"Barkley should stop before I go take his job," the Golden State Warriors power forward said during the team's practice on Friday, according to reporter Wes Goldberg. "He already ain’t make enough money playing so he need that job. … I have a tendency to end people."
"If he keep talking, then I’ll take it soon. Sooner than he thinks. He probably should be quiet. He also can’t talk basketball with me either. Not smart enough, not qualified. No rings, can't sit at this table," Green added.
Barkley recently attacked Green for getting ejected during the second quarter of a Feb. 28 game against the Los Angeles Lakers, where the Warriors lost by 30 points.
Green and Barkley have butted heads several times in the past—and Green is known to have such nasty comebacks that people hesitate to quarrel with him. However, back in January, Barkley showed no mercy, saying, "Draymond don't talk as much now that he's averaging that triple-single," an insult that Barkley had previously used with Ben Simmons and Lonzo Ball.
Green heard about Barkley's diss and responded, saying, "You make everything sound like a Wendy's sandwich ... or maybe he's speaking in terms of my rings."
