Players must carry even more responsibility to uphold the standard to “keep the ship sailing,” as Green put it. It’s just another lesson he learned from Michigan State coach Tom Izzo. “That’s myself, that’s Steph (Curry), that’s (Andrew) Bogut, that’s Andre (Iguodala), that’s us as leaders,” he said. “If something isn’t going right, we have to step up. At the end of the day, Luke can do it and he will do it, but anytime you can get something from another player, it’s better. Coach Izzo always had a saying, `A player-coached team is always better than a coach-coached team.’ ”
But when asked his opinion for his biggest challenger for the crown, Green had an interesting answer. Appearing on ESPN radio’s Freddie Coleman Show, Green singled out Thunder superstar forward Kevin Durant. “You know who I always thought (was a great trash-talker), but has been under the radar, I think Kevin Durant,” Green said. “Lotta people don’t know that. But if you play against him you know.” What does Durant say? “KD makes you feel bad about yourself, that you ever talked junk,” Green said. “It’s the funniest thing in the world.”
The Warriors have some tendencies, we know some things about Barnes, and here are some baseline themes to consider while this works its way into whatever it works out to… 1–It’s not even October yet, and this Warriors management historically brings the negotiations for these deals until right before the deadline, which for these talks, is Oct. 31. That’s how they did the Stephen Curry rookie-deal extension, that’s how they did the Klay Thompson rookie-deal extension, and that’s generally how they did the Draymond Green extension this summer–hours after he had become a restricted free agent and could negotiate with other teams (but didn’t).

Fortunately for you, your deal got done pretty quickly and all along it was pretty clear you would be going back to the Warriors. What was your free agency process like? Draymond Green: “It wasn’t much. I talked to one other team and that was really not a serious conversation at all [because] I knew where I wanted to be. I knew where I was going to be and my focus was to have my agent, B.J. Armstrong, work with the Warriors and get a deal done. That was the main focus. I talked to Joe [Lacob]. I talked to Peter [Guber]. I knew where I was going to be, I knew where home was, and we got it done. It was great that the Warriors stepped up to the plate and got it done in the fashion that they did, where I didn’t have to sign an offer sheet or anything like that and we just got the deal done. It says a lot about the Warriors as an organization, it says a lot about Peter and Joe as an ownership group, it says a lot about the front office with Bob [Myers], Kirk [Lacob], and Travis [Schlenk] and everyone else. I’m one of their guys and they stepped up to the plate and got it done. That meant a lot to me.”
