Ex-Cav took shot at Draymond Green during Game 3
Draymond Green’s antics appear to be wearing thin on the Cleveland Cavaliers, present and former ones alike.
Ex-Cav Channing Frye took to Twitter during Game 3 of the NBA Finals Wednesday to shade Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green. Without mentioning him by name, Frye hinted that Green got away with excessive outbursts at the refs due to his well-established reputation as a loudmouth.
I cannot wait to start off the year yelling at the refs like a hobo on bath salts, so when i get in the playoffs they say “oh it’s just Channing”

Frye was acquired by Cleveland in 2016 and remained with them until just this past February when he was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers. Thus, he is quite familiar with Green’s shenanigans, having been in the trench with the Cavs for their previous two Finals appearances against the Warriors.
As for Green himself, he did pick up a technical foul (his fifth of the playoffs) during Golden State’s 110-102 victory. But Frye’s greater point remains — just this series alone, Green has already gotten away with his fair share of taunts.
