Draymond Green, an experienced false accuser of social media hacking, is adamant that Kristaps Porzingis’ own claim is bogus.
The Warriors power forward, who once cried hacker (and retracted it) after Snapchatting a picture of his penis last year, even suggested Porzingis was drunk when the Latvian’s Twitter account posted “L.A. Clippers 😂😂😂.”
A day after the cryptic tweet on Porzingis’ account, the Knicks forward wrote he was hacked while providing evidence that he doesn’t normally use those emoji faces.
“Listen, man. I had an episode on social media this summer and the first thing I said was that I was hacked. Then I thought about it and I said, I wasn’t hacked,” Green said on his “Dray Day” podcast, during which he also ironically called Boston’s Kelly Olynyk a dirty player. “Kristaps, I’m sorry, but no one believes you. You weren’t hacked. You’re trying to go to the Clippers.
“Kristaps, you lyin’ bro. You weren’t hacked. Maybe you was drunk, and your true feelings came out, and you tweeted your true feelings. But you weren’t hacked my man. Trust me.”
Porzingis’ tweet occurred at about 2 a.m. in Spain where he is spending some of the offseason, and deleted almost immediately. What Green means by “true feelings” is unclear, although the Tweet got extra attention because Porzingis is so frustrated with the Knicks’ nonsense that he skipped out on his exit meeting.
Green has a history with Porzingis, making the matchup personal after an innocuous comment from the Latvian that “I’ll be ready (for Green).”
“I like the passion, I like the dog that he has, I like that you want to see me again, but keep that to yourself,” Green responded. “Don’t let everybody know that you’re going after me. So I guess we’re going to go after each other and that’s fine. I think he’s a great player. I think he will continue to get better and better, but that made it real personal.”
Green has also gone after James Dolan by stating the Knicks owner carried a “slavemaster’s mentality” during the Charles Oakley drama, and said he was “pissed off” at the way the Knicks treated Carmelo Anthony.
