The Warriors had the last laugh in the war of words with Boston fans.
After Golden State won its fourth title in eight years on Thursday in a 103-90 win against the Celtics, they started a “f–k you Draymond” chant in the locker room during champagne celebrations, according to several reporters who were at the scene.
The infamous chant was rained down from the TD Garden stands by Celtics fans early on in the 2022 NBA Finals. It was audible on the ABC broadcast at one point, and Green’s wife, Hazel Renee, ripped Boston fans after Game 3 for “chanting obscenities” about her husband in front of their kids.
The trolling, though, went beyond that, according to Steph Curry’s wife, Ayesha Curry, who revealed on her Instagram Story that “F–k you Draymond” pins were being handed out at TD Garden during Game 6. She also tagged Green’s wife in her post, which included another pin that read: “Ayesha Curry Can’t Cook.”
Celtics fans, and a local Boston bar, used the statement to troll the cookbook author throughout the series. After the Warriors’ Game 5 victory against the Celtics, Steph — who won his first Finals MVP on Thursday — wore a shirt that read, “Ayesha Curry Can Cook.”
The trolling didn’t end after the Warriors beat the Celtics in six games to win it all on Thursday. Green stayed at the podium, after recording a double-double in Game 6, to film his first-ever live championship podcast.
Green was criticized during the Finals for discussing the series on his podcast and hit back saying he’d still continue to record episodes and promised the Warriors would win it all.
The Dubs took over Game 6 with a 21-0 run in the first half. It was the longest unanswered run in the Finals in the last 50 years.
The team reportedly booked an event space at Encore Boston Harbor, a luxury resort and casino located in Everett, Mass., to celebrate.
