Draymond Green reveals new Warriors banners, puts Noah Vonleh on blast

The Warriors' practice facility in San Francisco has a new look and Draymond Green is clearly a fan of one part.

On Saturday, Green posted a video to his Instagram story showing new banners of a montage to the team's 2016-17 championship run. One player who won't like the new images so much though is Blazers forward Noah Vonleh. 

Among the pictures in one of the banners is Green meeting Vonleh at the rim and rejecting him in Game 1 during Round 1 in the 2017 NBA Playoffs. In the video, Green says, "Alright Noah, watch out now," while laughing.

Because it never gets old, here's the video of the huge block.

The barbs won't stop.

Even after Kevin Durant won an NBA title with the Warriors, fans won't let him forget that he left the Thunder to join the best team in the NBA.

On Saturday, a fan from New Zealand wondered if Durant was set to join his college team, which, according to him, started its season 7-0.

Durant clapped back, offering advice for the young man.

The fan wasn't done.

"What do we have to do? Be the most dominant team in the league and beat you the year before? Or do you want us to blow a 3-1 lead?" Twitter user Morgan Tiare wrote back.

Durant got the last word.

The NBA Finals MVP is clearly having fun responding to Twitter trolls this offseason.
