Celtics great Cedric Maxwell and Golden State forward Draymond Green have started an entertaining beef as they go back and forth about what the game was like in the ’80s and ’90s.
Maxwell referred to the Warriors as “tuxedo players,” not wanting to be touched.
Golden State shook off their Game 1 loss to tie the series, but Maxwell was not impressed with the way Green chose to play. “I’m gonna be as clear as I can,” Maxwell told Gary Payton on Sunday. “That shit Draymond Green was doing, during the ’80s he would have got knocked the f— out.”
Draymond would then hit back with a fiery response that went super viral over guys back in the day talking about how tough it was to play back then.
“Some of the guys that be talking weren’t the guys that was punching people,” Green said. “There were a few guys back then that would lay you out, that would knock you out, that would foul you and get thrown out the game: Bill Laimbeer, Rick Mahorn. But everyone running around acting like they were that. Y’all were getting bullied.”
Not wanting to take a loss in the situation, Maxwell took the fued to a different level with his most recent comments.
“You keep saying nobody punched nobody. You ask Charles Barkley what happened when he and I got in a fight when I was in L.A. with the Clippers,” Maxwell said on NBC Sports Boston.
“Draymond wasn’t even born when I was playing. … Draymond, ask your daddy who I was.”
Game 3 is set for Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET at TD Garden.
