What’s the buzz on Twitter?

From the archives: January 3, 2019. Down two in Cali, #Rockets James Harden hits the game-winning three in OT right in the mugs of Dray and Klay. I overlayed the radio call on the video back then — @ca_rockets threw out his back on the call. pic.twitter.com/Zs28JTR6wi6:02 PM

Knowing Draymond’s hope to earn DPOTY, I asked if he felt like All-Defensive 2nd Team was a compliment or a slight. Draymond said, “It’s a slight. I think when I look at the first team, I’m not sure I can pinpoint definitely five guys that had a better defensive season than me.” – 5:29 PM

Dalton Johnson @DaltonJ_Johnson
Draymond: “You have to embrace your path for what it is, and that’s what [Jordan Poole] has done.” – 5:20 PM

Krishna Narsu @knarsu3
KD’s definitely going to be watching the Finals with a Tatum jersey on rooting hard against Steph and the Warriors 😂 – 5:20 PM

Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Draymond Green on making All-Defensive Second Team: “For me, it’s a slight. … When I look at the First Team, I’m not sure I can pinpoint five guys who had a better defensive season than me.” – 5:17 PM

Dalton Johnson @DaltonJ_Johnson
Draymond Green sees Second-Team All-Defensive as a slight. Doesn’t see five guys who were better at defense than him this season – 5:16 PM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Why won’t they trade for a big man? They’re too small. Why won’t they scour the buyout market? Through the relentless questions, Steve Kerr and Draymond Green didn’t blink. Neither did Kevon Looney. nbcsports.com/bayarea/warrio…4:46 PM

There are 99 players in NBA history who have appeared in at least 25 conference finals games.
The top three by winning percentage are the @Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green, all of whom are 24-8 (.750). pic.twitter.com/QtHEzFRSqV3:01 PM

Draymond Green on the Warriors’ Big Three making their sixth NBA Finals appearance in eight years:
“No one has proven that they can move us off that spot. That’s the mindset we come into this thing with. We understand what it takes to win a championship.” basketballnews.com/breakingnews/s…7:20 PM

Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are the third pair of teammates aged 25 years or younger to reach the NBA Finals averaging 20 PPG each.
— Tatum & Brown (2022)
— Durant & Westbrook (2012)
— DJ & Gus Williams (1979)

Three years later – the team KD left (the Warriors) and the team Kyrie left (the Celtics) are facing off in the NBA Finals – 8:46 AM

With 26 tonight, the inaugural Larry Bird ECF MVP Jayson Tatum passed Kevin Durant and Tony Parker into 3rd on the NBA’s all-time playoff scoring list for players under the age of 25.

From Kevin Durant’s toe to Max Strus’ heel … – 11:22 PM

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Kevin Durant, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jimmy Butler all played the Celtics with an injury-riddled roster.
Jimmy Butler came closer to beating them than Giannis or KD did.
I don’t know what to make of that, but it’s pretty significant for how we should think of Jimmy. – 11:20 PM

Justin Garcia @tmjgarcia
The Celtics are the best team left in the playoffs. They’re better than a healthy Miami team and much better than this version limping to the finish line. They took out KD and Giannis but are 24 minutes away from blowing what might be this group’s best chance at a title – 9:59 PM

Sopan Deb @SopanDeb
ok seriously it’s an hour long pregame show for a game 7 of the eastern conference and espn has spent the most time on whether KD is better than Curry (because it’s 2018) and the lakers new coach – 8:06 PM

Sopan Deb @SopanDeb
looking forward to warriors fans sensibly reacting to this espn discussion on who is better between KD and curry – 8:03 PM

Kevin Durant @KDTrey5
Nobody better…. That left is a missle. Stay away. ⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️ – 12:58 AM

Kevin Durant @KDTrey5
I be talking to the tv like I’m the Cut man. 🗣 Lets get it Tank – 12:33 AM

More on this storyline

“They need those shiny objects for them to be able to analyze what’s going on… Steph Curry got double teamed 7X the amount Kevin Durant did…the impact he has on a game, if you don’t understand basketball, you’re going to say he needs a FMVP to validate who he is.” – Draymond Green on Stephen Curry and Finals MVP. Kevin Durant responded on Twitter: From my view of it, this is 100% false… -via Twitter @KDTrey5 / May 31, 2022

Kevin Durant: Oh I seen it my brethren, I appreciate the compliments but I disagree with what u said about double teams that’s all. I love the show -via Twitter @KDTrey5 / May 31, 2022

Anthony Slater: Gary Payton II, Otto Porter Jr. and Andre Iguodala were all full participants in practice today. Lighter practice. Full contact practice tomorrow. Steve Kerr said team will know more on GP2/Iguodala/Otto post practice tomorrow. -via Twitter @anthonyVslater / May 31, 2022
