However, it might not be for the reasons he’d like.
Green is always a loud, brash, in-your-face character and these Finals have been no different.
So far, he’s scored 15 points and has racked up 15 personal fouls too.
And he’s gotten into a few in-game tiffs against other players – and NBA analysts too.

The latest person he’s getting into it with is New Orleans Pelicans guard CJ McCollum.
McCollum is now doing sports analysis and made his opinion about these Finals known, telling Green that he predicted the Celtics would win the Finals.
Green shot back, saying, “That’s fine. Those Celtics will still be ringless just like you.”
That’s definitely tough talk from Green but should he rather be focused on winning rather than fighting?
Not So Golden Green
Green averages 8.7 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 5.4 assists a game for his career and is known to have a strong presence on the floor no matter who the Warriors are playing against.
However, he’s having a tough go during these Finals.
Right now he has as many fouls as points and has been missing threes and twos left and right.
When his team needs him most, Green isn’t playing as he usually does.
He has every right to defend his team and stand up for their chances winning the Finals.
But he should also be doing everything he can to bring up his production on the floor and really assist his squad.
Perhaps less time picking fights with other players and commentators and more time working on his shot?
However, he will get the last laugh if the Warriors really do pull out the win – without or without his help.
