Draymond, Ja Morant react to reported battle between Warriors and Grizzlies on Christmas Day

It seems Christmas came early for Draymond Green, Ja Morant and NBA fans who were busy with their so-called Twitter steak.

The defending NBA champion Warriors will reportedly host Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies at Chase Center on Christmas Day, according to NBA correspondent Marc Stein.

And Morant clearly can’t wait.

Green and the young Grizzlies star have been going back and forth in a series of Twitter exchanges that appeared to have fueled the flames in an already steamy enmity between the Warriors and Grizzlies.

And while they’ve denied any “rivalry,” it’s clear that this reported matchup is the one both teams wanted on Christmas Day.

Green also responded to the report, crediting Morant for being vocal about what he wanted.

In June, after the Warriors won their fourth NBA championship in eight seasons, Morant responded to a tweet suggesting a Golden State-Memphis matchup will take place in San Francisco on December 25.

But Morant suggested bringing the revelry to Memphis.

But as we’ve come to learn, thanks to LeBron James, that’s not how things work.

Green responded to Morant with a friendly reminder.

While fans at home are bundled up with hot chocolate and cookies while they enjoy some basketball on Christmas Day, make sure to grab some popcorn while you’re at it.
