The Golden State Warriors only really figured out the LeBron James-heavy Cavs when they decided to insert Andre Iguodala into the starting lineup, and slide Draymond Green over to center, with Andrew Bogut the odd man out. Their small-ball lineup effectively brought them a Finals win, and it was one of Steve Kerr’s more devastating lineups during the season, too.
Whiteside followed up his tweet in the early-morning hours today, when he mentioned how undersized centers — like Green — must rely on a double when they’re stuck one-on-one on the block against players, presumably of Whiteside’s ilk.
And when one fan pointed out to Green on Twitter that Whiteside averaged more points per game last season, Green politely let him know that he’s not Golden State’s primary scorer.
Regardless of who won this tepid Twitter back-and-forth, Green’s right.
