Never one to pass up an opportunity for pettiness, the Warriors’ Draymond Green arrived at Game 2 of the Finals looking to remind everyone he started LeBron James’ now-infamous ‘shorts suit’ trend.
Before dropping 51 points in Thursday night’s game, James arrived at Oracle Arena sporting a $46,000+ outfit, complete with shorts and an alligator skin bag:

His outfit got mixed reviews, but the biggest note came from Green, who pointed out during media availability Sunday that he started the trend at last year’s NBA Awards show.

James sported a variation of the Game 1 look for Game 2. So as not to let him get all the attention, Green showed up to Game 2 carrying his son, wearing shorts and a suit jacket, with sneakers.

Have whatever opinions you want about the shorts suit, but you’ve got to give credit where credit is due.
