The other night, during the unfortunate overtime loss to the Sacramento Kings, Draymond Green and Kevin Durant got into a heated argument on the sideline.

Green and Durant are both proud players, and things weren’t exactly going great at that moment. You can see them go back and forth at one another, with Shaun Livingston, JaVale McGee, and eventually assistant coach Ron Adams all stepping in to keep the peace.
But, for real, no big deal. It’s not the first or last time Draymond has yelled at another teammate, and it’s not the first or last time Durant has stood up for himself. This is what happens when you play poorly, and this is how good teams get better. By talking out their differences. Clearing the air, no matter how publicly.
However, because this is Golden State, and because the players are both super-duper famous, things quickly got blown out of proportion across various media channels.
Eventually, Draymond responded on snapchat, throwing shade at Bleacher Report’s push notification he’d just received on his phone.
“Blah blah blah blah blah,” with an extra, hastily scrawled “Blah” and two arrows drawn in for good measure.
So, if you were wondering what Green thought about the argument, or what he thought about the ensuing media coverage, you now have your answer.
No big deal.
