The feud between Draymond Green and LeBron James goes back to their Warriors vs Cavaliers days. The two shared enough court time against one another to develop a healthy rivalry and give the NBA many heated moments. To this day, they keep coming at one another.

However, the dynamics have since changed and the two seldom face one another in a crucial game. But the healthy banter between them is still well alive. Remember the game when an altercation between Dwight Howard & Draymond forced an injection on the latter’s name? It was Bron enjoying the whole episode from the bench.

Draymond Green now has a name for LeBron James

Recently, a fan account posted a collage of Draymond Green’s statline from the last season. It mostly showed how Dray has toned down on offensive scoring and gained playmaking ability. With that, the account manager used hashtag #washedking to define the new Dray. 

Upon coming across that post, the Warriors veteran reposted it in his story and tagged Bron. Revealing his interest in joining a Bron team, he wrote, “King James the washed king but I’m somewhere on the all washed team too”

That’s some wisdom talking as Dray at least confessed that he deserves to be a member of an All-Washed team.

This past season, Draymond Green enjoyed a career-high in assists (8.9) just as Bron achieved in 2019-20 with his 10.2 apg. Looks like they’ve both diluted their offensive efficiency and settled for a more generous role in the team. Does this mean getting washed out? Maybe. But their one-on-one against each other in the play-in looked the opposite of that.

Remember how Draymond stopped Bron from scoring a layup by potentially hitting him in the face? The critics rejected The Akron Hammer’s reaction to that block attempt as a mere act to gain a free throw.
