Draymond Green has never been a big fan of Minnesota Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert. On Friday, the Golden State Warriors star took another shot at the Frenchman after the T-Wolves lost Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals.

The Timberwolves fell 109-108 after Luka Doncic hit a dagger three over Gobert in the closing seconds at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minn. The Mavericks star also spouted some legendary trash talk toward Gobert after making the shot.

Doncic joined the “Inside the NBA” panel after the game. As the group discussed Doncic’s shot at Gobert, panelist Draymond Green started hearing some “Draymond sucks” chants from a few Timberwolves fans.

“Rudy sucks, not me,” said Green. “What did I do? I didn’t do anything. What are they looking at me for? [Luka Doncic] did it to them, not me.”

Green has had a beef with Gobert over the past few years. The Warriors star has never been shy to take swipes at Gobert whenever the opportunity arises.

Green infamously put Gobert in a chokehold, which led to the former’s lengthy suspension earlier this season.

Gobert didn’t have a poor performance in Game 2 based on the box score. He finished with 16 points and 10 rebounds on 6/10 shooting from the field. But the ridicule he received on Friday — and probably going forward — will probably sting a little more if the Timberwolves don’t come back in the series.
