VIDEO: Klay Thompson Mocks LeBron James For Getting Into It With Draymond Green
By now everyone has seen the LeBron James and Draymond Green incident in Game 4 which triggered a review and suspension by the league. Green will miss Game 5 and James was also issued a technical foul for taunting him.
On Sunday’s media availability in Oakland, Klay Thompson was asked about the incident and what he saw. He spoke about how the two got tangled up, and then proceeded to take a shot at LeBron.
“I saw them barking at each other. But guys talk trash in this league all the time,” said Thompson. “I’m just kind of shocked some guys take it so personal. It’s like — it’s a man’s league. I’ve heard a lot of bad things on that court, but at the end of the day, it stays on the court. We’re all competitive people. Trash talk is a part of the game of basketball. It’s a part of any sport, especially this competitive.
“Obviously people have feelings. People’s feelings get hurt if they’re called a bad word. I guess his feelings just got hurt.”

One would think that this has the potential to light a fire under LeBron and the Cavs heading into a do-or-die Game 5 on Monday night. The Warriors have dominated in most aspects of the game so far and Cleveland will need to play at it’s absolute best if they want to force a Game 6 back in Cleveland.
