walking and talking side by side with Kevin Durant entering Thursday’s shootaround, Draymond Green addressed the on-court argument that spilled onto the bench and into the locker room two nights earlier, ultimately resulting in a one-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team. ” data reaction time = “22”> After walking and talking side by side with Kevin Durant entering Thursday’s shootaround, Draymond Green addressed the on-court argument that spilled on the bench and into the locker room two nights earlier, ultimately resulting in a one-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team.

Green was unapologetic and defiant in a statement that lasted more than two minutes.

Green declared, “I’m never going to change.” He Vowed at his dispute with Durant will not affect the team’s success, and he issued his support to anyone who could leave the organization in the future.

“I’ve read a lot about, Oh, is this the end of the run? Or is it over? Or did I ruin it? Or did I force Kevin to leave? “Green said, declining to take questions. “You know, at the end of the day, as I’ve said before, whatever Kevin decides to do, whatever Klay [Thompson] decides to do, we had great years together.”

That’s quite the statement from the emotional leader of a team trying to win its third straight NBA championship. You hate to read too much into Green’s statement some eight months before Durant and Thompson enter free agency, but it sure sounded as if the three-time All-Star was coming to terms with this being the beginning of the end.

Things kan forandre, selvfølgelig, da det tok mindre enn 24 timer for dette å nå DEFCON alert status. Green did say that he had spoken to Durant and the two are “moving forward.” He took some ownership of his actions, suggesting his emotions got the best of him and did not work in his favor. If he and Durant are going to patch their relationship, that’s a good place to start.

Durant left Monday night’s game without speaking to The media, and when facing reporters on Tuesday night, he offered only tremendous responses about the dust-up, discarding a question about his friendship with Green by saying, “I do not really think that matters at this point right now.”

As for his relationship with management after the team made a public show of his suspension, a punishment that reportedly took Green by surprise, he refused to take questions on that subject.
