After there is bad blood between the two after the departure of Kevin Durant from the Golden State Warriors in 2019, Draymond Green expresses his affection for the NBA forward.
The Golden State Warriors will go down in history for having had one of the best teams and dynasties in the NBA. Before Kevin Durant arrived, they were the best team with Stephen Curry , Draymond Green and Klay Thompson at the helm.
When KD was added, if all four were healthy, they won. This is what happened when they reached three consecutive NBA Finals between 2017 and 2019, achieving two titles in that period. But the forward’s departure to the Brooklyn Nets left a great controversy and unknown.
The reasons were, among others, a rupture in the relationship between KD and Green in a regular season game against the Los Angeles Clippers . Both later revealed that the management of this situation by the board also influenced the separation of that Dream Team.
Draymond Green and Kevin Durant, friends for life
But, like two adults, they understood that this was only an anger of the moment and the grudges were left behind. This week, Draymond stopped by Carmelo Anthony’s podcast ‘What’s in your glass?’ and clarified the status of his relationship with the Nets # 7.
“I know if something’s f–ked up with me, I can turn to him. And vice versa. He know, no matter what the situation is, if he f–ked up or anything, he can turn to me, and you don’t get that s–t often, you know what I’m saying? And so I’m not just going to take that for granted. And so, I felt like it would be great for us to have that conversation publicly, because I publicly f–ked it up. … And so, I wanted to have that conversation publicly because people publicly saw it, and they needed to, No. 1, understand that we are brothers and amongst Black men, we can reconcile. We can figure things out. We can talk our problems out and get back to where we need to be, which I think is important for our youth in understanding that. And then I also felt like he was ready to talk about it. I’m sick of hearing everybody’s narrative that was wrong. And the reality is that I think he was sick of hearing everybody’s narratives that was wrong as well.”, said the Warrior, which shows that despite everything, the past was left behind and they were able to rebuild a friendship that could be seen at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
