Last year, LeBron James exited the Cavs flight home to hoist the Larry O'Brien trophy after defeating the Warriors in Game 7 while wearing an "Ultimate Warrior" shirt. This year, it's Draymond Green's turn.
Green celebrated with fans at the Warriors Championship Parade and Rally wearing a t-shirt that read "Quickie." The "Q" is identical to the "Q" logo for the Cavaliers home -- Quicken Loans Arena. With a blue a gold theme, the shirt also features the Larry O'Brien trophy.
"The Q: That's what those guys' arena is called. And we got them out of there quickie," Green explained to Ros Gold-Onwude.
"We actually got them made in Cleveland. How about that? I'm petty. I've been waiting for a while," Green added, citing James previous barbs -- the "Ultimate Warrior" shirt and cookies at his Halloween party that were decorated with Warriors tombstones and "3-1" -- as motivation.
Though many expected a long series this year, like last year's seven-game battle, the Warriors defeated the Cavs 4-1 after jumping out to a 3-0 lead.
Green, 27, averaged 13.1 points, 9.1 rebounds, 6.5 assists, 1.8 steals, 1.6 blocks and 34.9 minutes per game during the Warriors 16-1 playoff run.
UPDATE (Thursday at 12:25pm) -- Before the parade was even over, James posted his reponse to Instagram.
Green "liked" James' post and commented with 10 laughing-face emojis. He also responded with a post of his own...
With a big break until their next game, the Warriors spent a couple days in New York City.
Klay Thompson spent part of his Monday walking around the city.
And as only Thompson could, he wound up appearing on a local news report. But he wasn't talking about basketball. Not even close.
Courtesy of Twitter user @MP_Trey, Thompson was interviewed on Fox 5 NY to talk about ... scaffolding.
"I usually observe if the piping and stuff is new. Sometimes, you know, something looks like it's been there a while, I try to avoid that," Thompson said in the report.

Remember when Mark Jackson was the head coach of the Warriors?
During a recent conversation with ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Warriors GM Bob Myers shared the following story:
"I made a mistake with Mark one time -- after a game we lost, I went up to him right after we lost and asked him -- I think Curry had been having a big game and he ran a play for Carl Landry to take a shot to win the game; and it was a good play and it was a good shot.
"And I went up to Mark and I went, 'Did you think about Curry?' And he looked at me, and you could tell he was kind of containing himself, and he said, 'It was a good play. It was a good play.' And I look at him and I thought, 'I will never do that again.' If I don't trust the decisions the coach makes, then he's not the right coach.
"The coach gets to decide, right? I learned that lesson with Mark that I was completely out of line in asking him. And I apologized, and I'll never forget that lesson that I learned for myself ... I was wrong. And I learned that. So you learn more from mistakes sometimes. I don't do the debriefing with my coach after the game. Win or lose."
The Warriors fired Jackson a couple days after dropping Game 7 to the Clippers in the opening round of the playoffs.
Myers was named NBA Executive of the Year in 2015 and 2017.
