Regardless of whether the Warriors advance to their fifth consecutive NBA Finals, despite everything they’ll have plenty tofall back on when it comes to talking trash.
Warriors minority owner Craig Johnson demonstrated as much Monday night, when he flashed his three NBA championship rings to the Houston Rockets fans in his area amid Game 4 of the second-round playoff series.
Mary Babers-Green, Draymond Green’s mother, was there to archive the garbage talk in Toyota Center, tweeted, at that point later erased, an image of Johnson wearing his rings, with the inscription: “The funniest thing just happened…Warriors Owner CJ just flexed on a couple of Houston fans! He said, you want one of these DONT YA!”
Johnson was one of the financial specialists in the Warriors’ group, led by Joe Lacob and Peter Guber, that bought the team in 2010.
The Warriors have thumped out the Rockets in three of the last four postseasons, including a seven-game series prevail upon Houston in the Western Conference finals a year prior. Those playoff wins gave Johnson all that could possibly be needed space to call scoreboard – no matter the result of Monday’s Game 4. Johnson channeling his inner Kobe Stan and counting the rings, then, is just rubbing it in on the Rockets.
