Video: Warriors’ Draymond Green gets roasted by TNT crew for 3-1 blunder
Draymond Green was minding his own business on Thursday when he was hilariously reminded of the Golden State Warriors’ epic meltdown in the 2016 Finals.
Johnson, who was seated beside Green, was having a spirited discussion with Charles Barkley about how teams of the past have climbed back from a 3-1 deficit. The veteran TV analyst cited the Denver Nuggets’ triumph over the Utah Jazz in the first round.
“We just saw a team climb back from a 3-1,” Ernie told Chuck.
Green, who was the victim of the same scenario, interrupted and replied in jest, claiming that Johnson should “relax” with his statements. Here’s the hysterical video shared by TNT on social media.

Ernie Johnson quickly extended his hand to Green’s direction after realizing his slip of the tongue. The numbers “3-1,” of course, would always strike a nerve with Green and his Warriors teammates after they lost that commanding lead to the Cleveland Cavaliers four years ago.
The Dubs has since rebounded from that humiliation, winning back-to-back titles at the Cavs’ expense in 2017 and 2018. Still, that historical 3-1 defeat will always be stingy subject for Green for the rest of his career.
