I hate Golden State Warriors. Memphis Grizzlies fans can hate them too

It was Steve Kerr’s hypocrisy and Draymond Green’s obnoxiousness.

It was Kerr reading everyone about how Dillon Brooks broke the NBA’s “code” with his flagrant foul, even though that code doesn’t apply to Green, a player who has kicked so many opposing players in the nether regions, there’s a YouTube video of them that lasts nearly two minutes.

It was Green complaining about the behavior of the fans inside FedExForum he had spent Game 1 inciting, then bragging about how much money he makes compared to them.

That’s when I knew again.

I hate the Golden State Warriors, and the NBA playoffs will be better off now because of it. Now that everybody involved in their Western Conference semifinal series against the memphis grizzlies is starting to develop a healthy hate for one another.

OPINION:With Ja Morant, the Memphis Grizzlies are on verge of cracking Golden State’s code

OPINION:Ja Morant’s legend grows as Memphis Grizzlies even series with Golden State in Game 2

You hear players often cite “playoff basketball” when discussing the increased physicality and heightened emotions of the postseason. Well, conjuring up an irrational distaste for people, places and teams, that is as much a part of “playoff basketball” as a debate about what should and shouldn’t constitute a hard foul.
