If you thought the beef between Draymond Green and Dillon Brooks would cool down after a Memphis Grizzlies win over the Golden State Warriors, well, that’s on you.

No, as it turns out, the Grizzlies getting their first win of the season over the Warriors in three tries proved to be just the shot in the arm needed for one of the more lopsided NBA feuds in recent memory.

This current chapter began with Brooks doing an ESPN interview and saying, among other things, “I don’t like Draymond at all.” Green responded in very Green fashion by laying into Brooks on his podcast, basically pointing to the scoreboard and saying the Grizzlies will never become the dynasty they believe they can be if they’re relying on Brooks.

All of this made for a lovely promo for Thursday’s Warriors-Grizzlies game and wouldn’t you know it, Green and Brooks got into it:

The real fireworks naturally came after the game, a lopsided 131-110 win for the shorthanded Grizzlies. Brooks finished the game with 14 points on 6-of-15 shooting with six assists, while Green had 16 points on 5-of-9 shooting, seven assists, five rebounds, three assists and five turnovers.

The loss continued a brutal season on the road for the 34-33 Warriors, who are now 7-26 away from Chase Center.

Brooks started the postgame proceedings by calling Green’s podcast habit “cute.”

Speaking with reporters later, Brooks shrugged off Green’s comments with a dubious claim.

Now, far be it from us to point to one player and deem him better (especially since irrational self-confidence is what fuels the vast majority of NBA players). Let’s just take a quick look at some resumes.

Green is a four-time All-Star, four-time NBA champion, one-time Defensive Player of the Year, seven-time All-Defense and two-time All-NBA team member in 11 seasons with the Warriors. Brooks … has been a consistent starter for the Grizzlies for the last four years.

Anyway, Brooks went on to make a much strong point, noting that it was rich Green insinuated his Grizzlies teammates didn’t like him when Green is the one who punched a teammate before the season:

Meanwhile, Green was chafing at the idea that the Warriors had a rivalry with the Grizzlies, again noting the Grizzlies don’t exactly have the resume to match up with the Warriors.

Who wins this round? People who love pointless NBA drama, obviously.
