If Draymond Green gets the chance to troll someone, he will take it, and Christmas presented him the perfect opportunity.
With NBA players around the league breaking out custom Christmas shoes, Green wore a pair with a not-so-subtle shot at LeBron James.

Green’s shoes sport the cartoon character Arthur in a Santa Claus hat next to a Christmas tree. This is an obvious troll of James, whose use of an Arthur meme on Instagram incited a social-media war with Green in early November.
After the Cavaliers’ 4-6 start to the season and a stellar performance by former Cleveland guard Kyrie Irving, James posted an image on Instagram of Arthur with a clinched fist and the caption “Mood” below.
Green, of course, takes note of most everything James does and tweeted out the next day after a Warriors win an Instagram post of his own. An enthusiastic Green is shown with the caption “Mood” below. It’s an obvious “nod” to James, which did not go unnoticed.
But don’t think Green will let something die. Now we’ll see how James responds on the court.
