Encouraged, Klay Thompson walked into the locker room, where he was greeted by the staff. Walking in and high five, he yelled, “Stupid fans saying all that shit.”

Players were furious at the “F*** you, Draymond” chant that began flooding the TD Garden in Game 3, and this behavior continued into Game 4.

Sources told Sportzshala Sports that in the dressing room, several players joked: [the] code of Conduct.”

Sources said it was even discussed among some players that NBA Commissioner Adam Silver praised the behavior of Celtics fans when asked about obscenity towards Green, stating, “I love the Boston fan energy that’s brought to the game.”

“I want the fans to have fun,” Silver said. Peter Eliopoulos of WCVB. “Of course from the league office you want this to be done with respect for all involved, but I understand.”

This pivotal Game 4 victory for the Warriors turned the streak upside down, and the Celtics and their fan base never recovered from the collapse. Golden State ended a three-game winning streak on Thursday night to become their fourth champion in eight years.

The Warriors players were celebrating in the locker room and, amidst the noise, began reciting the familiar chant: “Fuck you, Draymond. Fuck you, Draymond.

Green had not yet joined his teammates in the dressing room during the chant, which showed how much his team objected to the way he was treated.

The former Defensive Player of the Year was a force on both sides of the ball in Game 6 103-90 for a decisive victory. He had 12 points, 12 rebounds, eight assists, two steals, two blocks and was 2 of 5 from three.

Boston took a 14-2 lead but were outplayed from there and the crowd was completely out of the game, aside from a few premature mini-runs in the second half.

Actually, there was no “fuck you, Draymond” tonight.

“Game 3 just took me by surprise,” Green said of the chant. “It’s like you heard the crowd booing, and I’ve never heard the whole crowd yelling, ‘Fuck you, Draymond.’ It was different. And then you pair it with a so-so game and it’s like, uh, man. … For me, I said that there is no better time than to put it together tonight. I don’t think I heard “fuck you Draymond” all night. They couldn’t. So, you know, it’s easy to chant “F*** you” when someone has a bad game, but can’t you do it when they have a great game? I didn’t hear much of it tonight. Maybe I’ve just been so locked up.”

One of Green’s harshest critics is his mother, Mary Babers. She saw how her son handled the chants and challenged him to find a way to get through it and dominate.

“I think he handled it very well and handled [it] better than most people, but it still affected him. It had a big impact on him,” Babers told Sportzshala Sports. “I think he lost a little confidence in himself. As an athlete, you will never experience this. Sure, there are five to seven haters in the gym, not 20,000. But the way he came back was amazing. I told him to set it all up and he did. You know, they say revenge is a dish best served cold. He responded like a true champion.”

After celebrating in the locker room with a splash of champagne, the players went to several TV interviews with various on-court networks.

Stephen Curry, recently awarded Finals MVP, was in high demand as usual. He had many stops to make before his night was over. Each network had to be patient while he made his rounds.

But the nets weren’t the only ones waiting.

Former US President Barack Obama called to congratulate Curry, but the sniper was still giving an interview and could not answer the phone.

The two eventually bonded.

Green, Curry, Thompson and head coach Steve Kerr are the core responsible for creating this dynasty. The way everyone has supported each other over the years is rare to see in professional sports.

From Thompson’s grueling two-year hiatus, to Curry’s injuries over the past few years, the fall of the organization, and the defense of their brother Green in Boston, this is an exemplary franchise that will go down in history as the one that designed and developed the revolutionary game. basic.

Green is often ridiculed for how outspoken he is, which is one of the only reasons Celtics fans annoy him.

But Green had the last word, and it was the most impressive statement.

“It has not yet been proven that when we are united, no one can stop it,” he said.
