Warriors’ Draymond Green invites Ja Morant and his family for Christmas Dinner after Warriors and Grizzlies announced to play on X-Mas Day

The Golden State Warriors have a new budding rivalry in the West. After going neck-to-neck with the Rockets during their late 2010s runs, a new challenger has appeared. The young Memphis Grizzlies have arrived to the party, and they want all the smoke.

After the Warriors and Grizzlies went head-to-head for the 8th spot in the West in 2021, Ja Morant and Memphis eliminated the Dubs in the play-in game. This only fueled the fire inside the Warriors. During the season, the teams met 4 times, with Memphis winning the season series 3-1.

However, when these teams met in the 2nd round of the playoffs, Draymond Green knew the result wouldn’t be the same. The Dubs showed their championship caliber and took down the youngbloods 4-2.

Once the season ended, Ja Morant wished the Grizzlies to host the Warriors for X-Mas, to which Draymond Green had a hilarious reply. I guess the NBA heard them and fulfilled their wishes.
