NLB NEWS : Cleveland Cavaliers’ Twitter Calls Out Warriors For Using “Defend Our Ground”

The Golden State Warriors began their journey back to the NBA Finals yesterday afternoon with a 121-109 win over the Blazers at Oracle Arena, in which fans in attendance received shirts that read, “Defend Our Ground.”

No issue there, right? Just your basic “protect this house” type slogan for the fans to rally behind. Not so fast.
Cleveland Cavaliers fans were quick to point out that Golden State’s new slogan is eerily similar to the Cavs’ mantra, “Defend The Land,” which somehow morphed into a “Ground vs. Land” roast on twitter.

Check out some of the reactions to the Warriors’ “Defend Our Ground” t-shirts below
