The Warriors-Cavaliers insults get juicer by the championship.
As the two teams trade off NBA championships — with the Warriors winning their third title last week in four-straight Finals matchups — the celebratory parade has become a gold mine of opportunities for the players to take their shots at one another.
This year, Golden State took full advantage.
Draymond Green continued the T-shirt war with LeBron James, sporting a black shirt mocking a well-known Instagram meme that James had posted earlier in the season.
The infamous “Arthur” fist was given a makeover on Green’s shirt to show three Warriors championship rings above the same caption that James used for his post: “mood.”
The LeBron trolling didn’t stop there.
The Alameda County Sheriff’s Office posted a photo from the parade of a police vehicle bearing an enlarged cut-out of a sobbing James, smacked on the car’s front grille as it made its way through downtown Oakland.
In 2016, James started the friendly fire with an “ultimate warrior” T-shirt for Cleveland’s celebratory parade. And who could forget the spooky “3-1 lead” decorations at James’ Halloween costume party?
James’ jabs clearly still resonated with the Warriors, as he found himself as the central target for Tuesday’s parade.
