As the Warriors make their way through yet the postseason gauntlet, Draymond Green has been taking the time to fire off some texts to another one of the league's formest front-line players — and trash talkers — one Joel Embiid.

Way back in November, Embiid, who oozes confidence on the floor and off it, took a jab at Draymond in advance of a Warriors-Sixers meeting.

“I mean, I saw Draymond this summer and I told him I was gonna kick his (expletive), so I can’t wait to play against him. I love the way he talks trash, and I feel like I’m kind of the same so it’s gonna be a fun battle, especially going against Steph, Klay, KD, I still haven’t played against them, so I’m excited.”

Green got the best of Embiid, holding the Sixers phenom to a 4-for-11 night from the field and a -9 finish while putting up 10 points, 10 rebounds and 7 assists on the Eastern Conference upstarts.

The trash talk between the pair of bigs was all in good fun…
