Draymond Green

Warriors fans savagely troll Nurkić after Suns swept by T-Wolves

NBC Universal, Inc.

Jusuf Nurkić's beef with Draymond Green and the Warriors might have intensified Sunday without even seeing each other on the court.

The Minnesota Timberwolves finished off the sweep of Nurkić's Phoenix Suns in the first round of the NBA playoffs Sunday, but it was Dub Nation that let the Suns center hear it after Phoenix's 122-116 loss to Minnesota at Footprint Center.

After Golden State missed the playoffs following a play-in loss to the Sacramento Kings, Nurkić wasted no time sending the Warriors into the offseason with a petty message posted to X, formerly known as Twitter.

Just as Nurkić thought he had the final word, Warriors fans had other ideas.

And as we've come to learn: What happens on the internet, is never forgotten by Dub Nation.

Immediately after the Suns' loss Sunday, Warriors fans and the NBA world sped to Nurkić's post and absolutely lit it up.

By Monday morning, the post had more than 6.6 million views, nearly 3,000 comments and more than 3,600 quote posts. Here's a look at just a few of them.

The beef, of course, stems back to the beginning of the 2023-24 NBA season when Green struck Nurkić in the face on Dec. 12, which resulted in Green's indefinite suspension that lasted 12 games.

The feud carried over into their following matchup on Feb. 14, as things grew chippy between the two. Some words were exchanged and social media posts were shared, making it clear that the two players do not like each other.

Nurkić now is 3-17 in the playoffs, the worst win percentage (.150) by any player in NBA playoff history with at least 20 games.

And while the Warriors missed the playoffs for just the third time in the past 12 seasons, they have the same amount of playoff wins as Nurkić this postseason.

And that is all, folks.
