Draymond Green

Draymond Green dares you to challenge him. 

Following the Warriors' 113-101 win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday at Chase Center to earn the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference play-in tournament, NBC Sports Bay Area's Kelenna Azubuike was asking Green about teams trying to beat him with bigger players when Draymond had to interrupt. He couldn't listen to another word. 

"I'm a mothaf--kin' dog," Green said. "Dray like that. I don't know how else to tell you. People been goin' at me for years with centers. They been goin' at Loon for years. That s--t ain't work yet.

"We dogs. So keep tryin' it."

Green did it all in the regular-season finale, scoring 14 points with nine rebounds and nine assists. He was plus-7 in 38 minutes. 

The Warriors now will face either the Los Angeles Lakers or Portland Trail Blazers in the NBA play-in tournament on Wednesday. Golden State went 1-2 against both teams in the regular season.

That doesn't matter to Draymond and Co. though.

He has been an underdog, he has been counted out before and he turned that into being a three-time champion. Now, he's ready for his next challenge.
