Draymond Green and Nik Stauskas are two of the top Big Ten players over the past decade, both winning Big Ten Player of the Year in their final seasons.
Green, a former Michigan State standout, and Stauskas, an ex-Michigan star, are taking advantage of this season's extended NBA All-Star break.
On Saturday, Green, along with former Spartans Gary Harris, Derrick Nix and Adreian Payne, attended the Ohio State-Michigan State game.
Tonight, Stauskas, not to mention Glenn Robinson III, will attend the Michigan State-Michigan game at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN.
The Wolverines have won the last four meetings in Ann Arbor, and Stauskas is feeling pretty confident. He sent out this tweet on Monday morning; Green, eventually, responded, and the two went on to have an entertaining Twitter battle.
Check out the Twitter back-and-forth below!
Stauskas has never seen Michigan State win at Crisler, because the Spartans haven't done it since 2010. Jan. 26, 2010, to be exact.
Green won at Michigan in 2009 and 2010 as a freshman and sophomore. And now, the two start to talk about what's on the line tonight.
Talking about Stauskas vs. Michigan State, remember this?
