I hate the Golden State Warriors. Memphis Grizzlies fans may hate them too

It was the hypocrisy of Steve Kerr and the obnoxiousness of Draymond Green.

It was Kerr lecturing everyone on how Dillon Brooks broke the NBA “code” with his flagrant foul, even if this code does not apply to Green, a player who kicked so many opposing players in the lower regions, there is a YouTube video of them which lasts about two minutes.

It was Green complaining about the behavior of the fans inside the FedExForum he spent inciting in the first game, then bragging about how much money he was making compared to them.

That’s when I knew again.

I hate the Golden State Warriors, and the NBA playoffs will be better now because of it. Now that everyone involved in their Western Conference Semifinals series against the Memphis Grizzlies begins to develop a healthy hatred for each other.

OPINION:With Ja Morant, the Memphis Grizzlies are about to crack the Golden State code

OPINION:Ja Morant legend grows as Memphis Grizzlies even have a series with Golden State in Game 2

You often hear players cite “playoff basketball” when discussing the heightened physique and heightened emotions of the playoffs. Well, evoking an irrational distaste for people, places, and teams is as much a part of “playoff basketball” as a debate about what should and shouldn’t constitute a hard foul.
