The bad blood between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors spilled into social media Sunday with Game 5 of the NBA Finals looming—Draymond Green’s suspension incensed the Dubs and their families.
LeBron giggled and said "oh my goodness" when informed of what Klay Thompson said about his "feelings being hurt."

LeBron James says he won't comment on Klay Thompson saying he got his feelings hurt in trash talk. "It's so hard to take the high road," LJ.

The Cavs, for their part, are avoiding the war of words and focused solely on extending their season past Monday night.
Per the NEOMG:
Cavs coach Tyronn Lue was fined $25,000 for his postgame remarks toward the officials when he said, “He (LeBron) never gets calls.” […] Warriors center Andrew Bogut said Lue and James intentionally took to the podium that evening with a clear plan of pouring gasoline onto an already-hot Draymond Green suspension soapbox.
“You knew after Game 4 it was going to be very likely [Draymond gets suspended] with all the stuff coming out from their end,” Bogut said. “That’s all their coaches and their manager have to do, try and get him out.”
Bogut also said with Green unavailable, the pressure is on the Cavaliers to send the series back to Cleveland. […] “All the pressure has been on us,” J.R. Smith said. “We’re the ones that’s been down in the series. What are they talking about? They act like we’re up.”
