Draymond Green called LeBron James a “b----” twice during their spat in Game 4 of the NBA Finals, reports Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated.

Green and James exchanged words and had to be separated late in Friday’s Game 4. The argument started when James stepped over Green while the Warriors forward was on the floor. Green swung his arms and hit James in the groin, for which he has been suspended for Game 5.

After Green stood up, him and James continued arguing through the whistle. According to Spears, James was angered because Green called him a “b----.”

According to sources, Green looked James dead in the face and called him a “b----.”

One NBA player in earshot of the trash-talk told The Undefeated that James responded by saying that he was the father of three kids and a man.

Green responded back, according to the player, by saying: “You’re still a b----.”

After Game 4, James took issue with Green’s comments, saying they crossed a line. Klay Thompson responded Sunday, saying James’s feelings were hurt as a result of the trash talk.

James laughed off Thompson’s comments, saying he would take the high road instead. The high road remark prompted a mocking response from Ayesha Curry, Stephen Curry’s wife. Mareese Speights also took a thinly veiled shot at James on Twitter.

The Warriors lead the series 3–1.
