In case you missed it the first time around, a crazy report came out a few days ago. The report alleged that a few weeks ago, at a post-ESPY’s party, the Cleveland Cavaliers Tristan Thompson confronted, and punched the Golden State Warriors Draymond Green.

It didn’t take long for Green to respond to the story, and he did so in typical Draymond fashion.

Taking to Instagram, Green seemed to refute the reports by saying, “I’ve enjoyed y’all stories and talk shows over the last couple days!!! Them joints inaccurate doe G!!! Aight, carry on my good people” followed by some laughter emojis.

Green then couldn’t resist taking a shot at the Cavs. Social media reports showed that some people in Cleveland were planning a parade in Thompson’s honor for punching Green, to which Draymond responded “They may want to cancel that parade too lol,” before adding, “Nah keep the parade that city won’t have any for a while... I forgot Bron left” with some shrugging emojis.

That’s some A+ trolling.

It appears that the truth lies somewhere between the original report, and Draymond refuting it. Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic reported some details, saying they were at a fancy dinner, not a bustling club, and that it wasn’t a punch so much as a shove. The article stresses that there was quick resolve, and that Green and Thompson were hanging out the rest of the night. It quotes a source as saying, “It was much ado about nothing.”

Naturally, though, a lot of people chimed in. Former NFL player Shannon Sharpe had a stance on TV, which NBA player Udonis Haslem responded to on social media.

I’m sure we’ll see a lot more takes flying in . . . it is the offseason, after all!
