Golden State Warriors star forward Draymond Green has reportedly trademarked the “Hamptons 5” nickname given to the lineup of Green, Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala, according to TMZ Sports.

Per that report, “We noticed someone had filed for the ‘Hampton 5’ trademark in 2017 and a deeper dive revealed the man behind the application is Money 23 Green Enterprises … aka Draymond. The application was to use the trademark for everything from sports drinks to gym bags, cell phone cases, headphones, comic books, athletic wear and educational tools.”

The nickname “Hamptons 5” was coined by Tim Kawakami of The Athletic, who was referencing the foursome of Green, Curry, Thompson and Iguodala going to the Hamptons two summers ago to recruit Durant to Golden State.

And it’s been met with…mixed reviews:

It’s not clear as to why he trademarked “Hampton” instead of “Hamptons,” but singular/plural disagreements and geography aside, the “Hampton 5” remain the deadliest lineup in basketball. And maybe soon in merchandising as well.
