Golden State's Draymond Green is the current king of NBA trash-talking

Golden State's Draymond Green is the current king of NBA trash-talking

"I called game. Game!"

It's impossible to forget one of Paul Pierce's most boastful trash-talking lines, after his fallaway buzzer-beater pushed the Washington Wizards past the Atlanta Hawks during an Eastern Conference playoff game last season.

But even though Pierce is legendary for talking throughout his 18-year NBA career, he wasn't considered the best when The Times conducted a poll on the best trash-talkers in the league.

Golden State's talented young power forward Draymond Green wears the trash-talking crown these days, at least according to the 24 NBA coaches, assistants and players who took part in an anonymous poll.
