The Golden State Warriors superstars Draymond Green and Kevin Durant got into an intense argument for the second time around this season. Some took it as a bad sign for the team especially with the Playoffs coming up. This resulted to several gossips that Durant would leave the squad even before the regular season ends.
Heated Game Was With Durant And Green
During their game against the Sacramento Kings, the Warriors grieved their eighth loss, 109-10. Head coach Steve Kerr was evicted in the third quarter and things did not end up well for the Dubs. Besides, Green was, of course, an upset which led him to yell at Durant during a break.
This was not the first time they had a quarrel over a game. Back in January, the Warriors lost in the hands of the Memphis Grizzlies. Green was once more disappointed expressly after they blew up a 24-point lead in the second half. Down to the last minute of the game, Stephen Curry could have carried the dagger. Though, Durant asked for the ball and wanted an isolation. This triggered the rage of Green, who wanted the team to stick with their pick-and-rolls gameplay.
Clearly, these happenings would lead to rumors that Green and Durant are not going along with each other very well. Some even say that the latter might even decide to leave the Bay after his argument with the Michigan State alumnus. Happily, Green already eased up the heat via his recent interview with ESPN.
What Really Happened Between Green And Durant
In a conference with Chris Haynes of ESPN, Green shared what was on him shouting at Kevin Durant. It was an attempt to "light a fire under" his teammate, Green said. He was "trying to use reverse psychology" so he "purposely and hostilely approached Durant with a crowd of choice of words during a break." Last of all, Green told the reporter, "It was, in fact, a tactic. But that's for just to know and for everyone else to work out."Inappropriately, the attempt to fire him up did not work. Durant only had 10 points at the end of the game on a 2-of-10 field goal shooting.
On a good side, everything seems to be fine now. As per Bleacher Report, Durant and Green even watched the Super Bowl LI together. Positively, the Golden State Warriors have the best standings in the NBA, so they should be okay for now. Golden State will host the Chicago Bulls next game at Oracle Arena Wednesday, February 8 at 10:30 p.m. EST.
