Draymond Green once again proved that he wouldn't be himself if he weren't the ultimate troll.
For Golden State Warriors fans and residents of the California Bay Area, Monday, June 12, was a day of celebration as the team took part in the Championship parade. The Warriors’ defeat of the Cleveland Cavaliers marks their third win in four years of competing against the Cavs in the NBA finals. The Warriors infamously blew a 3-1 lead in year two of meeting with the Ohio squad, where LeBron James took a stab at trolling Golden State by wearing an "Ultimate Warrior" shirt to Cleveland's parade. King James didn't know Green would have no other option than to return the favor for the second year in a row.
Earlier in the season, James posted the Arthur fist meme with the caption "mood," letting us all know he was ready for greatness once again. It seems Green found the perfect opportunity to reference his off-court friend and on-court rival's post in the form of his parade attire.
The shirt shows the Arthur fist wearing three rings referencing the three rings Green has gotten in the battle against LeBron. In 2017, Green trolled the Cavs by wearing a "Quickie" shirt spelled with the same style "Q" as the Cavaliers home court building, the Quicken Loans Arena.

LeBron wasn't the only Cavalier to get trolled. While trolling Bron was all in good fun, Green also found time to throw the whole shade tree at Tristan Thompson. The two got into altercations throughout the NBA Finals, and when it came time to shake hands with Thompson, Green hit him with the full-on Cardi B "if I see you and I don't speak..."
“We just cut from a different cloth. It’s a lot of guys in this league, they soft, we just cut from a different cloth ... After the game he tried to shake my hand, I said Tristan we ain’t cut the same.” pic.twitter.com/XYn5JHPRo5— Kristian Winfield (@Krisplashed) June 12, 2018
“We just cut from a different cloth," Green shrugged. "It’s a lot of guys in this league, they soft, we just cut from a different cloth ... After the game he tried to shake my hand, I said Tristan we ain’t cut the same.”
Well, alright then.Draymond Green was going for the title of Most Valuable Troll in the finals, and it looks like he won that too.
