You already know that Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green was pumped up about the fight that took place Saturday night between Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul, and Los Angeles Lakers guard Rajon Rondo and small forward Brandon Ingram.
But in case you needed confirmation, Green gave it to you via his Instagram story.

This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Draymond Green loves confrontation. He feeds off of it. The three-time NBA champion has a knack of getting into opposing players’ heads, and he’s one of the more physical players in the league.
Last season, Draymond Green and Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal were involved in a serious fight at Oracle Arena. Green’s jersey was actually torn by Beal while they were scuffling and, when he emerged from the fight, his lower lip was bloody. So yeah, Draymond Green loves this type of stuff.
Chris Paul and Rajon Rondo are two of the fiercest competitors to have ever played the game. They also hate each other, so the fight that took place at Staples Center was on a personal level.
Rondo allegedly spat in Paul’s face, which prompted CP3 to put his finger in Rondo’s eye. All hell broke loose after that, and Draymond Green enjoyed it.
