The Golden State Warriors are just days removed from being crowned champions of the 2021-22 NBA season, and one rival player already wants a piece of them.
Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant exchanged some trash talk with Draymond Green on social media Saturday. It started when Morant issued a response to Klay Thompson calling out Grizzlies big man Jaren Jackson Jr. for something that Jackson had tweeted in the regular season. Morant felt that proved the Grizzlies are living rent free in Warriors players’ heads.
Green then got involved. He said the only real estate the Warriors care about is in Boston, where they just finished off the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. A fan then suggested that a Grizzlies-Warriors matchup on Christmas Day seems like a guarantee. Morant said he wants Memphis to host it.
