Richard Jefferson to Draymond: Warriors Beat a Bunch of Hurt Teams to Win Title
Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green criticized the level of competition the Cleveland Cavaliers have faced over in the Eastern Conference and wished teams would try harder against them.
“I thought teams would compete a little harder,” Green told Anthony Slater of the Bay Area News Group. “I just watched San Antonio-(Houston). I like to watch good basketball. When you watch Cleveland play, you only watching one side of good basketball. That’s kind of weak. I like watching a good game, not even necessarily that it’s going to be a close game. I like to watch teams playing good basketball. When you watch them, you watch one team playing good basketball and everybody else just…do something. I don’t know what that something is.”
Cleveland Cavs’ Richard Jefferson got wind of those comments and responded by basically saying the Warriors faced hurt teams in route to their first championship.
