When the post-match incident happened, Klay Thompson brutally roasted the “tough guy” piston players
Klay Thompson and Draymond Green have removed the rarely used piston Rodney McGruder on live television.
When Juan Toscano-Anderson (Juan Toscano-Anderson) of the Golden State Warriors spoke to Wayne Ellington (Wayne Ellington) of Detroit, McGrud took action attack.
After the Warriors defeated the Pistons 118-91 on Saturday, the players exchanged words as the players left the court.
But then things became very spicy.
Thompson missed this season due to Achilles injury. He called it a game on the Warriors’ NBC Sports Bay Area broadcast. He said so when asked what happened on the ground.

“This guy may leave the league soon, he may be angry about it, who knows?” Thompson said, and the rest of the broadcast team laughed. “Here, try to start things like he is a good player. ”
Draymond Green spared no effort to add fuel to the fire at the press conference after the game.

“When the fucking Rodney McGruder became the tough guy on the team? ”Green said. “If you really want to do something, you can do it. Go over there and talk like he is a tough guy on the team. Get out of here.”
Then Ellington recalled some of his thoughts.
“First of all, I think attacking someone with Rodney’s career is very professional, definitely not top-notch… He is one of the most diligent, humble, down-to-earth guys in our league.
“In order for Draymond to sit up and talk about all this crazy stuff behind the microphone, I think it’s a tough fake tough guy thing.”
The Warriors and Pistons have met twice this season. They were originally scheduled to not play each other again this season, so any additional barbs must now be traded on Twitter.
