Draymond Green at Warriors title parade: ‘F— everyone else’


Unlike in years past, the Warriors’ championship parade won’t end in a big rally with speeches at the end of the route. A little past 1:30 a.m. Monday, Draymond Green tweeted, “Nobody speaking at the parade? Yeah I think I’m going to stay at the crib.” 

Instead, today’s San Francisco parade started with a short presentation in front of a small crowd of fans on the Embarcadero. The presentation included introductions for support staff, too, like security staff, trainers and more. And then Green, hours after complaining about no speeches, took the mic briefly to make his thoughts known.

After a long, dramatic silence, Green said, “I’m trying to think of the most controversial thing I could say.”

“I don’t know what you want me to tell you,” he added. “That we’re better than everybody?… I’m just gonna continue to destroy people on Twitter and Instagram stories.”

In true Draymond fashion, he ended his comments with, “It’s always f—k everybody else. Thank you all!”

The parade kicks off at 11:20 a.m. on Market and Main streets in San Francisco, heading down Market until it concludes about a mile away on 8th Street. When the Warriors held championship parades in Oakland, the route ended at Lake Merritt, where players took to a temporary stage to give speeches and engage directly with fans. 

Green was, unsurprisingly, a highlight of this portion of the parade. In 2015, he took the mic and immediately warned fans (and his bosses) that he was “going to get controversial.” But mostly he made fun of coach Steve Kerr: “Every time I take a shot, he complains,” Green joked. “So that’s why you see, every time I make a shot, I look at him.” In 2017, Green used his speech time to take shots at LeBron James.

Of course, Green’s joke about staying home today may be related to the Warriors’ relentless party schedule since clinching the NBA title over the Celtics. On Thursday night, the team partied in Boston before flying back to the Bay Area, only to turn around and hit the clubs in Las Vegas
