Draymond Green interrupts Stephen Curry to diss the Clippers

Before, LA was home to just one team in the NBA, the Los Angeles Lakers. Show Time was running the show in LA. However, in 1984, LA had to make space. The Clippers came in from San Diego. Since then, Lakers fans have held a grudge against them. And now, Green backed up his close friend, LeBron James’ team. During the ESPYs, he took a shot at the Klaw and the Clippers.

As one of the most ruthless trash talkers, the four-time champion didn’t hold back. Interrupting Stephen Curry, he said: “I’m live in LA, home of seven professional teams. And the Clippers.” Likewise, the crowd was in splits. But the Clippers aren’t going to be playing around for long.
