Some variation of those words was written or uttered somewhere nearly one year ago.
The outspoken 27-year-old will try to help the Warriors, who lead this year's best-of-seven series 3-1, defeat the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday in Oakland to capture the crown. So they have the Warriors right where they want them, right?
No announcement was ever made correcting the error, not that Green was listening for one.
"No, I feel this is the game we've got to get", he said, "or it's over". But it was a flawless storm for the Cavaliers as so many things contributed to the Warriors' collapse.
Green has been heckled at the Cavs' Quicken Loans Arena throughout Games 3 and 4. This is the Cavaliers' defensive plan coming to fruition: double-team Curry, stay home on Thompson, and let Green shoot. Overall, they have more weapons and they appear to have grown and matured from last year's meltdown.
"But evidently he said no, it was on Steve Kerr, the first one". With a coach or a trainer, we just verbalize and at that time we should listen to the PA announcer to who it is on. But the officials on hand claim Green's first T was intended for head coach Steve Kerr. "After looking at the video, I did not verbalize to the table, and looking at the video, I should have done a better job of making sure that the table knew the technical foul was on Coach Kerr". "And I know I wasn't ejected". "But we'll go tee it up again".
"After calling the loose ball foul on Draymond Green, I noticed the reaction by Coach Kerr and then assessed a technical foul", official Mike Callahan said after the 137-116 Cavs victory.
Golden State looks to clinch at home
And the more you give me a little bit of an opportunity, the more you give me a little bit more of a leash, I can contribute. With all of the Warriors' big guns healthy, the Cavaliers understand where they stand.
Callahan: "We found out at the same time when we called the first technical foul (6:18, 3rd) on Draymond Green". Draymond Green needs to play in this Game 5. "I've won one on the road". We have to come out with some fire and try it get done.
He had 14 rebounds in Game 4, his best performance of the playoffs.
"I'm sure it will come", Green said. "We're ready to live in it".
LeBron James (23) de los Cavaliers de Cleveland clava el balÃ³n ante los Warriors de Golden State en la final de la National Basketball Association, el viernes 9 de junio de 2017. It probably will take another gargantuan performance from James and Irvings in Game 5 to keep the series going.
James has grown accustomed to being in this situation, but he wishes the Cavaliers would stop backing themselves in a corner.
"Like I said, I think because of experience". "It causes too much stress man".
"We know that champions don't die". We're battle tested, they're battle tested. At least if I'm going to get 'em, let me earn them. "We look forward to the challenge".
