the second most important player on the squad after Stephen Curry, it’s that he likes to talk. The gregarious Green has given countless soundbites throughout his three-year NBA career. Whether saying the Cavs “suck” after the Warriors defeated them in the 2015 NBA Finals or referring to former NBA players dismissing the Warriors’ 73-won season as “ringless people who keep talking,” Green always has an opinion on something, and he’s happy to share it.
One of those opinions happens to be about LeBron James, whom he will face in the Finals for the second straight year (Game 1 begins tonight). It appears Green has been a LeBron hater since James left Cleveland for Miami in 2010, and some old tweets of Green’s have been unearthed to prove it. Here are few that still appear on Green’s timeline:
And heres a few that have since been deleted, including Green using a homosexual slur to reference LeBron.
Green was still in college at Michigan State when he let those tweets fly, so perhaps he can be forgiven. Still, they show how Green truly feels about LeBron James and the Cavs in general. This NBA Finals is shaping up to be a doozy.
