When Draymond Green Called Out Paul Pierce: "Chasing That Farewell Tour, They Don't Love You Like That! You Thought You Was Kobe?"

When Draymond Green Called Out Paul Pierce: "Chasing That Farewell Tour, They Don't Love You Like That! You Thought You Was Kobe?"

Draymond Green is a master of the art of trash-talking in the heat of the court. On and off the court, he's been known to express his views without any filters. Yet, Green was instrumental in the franchise's success. 

In their heyday, they were victorious. Draymond goes to significant measures to secure his team's success, even if it means getting into the head of the opponent.

Paul Pierce is an underrated player when it comes to his trash-talking. There is no denying that the most famous example of Pierce doing this occurred when, moments before launching an off-balance 3-pointer, Pierce told Al Harrington he really could not defend him.

In all likelihood, an encounter between Draymond Green and Paul Pierce on the NBA court could quickly devolve into a verbal brawl between the two players. Well, this happened at the Clippers-Warriors game from 2016-2017. 

Golden State Warriors vs. Los Angeles Clippers was one of four matches during the 2016-17 season between the two teams at Oracle Arena. Even before the game got past one minute mark, Paul Pierce and Draymond Green got into a spat while Green was sitting on the bench.

 While Pierce was trying to hype up Blake Griffin after he fouled Draymond, Draymond yelled out,

“Keep chasing that farewell tour! They don’t love you like that! You thought you was Kobe?!”

Draymond Green is undoubtedly one of the NBA's most vocal players, often taking potshots at other players when it comes to his views. However, when it comes to purposefully trash-talking other players on the court, he has practically no remorse.

On the court, trash-talking happens all the time. The Golden State Warriors star trash-talked Pierce as he was nearing the end of his career.

As fans mocked Pierce on social media, the Celtics icon would reveal that he could not hear Draymond Green's heckles.
