CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Let's face it, many Cleveland Cavaliers fans probably felt like taking a shot at Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green during the playoffs.

Kent State University student Connor McKenney created a Facebook page Tuesday night proposing a parade in honor of Tristan Thompson after reports he punched Green after the ESPYs.

McKenney said he does not condone violence.

"No, I don't wish any serious injury upon him. Even on teams we don't like, or players who have injured our players. It's just poking fun at it. Maybe he punched him, maybe he didn't."

To honor Thompson, McKenney wants to have a parade at Quicken Loans Arena on Oct. 13. That's because 13 is Thompson's number.

"Hopefully Draymond hears about it," McKenny said.

If a parade of this nature sounds familiar, McKenney attended the Browns Perfect Season Parade.  He said he wants to plan a similar event that would raise money for charity.

"I think Tristan, outside of punching Draymond Green has done a lot of things where he has contributed to the city.  Kevin Love has too, we'll get on that," he said.
