But it was the reaction of Draymond Green, who used to play with Kevin Durant for the Golden State Warriors, which may have been the most entertaining.

Acrimony between Green and Durant was no secret during their time as teammates by the Bay, a three-year stint in which the Warriors went to three straight NBA Finals, winning two.
