Just in time for the final Warriors-Clippers regular season game, Draymond Green has unveiled a line of “Cool Story, Glenn” shirts in his official online shop. Green used the phrase numerous times in an interview with KNBR two weeks ago when the player responded to sarcastic comments made by Doc Rivers by referring to the Clippers coach’s given name. “I approved it,” Green said Friday, the morning after the release of the line of “Cool Story, Glenn” shirts on Athlete Originals that includes three different designs. “A lot of fans kept asking me for it, so the person who runs my store thought that it would be a good idea. “They sent me the design. I approved.” Green’s “Cool Story, Glenn” gear cost $45 for hoodies and $25 for T shirts. Green said that the recent back-and-forth exchange with the division rival coach Rivers was something that was fun for him. Contra Costa Times

“It’s not for a lack of respect,” Green said. “I respect him. It’s fun. Throughout the course of the season, you find things that’s funny. You have to. It’s just fun. It’s no disrespect.” The tit for tat was touched off by the Clippers’ Dahntay Jones bumping into Green on the court during his nationally televised postgame interview March 8 after the Warriors forward had led his team with 23 points in a 106-98 win at Oracle Arena.

"I'm enjoying the whole process of these last (few) games, just trying to win games," he said. "That's what I've been doing since Dwight has been out. I don't really keep track of the other (MVP candidates) or what they're doing. Obviously everybody knows that Russ is going on a triple-double rally. He's playing extremely well and they're fighting for the eighth spot. But all those guys you named (Curry, Westbrook, James, Davis and Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers) are very good players, or very talented players. For me, I just focus on what I can control and going out there and doing the best I can do every single right." USA Today Sports

Guard Nate Robinson sat out Wednesday’s game at New York with a sore left knee, his second 10-day contract expires today (Thursday) and he will not be re-signed just yet because of the injury, a league spokesman said. The spokesman said the Clippers will see how Robinson’s knee is recovering before making a decision on whether to bring him back for the rest of the season. Robinson averaged 5.1 points and 2.2 assists in nine games for the Clippers. He shot just 33.3 percent from the field while averaging 14 minutes per game. Los Angeles Daily News

Asked if he was concerned his current injury might end his season, Crawford said, “No, I'm not worried. I believe I’ll be fine.” Crawford sustained the injury March 2 when a Minnesota Timberwolves player bumped into him. He has resumed shooting and remained confident he would gain more progress soon, even though Clippers Coach Doc Rivers recently described Crawford as “idling” in his comeback. “It’s just a slow process because this is a sensitive area,” said Crawford, who has had his calf drained to promote healing. “This is probably the weirdest [injury] because you just don’t see it happen in basketball.” Los Angeles Times

Jordan had a monster outing, finishing with 14 points (7-of-7 shooting), 10 rebounds and five blocks. He scored most of his points on rim-rattling dunks as the Knicks let him get behind the defense for a series of alley-oops. Asked if he’d consider joining a Knicks team despite its current 14-58 record, Jordan said: “I love New York City. I love the city. But right now I’m not thinking of free agency. I’m thinking about finishing our season off strong and focusing on the playoffs.’’ New York Post
