LeBron Reveals What Draymond Green Said To Him To Set Him Off

LeBron James doesn't let much get to him - especially while he's on the court doing battle. In fact, he's known for having a cooler head than most NBA stars. But Friday night, James, uncharacteristically, lost it after an altercation with Warriors forward Draymond Green.

James, while fighting a screen from Green, knocked him to the ground, then attempted to walk over him to trail the play. Green tried to get up while James was standing over him, and the two got into it a little bit. Green, apparently, used some choice words that James didn't appreciate.

After the contest, James told reporters that Green went "overboard" with the words he used. ESPN's Chris Broussard is reporting that the trigger word was "b*tch."

Regardless, the Warriors now lead 3-1 and head back home for Game 5. It'll be interesting to see if there is any follow-up here.
