Draymond Green has returned to the NBA playoffs, just not in the capacity as a participating player. With the Warriors' season already over, Green has resumed his temporary duties as an analyst for TNT.
Green stepped in for Hall of Fame center Shaquille O'Neal on Monday night, and it didn't take long for him and Charles Barkley to continue their hilarious back-and-forth.
Prior to Monday's Game 4 between the Philadelphia 76ers and Washington Wizards, TNT's Ernie Johnson asked Green for a bold take on which team ultimately would come out of the Eastern Conference.
Green was more than happy to oblige Johnson, though he didn't exactly have a hot take -- or at least, not in his mind. Barkley, naturally, was at the ready to disagree.
"I don't know if you're getting anything bold out of me here," Green said to Johnson. "Who's winning the East? Brooklyn's winning the East. I don't really think that's that bold, though. Who's beating them?"
"Milwaukee Bucks," Barkley interjected.
"Good luck, Chuck," Green responded.
You better watch out, Shaq. Someone's coming for your spot.
