Draymond Green’s Denial Of Tristan Thompson Scuffle Makes Me Think It Definitely Happened

Draymond Green and Tristan Thompson reportedly took their NBA Finals altercation into the offseason.

Overshadowed by J.R. Smith’s impression of a person who doesn’t know what basketball is, the big men got into it late in Game 1.

Green twisted the knife after the Warriors’ sweep of the Cavaliers.

Then again during Golden State’s championship parade.

According to The Athletic, Thompson retaliated at a LeBron James-hosted post-ESPYs party in the form of what one witness called a “face mush” and another called a “sucker punch” that was “more like a shove.” Other reports described the shot as more severe.

On Wednesday, Green addressed the story on Instagram, describing the reports as “inaccurate” and clowning Cleveland fans for their planned parade to commemorate the incident.

Sure, Draymond.

A loose translation of 15 cry-laughing emojis in such proximity: “I’m not even mad. You’re mad. I think it’s funny that everyone believes I got sonned.”

And to top it all off, he blamed his blatant insecurity over the reporting on his mom.

I didn’t know what to believe before, but Green’s whining about it on the internet has rendered me surer than I’ve ever been that the trash-talking nut-kicker got got, and did nothing about it.
