Fake news strikes again.
Both Kevin Garnett and Draymond Green are known for their honesty and fearlessness in the NBA.
However, a parody Twitter account recently posted a fake quote attributed to Garnett, suggesting that he would welcome a fight with Green for punching Jordan Poole last year.
Green, seeing the blue checkmark on the account, fell for the joke and called out Garnett.
“I tried you when I was a rookie KG, and you started talking to yourself like I wasn’t talking to you. What’s that like? The Freshman picking on the senior citizen that’s double his size?
Although Garnett is known for his honesty and confrontational nature, he responded by tagging Twitter chairman Elon Musk and pointing out that blue checks can be easily obtained.
That’s a fake tweet. “NBA Centel”… @elonmusk see wtf is happening ??

Green eventually deleted his tweet, indicating that the saga is likely over.
But what a fun saga it was.
