After the game, Kerr was asked about the first technical foul, which was originally attributed to Green, but was later said to be Kerr's. "They don't seem to be the sharpest people around".
"Now that it's a legit possibility, one game away, I think you should think about it at this point", Green added.
"Aint no tech gonna stop me from being me", Green said.
"Yeah, they're fine", Green said about the incident.
In the end, Draymond stayed on the court, Steve Kerr received a technical and the continued scrutiny of Game 4's officiating will most certainly be the headline regardless of the outcome. He said Golden State players brought up the subject in the immediate wake of their stunning, 118-113 victory over the Cavaliers in Game 3 at The Q on June 7.
"It didn't get blown out until the police grabbed me and the dude got hyped!" If you come into the game chanting my name, you be at home thinking about me. So then I thought on the second one Draymond was going to get kicked out.
Now the Warriors are on the cusp of a second championship in three years, and there's no telling when this dynasty might slow down. The game of basketball created that. It's like the aura of the game created trash talk and just communication out there.
"But evidently he said no, it was on Steve Kerr, the first one. Emotions are what keeps this game alive".
"You get down 3-0 and you're fighting and you're trying to get a win, you do whatever it takes", he said.
The stats show James' impact in the game, but he did miss a few wide-open layups in the second half and definitely deferred to guard Kyrie Irving at times. There is just the hard painful slog of finishing off a very good team, or expiring in the attempt.
