Draymond Green appeared in all black for Game 6 and appeared to send a message that the series would end in Boston on Thursday.

On Friday morning, after the Warriors won the championship the night before, Green confirmed his outfit choice was deliberate.

“It was for a funeral,” Green tweeted.

Green struggled for much of the series and was even benched late in Game 4, but he responded convincingly in Game 5 and Game 6. He put together a vintage performance on Thursday, posting 12 points, 12 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 blocks collected. and 2 steals and even a couple of 3-pointers after the start of the 0-for-11 series.

It doesn’t take much to cheer for Green, but this was certainly as reasonable a time as any for a tweet frenzy.

He also tweeted “The Energy Shifted 4X” — a nod to Jaylen Brown’s tweet earlier this season in which the Warriors won four games in the series and the Warriors clinched their fourth title in eight years.

Green also cited a video posted by NBA on ESPN showing him muting those in his circle amid a cacophony of boos and other chants from the TD Garden crowd.

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

Finally, after the win, the Warriors lightheartedly sang “F*** you, Draymond” in the locker room, and Kevon Looney joked that Green himself has been yelling at the Warriors all year.

Andre Iguodala called the quote gold, and Green agreed.
