In the middle of the third quarter in Game 4, when it appeared Green had collected his second technical of the game, which means an automatic ejection, Ray Charles' signature song, "Hit the Road Jack", began playing in the arena. The table informed us that it was his second technical foul and ejected [Green].
Green's history with Cavs fans goes back to previous year when he was suspended for Game 5 of the series for swiping at LeBron James' groin area after James stepped over him.
This is eerily familiar territory.
Game 4 of the NBA Finals was loaded with storylines. "No, I never look at something and say, 'Man, I shouldn't have said that, ' because I'm a lot smarter than people think".
Prior to Friday night, the Cavaliers had made 18 three-pointers thrice - against the Miami Heat, the Boston Celtics and the Warriors - and lost all three games.
"I don't pay that much attention to anybody in Cleveland, honestly", he said.
Green said he knew all along the first one wasn't on him.
"In the moment, I thought I had verbalized to the table that the technical foul was on coach Kerr", Goble told pool reporter Brian Mahoney of The Associated Press after the game.
On Friday, Green also took a verbal swipe at Cleveland fans ("they don't seem to be the sharpest people around"), said he was thrilled the Quicken Loans crowd chanted his name in derision ("they show me how important I am to them; they are at home thinking about me") and deftly outlined the Warriors' complaints about the officiating in Game 4 without being too obvious about it.
SAN FRANCISCO-It's about time the rather combustible Draymond Green showed up at the National Basketball Association final.
Mark Jackson, ABC analyst, during the game: "If you're DraymondGreen right now, you see his response".
The NBA released an interview transcript with two of the officials, Mike Callahan and John Goble, after the game. "But I thought I heard the announcer say, the P.A. announcer say, that it was on Draymond". I thought I deserved it.
Then when the questions ran out - and that nearly never happens in the NBA Finals, with such a high-profile player, after such a potential series turning point - Green stared at the cameras, shrugged, and suggested he could've handled dozens more. I expect us to come out with a level of focus that we have had this entire series, minus Game 4. Green sat in his auto in the parking lot and called Myers (the Warriors GM), telling him he had to sign Durant.
The reporter told Durant that he was asking to explore the notion that the Warriors wanted Durant to avenge their Finals collapse a year ago. I feel better than I've ever felt emotionally. "Thank God I get to play".
