Steve Kerr might or might not have been tired of Draymond Green's s--- in the Warriors' loss to the lowly Phoenix Suns on Sunday, but Green certainly was tired of one fan's comment.
On a video posted to Instagram that appeared to show Kerr's dissatisfaction with Green, one commenter echoed the Warriors coach’s apparent NSFW langauge and tagged the three-time All-Star. Then, the roast was on.
Green wrote back: "[How] your church league working [out] for you?"

Said commenter's account was set to private as of press time, so we have no way of confirming whether or not they actually play in a church league. Green doesn't follow their account, either, but that is an incisive burn nonetheless.
Green has a reputation as one of the NBA's best trash-talkers, so coming after him on social media probably wasn't the best idea. Unless you turn to E-40 for advice, that is.
The rumors started eight days ago. All-Star point guard Chris Paul "wants out" of Houston, Stephen A. Smith reported.
Since then, there have multiple reports of chaos within the Rockets organization, one that even stated Paul's relationship with NBA MVP James Harden is 'unsalvageable.'
But on Sunday, Paul tried to put all those rumors to bed.
“I never asked for a trade,” Paul told The Houston Chronicle's Jonathan Feigen. “I never demanded a trade.”
Trading Paul would be difficult for Rockets general manager Daryl Morey. Paul still is owed more than $124 million over the next three seasons, and finding a team that can take on that kind of salary for an aging point guard would be tough.
As for the reported rift with Harden, Paul claimed he's not unhappy in his current situtation.
“I’ll be in Houston,” Paul told Feigen. “I’m happy about that. I’m very happy about that. I’m good.”

The Rockets gave the Warriors a good battle in each of the last two postseasons. With Golden State nursing its wounds during the 2019-20 season, this might be Houston's chance to pounce and get to the NBA Finals.
We'll find out over the next few weeks if Paul is telling the truth or if the whispers of his unhappiness actually were true.
The Kawhi Leonard-Toronto Raptors marriage might not be a one-year fling after all.
Yahoo's Chris Haynes reported Sunday that the 2019 NBA Finals MVP will decline his $21.3 million player option for the 2019-20 season, but that Leonard is "seriously considering re-signing with the Raptors."
Most experts have been predicting that Leonard will bolt Toronto for one of the Los Angeles teams. But Haynes' reporting changes things a bit.
Haynes also reported that rival front-office executives view the Raptors as the favorites to land Leonard.
The Raptors can offer Leonard a five-year, $190 million contract, according to Haynes.

While the Warriors likely aren't in the mood for any Kawhi-related news, considering he just ended their bid for a three-peat, they have to be excited at the thought of Leonard not joining the Pacific Division.
Leonard put on a dominating performance against the Warriors in the NBA Finals, as he averaged 28.5 points and 9.8 rebounds over the six games.
