LeBron Laughs When Told Klay Thompson Thinks Draymond Green Hurt James' Feelings

The Golden State Warriors aren't happy with the NBA's decision to assess a flagrant-1 foul—which resulted in a one-game suspension—to Draymond Green for his actions during an incident with Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James in Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Friday.  

Now, the action has moved from on the court to through the media.

When asked about the situation, Warriors star Klay Thompson didn't hold back, via Rachel Nichols of ESPN:

It's important to note that ESPN.com's Dave McMenamin (via ESPN.com's Brian Windhorst) reported part of the reason James got so upset during the game was that Green allegedly called him a "b---h." If that's what he said, some people, such as Thompson, believe the four-time NBA MVP needs to have thicker skin.

Well, Thompson's comments were relayed to James—and the two-time champion refrained from getting into a war of words. All he could do was laugh and hold his tongue.

Thompson, however, was hardly the only person on Golden State's side of things to speak out against James. Stephen Curry's wife, Ayesha, commented on James taking the "high road":

And Marreese Speights said what James did to Green was "disrespectful," per Ethan Strauss of ESPN:

Green will not play when the Warriors host the Cavaliers on Monday night. But you better believe Oracle Arena—including Golden State fans and perhaps even some of its players—will let James have it.
