Draymond Green: Celtics fans ‘more obnoxious’ than Cleveland fans

Nothing is lost between the fans of Draymond Green and the Boston Celtics after the last two NBA Finals games at TD Garden.

Green was greeted with boos and vulgar chants in games 3 and 4. The Golden State Warriors forward became public enemy No. 1 in Boston after overdoing his physical play in Game 2.

As the series returns to San Francisco for a pivotal Game 5, Green took some time to reflect on his eventful trip to Boston. He was asked on his podcast, The Draymond Green Show, how fans at TD Garden compare to other venues in the league.

“They’re loud,” Green replied. “They’re pretty loud. They are very noisy. A little obnoxious. But Cleveland fans used to be obnoxious, too. Now I think these people get the cake. But yes, it is noisy.

“I mean, you’re trying to win a championship. It should be loud. The fans should be there. And that’s why I respect it and after the series I’ll appreciate it. But for now you know what it’s about you.”

Listen to the following clip (mark 24:30):

Green may take “obnoxious” as an insult, but you can bet Celtics fans will be proud to receive the title of “most obnoxious”. It’s worn like a badge of honor here.

There’s no doubt that the TD Garden crowd had an impact on Green’s game. The four-time All-Star fouled Game 3 by just two points and then shot 1-7 off the floor in Game 4. Unfortunately for the C’s, Golden State was able to split the two games in Boston and pull off a 2-2 series going back to the Chase Center.

Game 5 is scheduled to begin just after 9 p.m. ET on Monday.
