Here's why Draymond Green posed for a photo after a 30-point blowout

If you stayed tuned in to the broadcast of Wednesday night's Game 3 past the final buzzer, you might have noticed a kind of weird moment involving Draymond Green.

The Golden State Warriors had just lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers by 30 points in a pretty embarrassing blowout, yet Green was spotted posing with what appeared to be a fan in the stands after the game.

That's odd, right? With what we know about Green, you'd expect him to be pretty angry. But there's apparently a decent reason for Green's smile. 

A Twitter user who appears to be the young woman in question said that she used to work in the Michigan State University basketball office during Green's time as a Spartan, and they hadn't seen each other since he'd made the jump to the NBA.

Yeah, it sucks for Green and the Warriors that they got beat so badly in Game 3. They're still up 2-1 in the series, and they have homecourt advantage. So we're not going to get upset with Green appreciating a quick reunion with an old friend.
