Simone Biles, one of the most decorated gymnasts of all time (and definitely in the GOAT conversation), didn’t find it at all amusing when SportsCenter tweeted an illustration with the caption “So many GOATs, who’s yours?” The illustration, which was drawn by an artist who goes by @dayxsleep on Instagram, included Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Muhammad Ali, Tom Brady, Tiger Woods and numerous others, plus actual goats.

Green’s unprompted three-minute press conference monologue contrasted Drummond’s situation to James Harden and Anthony Davis, who were both ridiculed by fans and media for their very public trade demands. Both got what they wanted
