Draymond Green Says Clevelanders "Don't Seem To Be The Sharpest People Around"

Halfway through the third quarter, Green was assessed his second technical foul, which would have led to an automatic ejection in the midst of a 14-point game.

Then, in the third quarter, Green got called for a foul, and nearly immediately got another tech for his troubles, which most in the arena and on the broadcast (rightfully) assumed was the forward's second of the night, enough for an ejection.

Instead, Green's first technical foul was retracted, and was instead given to Warriors head coach Steve Kerr in a freaky moment in the third quarter.

Sam Amick, an National Basketball Association reporter for the USA Today, tweeted that the press information given to reporters had listed the foul was on Green in the first quarter.

"Yeah, they messed that one up bad", Green said. "So I knew I didn't have a technical foul, but still trying to figure out why did I get the second one".

After the Cavs won Game 4 in Cleveland Friday night, Green had something to say about Clevelanders: "I really don't pay that much attention - I don't pay much attention to anybody in Cleveland honestly".

For several minutes, however, the only people who seemed to know that in the entire arena were the three officials.

But Green stood stoically on the floor, then egged on the crowd to raise the decibel level of their jeers toward him.

Instead, he'd called it on Warriors Coach Steve Kerr.

The officials acknowledged after the game they did not handle the situation very well.

The official box score following each quarter is legitimate and yet they were able to change it during the game. After looking at the video, I did not verbalize to the table and looking at the video I should have done a better job of making sure that the table knew the technical foul was on Coach Kerr. The problem then worsened when the officials didn't catch the public address announcer saying it was called on Green. "The table informed us it was his second technical foul, and [that he was] ejected. With a coach or trainer, we just verbalize and at that time we should listen to the PA announcer to who it is on", Callahan said. Take a look at the full transcript of the interview with the officials below.

For a player who almost was thrown out of Game 4, Green seems to have a lot to say. Green isn't in danger of that - he isn't coming into the series with flagrant fouls committed in the previous series. They are at home thinking about me.

"Thank God I get to play in Game 5", Green said.
