The final day of the 2022-23 NBA regular season saw numerous viral moments play out. LeBron crowned himself as he secured a Lakers win while the loaded Mavs missed the playoffs entirely. However, the Timberwolves-Pelcians game produced not one, but two viral moments. While Jaden McDaniels punching a wall raised eyebrows, few moments were as talked about as the brawl that broke out on the Timberwolves' bench.
During a second-quarter time in their regular-season finale against the Pelicans, Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert was seen physically lashing out at teammate Kyle Anderson. According to a team spokesperson, the confrontation came about due to comments Anderson made about Gobert's performance. Team officials immediately removed Gobert from the game and reportedly went as far as to send him home. The story quickly went viral on social media, with one NBA in particular having some choice words for Gobert.
Draymond Green Has Perfect Response For Gobert
Draymond Green, who put up nine points in the Warriors' Play-In clinching win over the Trail Blazers, fired off a four-word tweet on Sunday evening. "Insecurity is always loud..." the tweet read, quickly garnering over 61,000 likes. A cryptic tweet on the surface, the message was a devastating shot at Gobert. In October 2022, TMZ released a video of Green fighting with teammate Jordan Poole at a Warriors practice. Seemingly in response to the video, Gobert tweeted "Insecurity is always loud...". Green's Sunday-night tweet appears to be a direct response to Gobert's comment on a similar incident.
It is unclear where the story goes from here. Despite tweeting an apology for his behavior, Gobert has been listed as doubtful for the Timberwolves' Play-In game against the Lakers on Monday night. If the Timberwolves sideline Gobert, it would be another significant blow to their playoff chances. The team also lost forward Jaden McDaniels' in Sunday's game, and Naz Daniels, the team's backup center, is already out due to injury. It remains to be seen if Gobert has done enough to face the Lakers. However, Draymond Green is eager to see the center held accountable in the court of public opinion.
