Rudy Gobert 'responds' after Draymond Green trolled him for crying

Programming note: Watch the pregame edition of Warriors Outsiders on Saturday at 4:00pm P.T., streaming live on the MyTeams app.

Rudy Gobert wasn't going to just let Draymond Green speak his mind without some sort of response.

Shortly after the Jazz center got emotional with reporters when discussing not making the All-Star Game, Draymond Green took to Twitter.

A bunch of people on Twitter began to fire back at Draymond for his troll job. One such reaction was:

This is newsworthy because Gobert liked the tweet -- which was in reference to how Draymond called Kevin Durant from the Oracle Arena parking lot shortly after the Warriors lost Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals.

It's unclear if Draymond saw this specific reply, but the 2017 Defensive Player of the Year clearly saw some of the reaction because he tweeted again.

When it comes to quality content in the NBA, it just never stops.

Klay Thompson jokes about 'shark' Andrew Bogut coming back again next year

Klay Thompson jokes about 'shark' Andrew Bogut coming back again next year

Programming note: Watch the pregame edition of Warriors Outsiders tonight at 6, streaming live on the MyTeams app.

Andrew Bogut is a member of the Warriors right now, but he's definitely returning to Australia to play in the NBL next season.

"I've given my word to go back," the big man told reporters after practice on Tuesday.

If an NBA team offers him a contract for the whole 2019-20 season, would he consider staying in the states?

"No. I really enjoy being at home with the family," Bogut answered. "One or two games a week is great and this is the most important time in my kids' lives.

"Zero to two, zero to three -- the imprints or impressions that you put on as parents at that age set them up for success or failure in my opinion from everything that I've read."

So then this is his last hurrah in the NBA?

"Well you never know, I could come back after the NBL season," the No. 1 overall pick in the 2005 NBA Draft said with a smile. "Might have started a trend. I'll listen, it's not something I'm turning down or it's not something I'm accepting at this point. First and foremost get through this year and (then) we can talk about the future.

"But if it presents itself again, it's a pretty ideal situation, especially in California ... I might not even get an offer. Might not want to come back. Might want to hang up the boots at that point. Who knows."

When Klay Thompson was told that Bogut could return to Golden State next March, he offered his opinion on the matter.

"I would like that, too, so I won't have to play poker with him the whole year," Klay joked. "He's a pretty big shark in that aspect."

Bogut loves playing cards and is "the self-proclaimed best poker player in the organization."

He loves playing against Klay on the Warriors' team plane because apparently Klay isn't as good at hold 'em as he is as at basketball.

Somebody needs to find out how much money Bogut has taken from Klay over the years.

Damian Lillard's game-winning shot for Blazers had sports world going crazy

Damian Lillard's game-winning shot for Blazers had sports world going crazy

Damian Lillard is that dude. 

Lillard hit the one of the most cold-blooded shots in NBA playoff history on Tuesday night in Portland, a 37-foot 3-pointer in Paul George's face at the buzzer to beat the Thunder 118-115 and send the Blazers to the Western Conference Semifinals. 

The shot had everyone in the NBA talking on social media. The fourth quarter is Lillard time, and he proved that once again in the most clutch of ways. 

But there's always salt on a fresh wound. George called the game-winner a "bad shot" after the Thunder's loss. Well, Lillard begs to differ.

And of course there's a Curry spin in here. As Lillard was setting up for his shot, Seth Curry was getting ready to say bye to OKC. 

A Curry saying bye to the Thunder in the playoffs? Oh the tradition continues.
