Barnes has his money on Green.
After the Golden State Warriors swept the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals earlier this month, the champions continued the tradition of holding a celebratory parade. During the parade, Golden State's Draymond Green had some choice words to say about the Cavs' Tristan Thompson. Green infamously avoided shaking Thompson's hand after their victory. “We just cut from a different cloth. There's a lot of guys in this league, they soft,” Draymond stated with a smile on his face. “We just cut from a different cloth,” he continued. “We ain't cut the same. I told one of them dudes from Cavs after the game. He tried shaking my hand and I said 'Tristan we aint cut the same.'”
TMZ caught up with Matt Barnes recently, and asked the retired NBA star about the situation between Green and Thompson, and if the beef was serious. "A lot of people are tough on the court and then when you see them off the court, they're not as tough as they want to be," began Barnes. "But if it is serious, you know I got Draymond." When asked what he meant by people acting tough on the court, Barnes responded, "I don't know what Tristain was trying to do but, people know he's not built like that. It's known. Period." Barnes says its the "basketball tough talk" that has him positioned against Thompson in this feud, and claims his personal life has nothing to do with it. He also states that he thinks LeBron James should go to the Los Angeles Lakers. That would be epic.
