Draymond Green is not exactly the most renowned high-flyer in the NBA. This is exactly the reason why more than a few folks were pleasantly surprised when the Golden State Warriors star threw down an eye-popping dunk during Friday night’s 126-85 blowout win against the New Orleans Pelicans. Even Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James was taken aback by Green’s nasty slam.
LeBron was so surprised by Green’s rare dunk sighting that the Lakers star decided to clown the outspoken Dubs forward by hilariously encouraging him to join this year’s dunk contest (h/t Sam Leweck of Lakers Daily):
LeBron went for no less than six LOL emojis to make his point. It was clear that the Lakers superstar was not-so-innocently having a laugh at the expense of Draymond Green.
In case you haven’t seen Green’s throwdown from Friday night, here it is for your viewing pleasure:
If you’re not familiar with Draymond Green’s style of play then this play might be enough to convince you that the three-time All-Star is actually a high-flyer. Those of us who know Dray, however, understand that dunks like these come once in a blue moon for him. LeBron clearly agrees with this notion and the Lakers star just had to troll his buddy a bit after his unexpected aerial voyage.
