Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green went at it with former NBA guard Tony Allen on Twitter after Green claimed he is the greatest defender in NBA history.

Allen fired back at Green’s claim, questioning who made him think that he was the greatest defender ever.

Green then threw a subtle shot at Allen, who the Warriors beat in their first championship run.

Green, a three-time NBA champion, claimed that the Warriors used Allen against his own team (the Memphis Grizzlies at the time) because of his lack of offensive ability.

Allen didn’t let it end there. He came back at Green claiming that he is now the liability, saying that the Warriors are playing a man down in games.

Both Green and Allen are terrific defenders, but it seems the two won’t just agree to disagree.

Allen was a six-time All-Defensive selection and won a title with the Boston Celtics.

As for Green, he was the 2016-17 NBA Defensive Player of the Year and is a three-time All-Star.

Both players have impressive resumes, but clearly Green thinks he belongs on top of the league’s long list of elite defenders.
