Petty Grizzlies plaster ‘reality check’ quote from rival Warriors star Draymond Green up in their weight room for motivation three months after Golden State knocked Memphis out of the playoffs
- The Warriors triumphed over the Grizzlies in their Conference semifinal series
- The controversial six-game series sparked a heated dispute between the teams
- Draymond Green claimed the Grizzlies were ‘going to get their reality check’
- Jaren Jackson Jr.’s TikTok revealed Memphis have the quote in the weight room
The rivalry between the Warriors and the Grizzlies raged on Friday as it was revealed Memphis is using a Draymond Green quote for motivation.
The two teams clashed in the Western Conference semifinals last postseason and tempers flared off court as the Warriors triumphed in six games.
Memphis’ Jaren Jackson Jr. has now shared a TikTok video revealing the Grizzlies have the Green quote written on a blackboard in their weight room, which reads: ‘Memphis is going to get their reality check.’

The revelation comes after a heated dispute between the two teams last season, which began during their Western Conference semifinal series when both sides accused each other of ‘breaking the code’ by committing egregiously hard fouls.
Grizzlies star Ja Morant seemingly accused Jordan Poole of ‘breaking the code’ in a now-deleted tweet after suffering a knee injury during Game 3 of the controversial six-game series.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr previously said that Dillon Brooks had broken the code in Game 2 with a Flagrant Foul Penalty 2 on Gary Payton II, who fractured his left elbow after being hit in the head from behind by Brooks.

The trash talk didn’t end with the series as Morant and Green dragged it into the offseason.
Morant claimed that Memphis lives ‘rent-free’ in the defending champions’ heads in an interview with Bleacher Report.
Green responded to Morant’s comments on his podcast where he slammed the Warriors’ rivals for their ‘different level of oblivion’.
‘Now, talking s*** to the team that won a championship after they beat you after they win a championship is an entirely different level of oblivion,’ he said on the Draymond Green Show.

‘It doesn’t get much more oblivious than that. And I think for them, you’re now going to be expected to do that. You’re now going to be expected to win these games. And it’s not as easy when teams are coming for you.
‘And so I think now, they’re going to get their reality check. And it’s not that they will still be able to win. They may still be able to win, but they’re going to realize how much harder it is for them to win.
‘And now because they’re talking the way they’re talking, they better lose that oblivion, because they better understand these moments now are huge.’
It appears those remarks made their way back to Memphis with the quote now in the Grizzlies’ weight room to get them fired up ahead of the next season.
