I guess it’s safe to say Draymond Green and Paul Pierce don’t like each other.
Early in the Warriors-Clippers game in Oakland on Thursday night, Green brutally (and loudly) talks trash to Pierce and it was heard, probably over there in Mars.
“Chasing that farewell tour, they don’t love you like that. You can’t get no farewell tour. They don’t love you like that … You thought you was Kobe.”
Ouch, that’s so cold. Green is referring to the season-long farewell tour that Kobe Bryant got last year. In September, Pierce announced that he plans to retire after this season.
Pierce said that Durant’s generation is different and said, “I don’t think they are as hungry or competitive as my generation was.” Part of Green’s response was, “Like Pierce today, like, dude nobody cares what you did or who you did it for.”
And yes, he did took to Twitter to counter-mock Green (and the Warriors):
