But amid swirling rumors that there was serious interest between both parties last season, Draymond Green got things started nearly immediately after the season ended. All the little antics and stuff don't matter.
According to the ABC broadcast, Green's name was down for the first technical and it was only changed after he was handed the second one.
Just saying the name of Golden State forward Draymond Green causes many Cleveland fans to seethe with rage.
And nobody knows that better than Green. In all, five players committed technical fouls in the third - James and Iman Shumpert from the Cavaliers and Kevin Durant, Green and Zaza Pachulia from the Warriors. He waved his arms in frustration at an official after being called for fouling Kevin Love and was hit with the tech, which would have triggered an automatic ejection. They hadn't paid enough attention in the first quarter to notice that the public address announcer had mistakenly announced Green as the recipient of the first-quarter technical foul.
No announcement was ever made correcting the error, not that Green was listening for one. And then, without announcing anything, Green remained in the game, and play resumed - leaving everyone who wasn't on the court confused as to what had actually taken place.
"I don't pay much attention to anybody in Cleveland, honestly", he said.

Muthusamy tied for 22th place a year ago and Singh was the youngest speller in the 2013 competition. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that one of the words she had to spell correctly was "nasopharynx".
For several minutes, however, the only people who seemed to know that in the entire arena were the three officials.
"I knew I didn't have a technical foul (from the first quarter)", Green said.
But Green stood stoically on the floor, then egged on the crowd to raise the decibel level of their jeers toward him.
This isn't the first time Green has called out Cavaliers fans.
"But I'm still trying to figure out why did I get the "second" one". Last season, they established a Finals record as the first team to ever come back from a 3-1 deficit and shock the Warriors in seven games. "In the moment, I thought I had verbalized to the table that the technical foul was on coach Kerr".
NBA TV's post-game coverage played this off like the only people who weren't confused by the sequence of technicals were Golden State's coaches and players, but this is bogus. "But I thought I heard the announcer say, the P.A. announcer say, that it was on Draymond". "I take full responsibly for that".
