The Golden State Warriors clinched their fourth championship over the last eight seasons on Thursday night, defeating the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. The Warriors put on a show in Boston with an incredible performance on both ends of the floor. One player that ended up making a huge difference in the series was Draymond Green.
After the game, the Warriors forward went on a rant about life and basketball at the podium, leaving Kendrick Perkins in his wake.

“If you know the game of basketball, basketball will give you enough to talk about. The problem is all these people talking about basketball that don’t know basketball. So what do you do, you chase controversy. The new media, we don’t do that. That’s why you see JJ Redick flourish, that’s why you see CJ McCollum flourish, that’s why you see me flourishing… you got fools like Kendrick Perkins coming dressed like a clown, wearing a jail suit, then you leave the game early tonight. Stand on your word, bro. I’m going to stand on mine, four time champ, I’m out.”
When he was finished, he literally stood up and dropped the microphone.
It’s hard to argue with just about anything the Warriors’ star forward is saying after his performance in Game 6. Green finished with 12 points, 12 rebounds, eight assists, two steals and two blocks in the 103-90 victory. You know the saying, to the victor go the spoils. Well, he earned this moment.
