Verbal sparring runs in Green’s family, and his bravado is welcome on a team full of quiet, confident types like Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Andre Iguodala. “He talks shit to everybody,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “He’s talking to us, himself, the coach, the other bench,” Thompson said. “If you’re having a conversation about potato chips, then he’s going to make sure his opinion [is] heard,” Iguodala added.

“They have a cocky arrogance, like they’ve won something, and they haven’t done nothing,” Green said. “They pretty much been to the same spot in the playoffs we’ve been to. But they have this cockiness like you’re supposed to bow down to them. They ain’t proved nothing. They ain’t earned nothing. What respect have you earned?” But couldn’t any Clippers player say the same thing about Green? “I wouldn’t say that, because I don’t expect anybody to bow down to me,” Green said. “Nor do I expect you to respect me. I’m going to earn your respect. When it’s all said and done, you’ll respect me and our team.” Grantland

Not 48 hours after the shirts went on sale, Green put an end to it and reiterated that he had “the utmost respect” for Rivers. “A former player, he’s one of the guys who paved the way for me,” Green said. “So I respect all former players. And he’s a champion. He’s proved over the course of time his worth. “I took the shirts down because I know at the end of the day it’s all fun and games. With doing the T-shirt line, if something catches, you use it. But I just knew people would try to make it out to be more than it really is, so I took it down. People try to make it as if I don’t respect Doc.” San Jose Mercury-News

Warriors forward Draymond Green might not play Tuesday in the team's final regular-season meeting with the Los Angeles Clippers because of what he said was inflammation in his shins. The soreness combined with the fact that the Warriors have already clinched the top seed in the Western Conference with nine games left led to Green's being listed as questionable with the minor issue.
