The Milwaukee Bucks and the Golden State Warriors tussled to the last second on Tuesday. As expected, it wasn’t lacking in fiery highlights. Bucks guard Jrue Holiday absolutely balled out and even embarrassed Warriors forward Draymond Green in one play.
Holiday drove hard to the rack but was impeded by Green. So, he cracked a nifty sidestep and dropped the energetic enforcer to the floor before making the easy lay-up. It was so nice, the Bucks’ Twitter account couldn’t help but throw some shade at Green for proclaiming himself as the best defender in NBA history.
The quotation marks hammered it home.

The Bucks’ Twitter account is no stranger to trolling opposing players, doing it to Andre Drummond during his Los Angeles Lakers debut when he got dunked on by Giannis Antetokounmpo.

In a recent interview with NBC Sports Bay Area, the 31-year-old Green boldly declared he is the best defender ever in the NBA, saying he’d put himself against anyone. While his argument may hold water, his defense didn’t hold up against Holiday on Tuesday.
Of course, Jrue Holiday is one of the nicest guys in the NBA, so doesn’t have it in him to talk smack to Draymond Green, while he was helplessly on the floor. Good thing the Bucks’ Twitter account did it for him.
