March Madness is in full swing, which means basketball fans’ attention is equally divided between the NBA and the NCAA tournament. With the playoffs less than a month away, NBA players are hustling harder than ever to get a shot at winning the Larry O’Brien trophy. On the other hand, the recently qualified college teams are all set for their matchup in the Sweet 16. As Michigan State takes one step closer to the final showdown, NBA star Draymond Green gloated in front of his TV, while trolling other basketball stars.

Among the teams that made it to the Sweet 16 were Michigan State Spartans, who defeated Marquette Golden Eagles at their Sunday night face-off. Joining them on the list are the Gonzaga Bulldogs, who claimed victory over the TCU Horned Frogs, courtesy of their star forward Drew Timme. While it was a fair win, Draymond Green took his time to give his take on TCU’s game outcome.

Having once played for the Michigan State Spartans himself, Draymond Green celebrated his former team’s victory from his home. Shortly after the Spartans won, the 4x NBA champion shared the live telecast of the game on his Instagram stories and gave a shoutout to the team. He also ended up trolling Dwyane Wade and former teammate Juan Toscano-Anderson.

However, upon seeing Eagles player Kameron Jones shedding tears on his way out of the court, Green ended up trolling Marquette alumnus Dwyane Wade and Juan-Toscano Anderson. “Uh-oh! Oh don’t cry. Oh don’t cry. Tell them Juan-T, don’t cry. D-Wade you gotta tell him man, don’t cry.”

Money Green also tagged the two NBA stars in his story, along with wine glass emojis, to further taunt them. The Warriors forward was also heard saying, “You know what time it is. Come on man, that’s greatness. Spartan dawgs…”

After defeating Marquette by 69-60, the Spartans will face the Kansas State Wildcats in their upcoming Sweet 16 game set to take place on March 23.

His reason was that Cork’s hesitation to make the dunk in the last two seconds changed the game entirely. He concluded his tweet by writing ‘TCU should win this game’.
