Whether or not the Warriors advance to their fifth consecutive NBA Finals, they'll still have plenty to fall back upon when it comes to talking trash.
Golden State minority owner Craig Johnson proved as much Monday when he flashed his three NBA championship rings to the Houston Rockets fans in his section during Game 4 of the NBA playoff second-round series. Mary Babers-Green, Draymond Green's mother and a prolific tweeter, was there to document the trash talk in Toyota Center.
Johnson was one of the investors in the Warriors' ownership group, led by Joe Lacob and Peter Guber, that bought the team in 2010.
The Warriors have knocked out the Rockets in three of the last four postseasons, including a seven-game series win over Houston in the Western Conference finals a year ago. Those playoff wins gave Johnson more than enough room to call scoreboard -- no matter the result of Monday's Game 4. Johnson channeling his inner Kobe Stan and counting the rings, then, is just rubbing it in.
