It’s no secret that the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers are not fond of each other, so it’s no surprise that things heated up when the two teams faced off Thursday night.
Paul Pierce is retiring after this season, and Draymond Green wasted no time going in on the future Hall of Famer. Early in the first quarter, Green made it clear to Pierce that he isn’t on Kobe Bryant’s level.
Draymond just straight-up trashed Paul Pierce. “You can’t get no farewell tour, they don’t love you like that…You thought you was Kobe?” pic.twitter.com/SC0A0vxLTo
