Draymond Green had something to say after the Portland Warriors game. But not just about clinching a playoff spot for the Warriors and making his ninth career appearance.
Green saw what many NBA fans and players had seen just hours before: Minnesota Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert punched teammate Kyle Anderson in the chest during a heated argument on the sidelines, all captured by television cameras.
Gobert was ruled out for the remainder of the Timberwolves’ playoff seeding deciding game against the New Orleans Pelicans and reportedly sent home.
“Insecurity is always loud…” Green tweeted from his account.
Commentators on social media were quick to point out that Green was mocking a Tweet Gobert sent after Green punched Jordan Poole during a Warriors prep practice in October.
“Insecurity is always loud,” Gobert tweeted on Oct. 7, the day a video of Green’s punch was leaked.
Green was fined and took a leave of absence from the team following his altercation with Poole. The Timberwolves defeated the Pelicans on Sunday to secure the eighth seed, where they face the Los Angeles Lakers in the play-in tournament.
Gobert’s status for the game is unknown. The six-foot center and defensive player of the year was traded from Utah to Minnesota in the off-season.
“We’ll talk about it and move on,” Minnesota security guard Mike Conley told reporters. “We are grown men.”
