Draymond Green is on the warpath, and says he wants to “destroy” the Cleveland Cavaliers should his Golden State Warriors meet LeBron James and company in the NBA Finals for a third consecutive year.
"I want to destroy Cleveland … I want to annihilate them"

Green, however, is quick to point out that Dubs must first worry about getting out of the Western Conference.
Golden State (2-1) has been slow out of the gates and will take time to jell.
Bird and Magic used to always wake up every morning and see how the other guy’s team did the night before, because they knew they were going to see each other in The Finals. If you get back, is Cleveland the only team you want to play?
DG: “No. I want to win the Western Conference, try to beat everybody in the Western Conference — which is a tough task. There are so many good teams. So that’s got to be our only focus, to win the Western Conference. And then, if Cleveland comes out of the east, I want to destroy Cleveland. No ifs, ands and buts about it. But I also know that there’s steps to get to that point. And if and when we get to that point, I want to annihilate them.”
DG: “And they get there, I want to completely destroy them. No ifs, ands or buts about it. That won’t change. I’m not saying we’re going to look forward to that. Like I said, there’s a long road ahead. And it’ll be a tough, tough road to get there. Nonetheless, if we get there, and they get there, I want to destroy them. Really ain’t no other way to put it.”
