The latest episode in the ongoing Warriors-Clippers drama continues to drag on, even as it runs out of steam.
Warriors forward Draymond Green on Tuesday night wasn't quite ready to kill it completely.
What began on Sunday with Dahntay Jones' imbecilic decision to bump Green on the court after the game escalated with Green's locker-room response, which covered Jones in a thick coat of irrelevance, has taken on a life of its own.
There was the NBA on Monday, slapping Jones with a $10,000 fine for the incident, after which Los Angeles coach Doc Rivers responded by sprinkling Green with sarcasm.
"Wow. That was such a violent bump," Rivers said, snickering, Monday afternoon. "I'm telling you. It was amazing. I told Dahntay, 'You've got to be careful. That was too hard.' I guess tough guy at Golden State . . . I think the bump was too hard for him, clearly, the way he reacted. My goodness. I thought that guy was tough."
Upon hearing the comments Tuesday on KNBR, Green responded by indicating the story is old news but also dropped the nickname "Doc" in favor of Rivers' first name.
"Cool story, bro. Cool story, Glenn. Very cool story, Glenn," Green told the radio station.
"I'm done with that situation, man, you know? We crossed 50 wins (Monday) night. In 62 games, that's a pretty incredible mark. So I enjoy playing with this team. It's a great team to play. It's great chemistry.
"I don't have no reason to worry about what Glenn has to say."
Truth be told, Green really does not have any reason to worry about what Rivers has to say.
