The Golden State Warriors have expressed outrage at the behavior of fans from Boston fans during the three games of the NBA Finals, especially with Dreammond Green being abused during the competition.
Green endured a turbulent time in Boston before fouling in the fourth quarter of Boston’s 116-100 win, finishing with just two points, four rebounds and three assists.
However, more than an ejection, it was an ejection response from Boston loyalists that annoyed Hazel, the Warriors and Green’s wife.

When Green was given his marching order, the 19,156 crowd inside Boston’s TD Garden broke into a very melodious “F — U, Drymond” slogan.
“Hard damage but somehow, in shape or form fans should allow players to talk obscenely!” Hazel wrote in a statement posted on her Instagram account.
“Aren’t they human? Is someone standing at your work telling you something from the wall?”
“The NBA has the guts to have a complete code of conduct card about the fans in each seat and their behavior and how they can be kicked out or banned from a game. But the whole crowd / division / countless people. Can you call Dremond or B — H or MF (Mother —) ?! And nothing ?! Okay ?!
“Fans of Warriors will never do that !! My kids were at the game tonight hearing that mess! Too disgusting for your little Celtics fans. Just embarrassing!”

Green’s teammate Clay Thompson, who finished with a series-high 25 points in the 7-of-17 shooting, was also disappointed with Green’s reception.
“We’ve played in front of rude fans before. F-bombs with kids in the crowd. Really great. Boston is a good thing,” he told reporters.
Warriors coach Steve Ker jokingly called Green a “great” receptionist, and Green himself was not surprised by the slogan.
“They’re really just talking,” he said.
“It’s not my job to respond to them. They did what I expected.”
