Talk about Bulletin Board material.
It’s been nearly three months since the Warriors played a game against the Memphis Grizzlies, but the rivalry doesn’t take off the Summer offseason. This past weekend Jaren Jackson Jr. revealed in a TikTok video that the Grizzlies have a Draymond Green quote written on a blackboard in their weight room for motivation.
“Memphis is going to get their reality check,” the quote reads.

Following the Warriors sending Memphis packing in six games during the playoffs last season, the back-and-forth escalated, and it’s still going strong well into the Summer.
In an interview with Bleacher Report’s Taylor Rooks, star guard Ja Morant claimed that Memphis lives “rent free” in the defending champions’ heads after Klay Thompson referred to a tweet by Jackson following the Warriors’ 2022 NBA Finals win.
Green saw those comments by Morant and responded on his podcast.
“Now, talking s–t to the team that won a championship after they beat you after they win a championship is an entirely different level of oblivion,” he said on the Draymond Green Show. “It doesn’t get much more oblivious than that. And I think for them, you’re now going to be expected to do that. You’re now going to be expected to win these games. And it’s not as easy when teams are coming for you.
“And so I think now, they’re going to get their reality check. And it’s not that they will still be able to win. They may still be able to win, but they’re going to realize how much harder it is for them to win. And now because they’re talking the way they’re talking, they better lose that oblivion, because they better understand these moments now are huge.”
Sounds like the Grizzlies are loyal Draymond Green podcast subscribers
