Draymond Green reveals the meaning behind the ‘Quickie’ T-shirt he wore at Warriors’ parade

A year after LeBron James famously wore an “Ultimate Warrior” T-shirt following the Cavaliers' historic comeback over the Warriors, Draymond Green fired back Thursday during Golden State’s championship parade.

The outspoken Warriors forward donned a T-shirt that read “Quickie”, leading many to speculate that Green was taking a shot at the Cavs’ Quicken Loans Arena and the relative ease with which they dispatched the defending champs. He not only acknowledged it during the parade, but he also said he got the shirt made in Cleveland.

“'The Q’, that’s what those guys’ arena’s called,” Green said about the Cavs. “Got them out here quick. With a trophy. Quickie.

“I was responsible for the idea. … We actually got it made in Cleveland. How about that?”

But Green made it clear that he has no beef with James, who Green said is like family.

“I can’t forget the Ultimate Warrior shirt last year from LeBron,” Green said “You know the 3-1 tombstone, cookies and all of that [from James’ Halloween party last year]. So I was waiting on this moment, but (he's) definitely my guy. That’s family.”


While the Warriors celebrated their second title in three years, James released footage of himself in the gym, pointing out his new haircut.


And then James followed up with a dig at the shirt.


Draymond took time during the parade to fire back.


And the Warriors forward questioned James' claims that he never played on a super-team, telling onlookers that James started the concept when he joined the Heat.
