The Golden State Warriors have won the 2022 NBA Finals, securing their fourth championship in seven years and silencing a lot of doubters. There’s no secret that the Warriors and Memphis Grizzlies developed a rivalry in the last season, but even after the season officially concluded, the exchanges are still going on.

The timeline begins with a tweet from Jaren Jackson Jr. on March 28 after the Grizzlies’ victory over Golden State. Jackson tweeted “Strength In Numbers” as a nod to the longtime slogan for the Warriors during their run of success over the last few years. Klay Thompson referenced this in his Game 6 postgame presser after the Warriors won the title saying, “Strength in numbers is alive and well.”

Thompson said during the post-game press conference, “There was this one player on the Grizzlies who tweeted ‘Strength in numbers’ after they beat us in the regular season, and it pissed me off so much. I can’t wait to retweet that thing. Freakin’ bum. I had to watch that. I’m just like, ‘This freakin’ clown.’

Morant agreed to the proposition but decided to put his own twist to it, suggesting that the Warriors play in Memphis, although the defending champions usually play at home, a fact that Green was quick to remind the young star of.
