Draymond Green is certainly happy to be champion again.

The Warriors star spent much of the weekend celebrating his and his team’s fourth title in the last eight years, taking a few shots at the Celtics along the way.

Green began his series of tweets on Friday morning, seemingly mocking Celtics star Jaylen Brown’s viral tweet from January before they went on a late-season run to climb the standings.

“The energy has shifted

4X,” Green wrote.

Later in the day, he quoted a tweet from ESPN showing him walking into TD Garden, which read, “Draymond Green turns up in all black for Game 6.”

“It was for a funeral,” Green wrote.

He cited another tweet in which he danced while being booed by Celtics fans.

“Yes, they should have ignored me today. Can’t give me the same look 🤷🏾,” Green tweeted.

When the Warriors left Boston, Green took home a souvenir: a jersey that TD Garden gave out to fans ahead of one of the finals games. Green wore the jersey with “It’s All About 18” written across the top showing the Celtics’ 17 title banners and one blank as the Celtics were looking to win their 18th title this season.

Green edited the shirt himself and wrote “Warriors – NOPE!! Maybe 23?”

Green, who also happens to be a Yankees fan, made one final observation before leaving Boston.

“I knew we were going to win the championship when I landed in Boston and they had a bus called the Yankee,” Green said in a video posted to his Instagram Story as the team prepared to board their flight to return to San Francisco.

Green also poked fun at Barstool Sports founder and Massachusetts native Dave Portnoy, who wore a t-shirt that read “Draymond is a jerk face” in a tweet during the finals.

“Hold the L-sigh,” replied Green back to Portnoy.

Green went back to trolling the Celtics on Sunday.

“Get ready for Game 7 tonight… 🔒 in!!! Happy Father’s Day,” Green wrote.

And again.

“🔥🔥🔥🔥 appreciate the support,” Green wrote in response to a tweet saying Celtics coaches listened to his podcast during the Finals.

The Celtics weren’t the only ones Green encountered on Twitter over the weekend. He went back and forth with Grizzlies star Ja Morant on Saturday night. He also appeared to mock his former teammate Kevin Durant Game 1 tweetwhich read, “High-level basketball game, gentlemen.”

“An extremely high level of basketball was shown,” Green wrote.

However, Green had some good things to say about the Celtics on his way out of town. During the post-game hug after Game 6, Green told several Celtics players that they would make it to the finals again soon. He also pronounced kudos to Celtics fans during the trophy celebration.

Green also showed respect to the Celtics on his podcast, The Draymond Green Show.

“I’m telling you what a man, I have a lot of respect for that group over there, led by Ime Udoka, an incredible, incredible coach. It’s a completely different team than over here. So what’s the difference? The difference is that a coach came and asked for something different. [He] tapped into something else when everyone said “Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum can’t play together” and “You were foolish to sign Marcus Smart to the max [extension]’ and ‘You were stupid to bring Al Horford back.’

“All those things, you have to give Brad Stevens credit for all the moves he made, but the thing that’s changed is that Ime Udoka came in. He wanted something different than these guys. He challenged JT (Tatum) to play defense. He required JT to move the ball and averaged seven or eight assists in that series. He challenged JB (Brown) to take that next step.

“It wouldn’t surprise me if this team wins a championship at some point in the near future when we’re done.”

Green and the Warriors will continue celebrating their title with a parade in San Francisco on Monday.
