Charles Barkley decided to troll Draymond Green during warmups ahead of Game 2 between the Golden State Warriors and Dallas Mavericks.
The Golden State Warriors made their return to the playoffs for the first time since 2019, and they have made it all the way to the Western Conference Finals. They already got the Game 1 victory, and looked to increase their series lead to 2-0 with a Game 2 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Friday, May 20.
Prior to the game, Draymond Green was mic’d up during warmups and spoke with the ‘Inside the NBA’ crew. Charles Barkley decided to troll Green, asking him why he is practicing taking shots when he doesn’t during games. It led to an entertaining exchange, with Green asking Barkley why he is going after Warriors fans.
Warriors: Charles Barkley trolls Draymond Green ahead of Game 2
Barkley said that he is going to keep going at Golden State fans, to which Green replied that the fans have more rings than the former Phoenix Suns great has. Barkley said that while it may be true the fans “have to go back to their life.”
Of course, Barkley has been instigating the Warriors fanbase since the TNT crew arrived in San Francisco. From starting a “Let’s go Mavs” chant to dropping a NSFW insult towards hecklers.
The Warriors took Game 1 by the score of 112-87. Green recorded 10 points (4-for-6 from field), nine rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 29 minutes of playing time.
