The NBA Finals always provides drama and this year is no exception.

During Game 4, there was trash-talking going on between Cleveland CavaliersLeBron James and Golden State WarriorsDraymond Green. The trash-talking between the two escalated to the point where James hopped over Green in the last minutes of the game, which led to Green hitting James in the groin. James was accessed with a technical foul; Green will have to sit out Game 5.

Warriors guard Klay Thompson added to the drama on Sunday, saying James got his “feelings hurt” by Green.

“Obviously people have feelings,” he said. “People’s feelings get hurt if they’re called a bad word. I guess his feelings just got hurt.”

James laughed off the comment and said he would rather take the “high road” than respond.

“It’s so hard to take the high road,” James said. “I’ve been doing it for 13 years and it’s so hard to continue to do it and I’m going to do it again.”

Ayesha Curry, the wife of Warriors forward Stephen Curry, took at jab at James’ “take the high road” comment.

Curry teased James with the following tweet after the press conference.

Why can’t we all just be friends?

The Warriors lead the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals series, 3-1. The Warriors can try to repeat as NBA champions in Game 5 on Monday in Oakland.
