Doc Rivers calls Draymond Green a "tough guy;" doesn't mean it

The saga continues.

It was much ado about nothing when Dahntay Jones accidentally-on-purpose bumped into Draymond Green during his post-game interview after beating the Clippers Sunday, but the comments following have been pure gold.

Green had his "oh they're just jealous of me" moment in the locker room after the game, and the Clippers have responded.

From the LA Times:

"Some people like to draw attention to themselves and make themselves bigger than what it is," Jones said of Green, who made comments critical of his Clippers counterpart after Jones brushed his arm while walking to the locker room.

Jones called Green's comments "a little bit immature. I would have just shrugged it off. … I apologize if I hurt his feelings."

You know this is some grade-A grass-fed beef we're working with here when a player accuses another of having "hurt feelings."

And now, we have this gem from Doc Rivers:

"Wow, that was such a violent bump!" Rivers deadpanned. "I'm telling you. It was amazing. I told Dahntay, 'You've got to be careful. That was too hard.' I guess that tough guy at Golden State, I mean, I think the bump was too hard for him, clearly, the way he reacted."

The Clippers and Warriors will meet again on March 31 at Staples Center. Fasten your seatbelts, gang.
