Draymond Green vs. Paul Pierce

 

Golden State Warriors antagonist Draymond Green is at it again. During Thursday night's Warriors win over the LA Clippers, Green's trash talk, directed at Clippers veteran Paul Pierce, was picked up by the TNT microphones.

Pierce is in the final year of what has been a 19-year NBA career. He won a championship with the Boston Celtics in 2008. He was an outspoken critic this past summer when Kevin Durant left Oklahoma City to join the Warriors, forming a super team. Green hasn't forgotten, so while lining up for a free-throw in the first minute of the game, Green took a jab at Pierce.

"Chasing that farewell tour...they don't love you like that," Green was heard to say, "They don't give you no farewell tour...they don't love you like that...You thought you was Kobe."

Green, referring to Kobe Bryant, who in his last season, a year ago, was warmly welcomed in his final game at visiting arenas.

On Friday, Pierce used Twitter to respond---jabbing Green and the Warriors for becoming the first team in NBA history to blow a 3-1 series lead in the Finals, when the Cavs rallied to win the title. Others chimed in on the Green vs. Pierce battle below. Check it out below.
