“See you in the Bay Aubrey, you weren’t talking today, were you?”

“See you in the Bay Aubrey, you weren’t talking today, were you?”

There’s nothing like silencing a trash talker. For all the potential benefits of getting under someone’s skin, if it doesn’t work, it is one of the most deflating moments on the court. Just ask Aubrey Graham. 

Drake talked a big game, pushed himself into the spotlight and pulled all sort of antics on the court. His contribution against the Bucks is dubious, but it didn’t stop him proclaiming he was responsible for Giannis’ free throws struggle. As he learned last night, the Warriors are a different beast.

This is an excellent reminder that just because they don’t act like Westbrook on the court, doesn’t mean the Warriors aren’t tough and competitive. Klay is one of the most chill guys in the league and here he is limping out with a pulled hamstring to greet his teammates and to throw a few darts at Drake.

You don’t get to 5 straight without an exceptional competitive drive and at at least a slight confrontational character. Playing next to Draymond would make almost anyone seem like a pacifist, but just because you don’t thump your chest, we shouldn’t decide you are “soft” – whatever that means. 

The superfan that he is, Drake didn’t travel to Milwaukee to support his team. Let’s see if he shows up at Oracle.
