The Phoenix Suns fans called out Draymond Green for claiming the team wasn't good enough for Devin Booker. Last year, the 3x NBA champion claimed that Book should leave Arizona if he wanted to be successful. 

These comments took place last season while Book tried to lead the Suns to the playoffs in the Orlando bubble, showing a sneak peek of what was coming for the Suns in this campaign (0:41). 

Via Redditor "GuyCarbonneauGOAT":

"It's great to see Book playing well and Phoenix playing well, but get my man out of Phoenix," Green told hosts Ernie Johnson, Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley on "Inside the NBA." "It's not good for him. It's not good for his career. Sorry, Chuck. But they gotta get Book out of Phoenix. I need my man somewhere he can play great basketball all the time and win because he's that type of player."

When Johnson asked if he was tampering, Green offered a one-word response.

"Maybe," Green said.

Besides getting fined by the league for those comments, Draymond earned the Suns' fans' hate. They didn't forget what he said. After the Suns eliminated the defending champions Los Angeles Lakers in the first round of the postseason, many fans called out Green for his past comments. 

He didn't back down to any of that, though, firing back at those fans, saying he played a role in the Suns getting help for Booker. 

That help came in the form of Chris Paul, who took this team to the 2nd seed in the Western Conference, getting a big win over the defending champions in the playoffs. 

This is classic Draymond, and fans love to see it.
