Ja Morant and Draymond Green recently created a Twitter beef, challenging each other and agreeing to play in the holiday season should the NBA arrange it that way.
In addition, the rivalry between the Warriors and Grizzlies is expected to intensify, as Memphis will seek revenge following their elimination from the Western Conference Finals in May.
For its part, Golden State will aim to show they are the better team and shut the Grizzlies down for good.
The reigning champions will also tip off the season, taking on the Los Angeles Lakers at Chase Center on October 18.
ESPN/ABC’s Christmas Day slate, competing against three NFL games that Sunday, is thus expected to feature a playoff rematch between the Grizz and defending champion Warriors + LeBron James’ Lakers coming to Dallas to face Luka Dončić and the Mavs.
