If you thought the drama between Golden State Warriors’ Draymond Green and Boston Celtics’ Jaylen Brown was over, you thought wrong. After Game 2, Brown described Green’s antics as unnecessary and typical of Green.

At the end of the first half, Brown was fouled by Green shooting a three. Both fell to the floor, and Green seemed to escalate things by having his feet on top of Brown. The Celtics guard took exception and got up right away, while Green seemingly tried to pull down Brown’s pants.

It came as no surprise to anyone that he would have a few choice words back after some aggressive comments coming from the Celtics’ legend.

“I saw what Cedric Maxwell said,” Green responds after June 8’s practice.

“One thing that baffles me about the ’80s or the ’90s, or whenever you want to call it when basketball was so much more physical, is some of the guys that be talking weren’t the guys that were punching people. They act like guys were just walking around the court, like, I’m hitting this guy in the nose.

But everybody running around acting like they were that. Y’all were …read more
