Draymond Green: Because the first couple weeks of training camp I was struggling bad. Taking bad shots, turning the ball over. It just wasn’t me. I’m trying to prove that I can do this, I can do that, because I was worried about that. And I talked to them, talked to Bob (Myers) and B.J. Armstrong, my agent, and it was just, ‘Be you, you do what you’ve got to do and that’ll take care of itself.’ So at this point I don’t think about it at all. I can honestly say that without lying. Obviously you’re reading stuff on the internet and you’re on Twitter and that’s just this in day in age. But going on the floor? Thinking I need to get this number to get this amount of dollars… I don’t think about it one bit. It’s so fun playing with this team. You’ve got seize this moment. You don’t get to play with a team like this all the time. San Jose Mercury-News

Q: Can you imagine leaving this group? I guess that must hit you that you wouldn’t want to, all things being equal. Draymond Green: Exactly. And who knows what the future holds? So I’m going to enjoy this team because it’s so fun to play with these guys, so fun. Obviously winning helps that; it’s a great coaching staff, great organization. Just live in this moment and enjoy this year. All that stuff will take care of itself. You know, if I sit and worry about it July 1st isn’t coming any faster than it’s coming, anyway. I’ll just enjoy playing with this team–it’s so fun being out there, practice, whatever. It’s hard to sit and think about your contract because you’re having so much fun, you get lost in these moments. I lose myself in these moments because it’s so fun, it’s so enjoyable, it’s a great atmosphere. To think about my contract, I’d be doing myself a disservice. San Jose Mercury-News

Golden State forward Draymond Green, unhappy with a 100-86 loss to the Clippers on Thursday night, said the Warriors "were too nice" and should have keyed more on the teams' oft-contentious rivalry. "I don't know what the cause of it was, maybe everybody was a little too jolly, Christmas spirit," said Green, who had 10 points and 10 rebounds in 34 minutes. "But it was too nice. It was boring."

And then there is Green’s ears perking up when something is said about him that he doesn’t particularly like. For instance, Avery Johnson on SportsCenter after the Warriors lost at Memphis had words that Green remembers. “Funny guy,” Green said of Johnson. “Funny guy. Jalen Rose is a funny guy, too. “It’s funny to me. They just keep lighting that fuel and adding more fuel to the fire.” Rose, who played at Michigan and rival school of Green’s alma mater Michigan State, said earlier this month while largely praising Green that, “Draymond Green I don’t think he would be in the league if he wasn’t in the right place at the right time and get developed.” Contra Costa Times

Pelicans forward Dante Cunningham said he spoke to NBA officials and said the league is investigating two separate second-quarter incidents involving him in Sunday’s game against Golden State. Both Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green were struck in their face inadvertently by Cunningham on two separate plays. Barnes suffered a nasal fracture, a chipped tooth and had a mouth laceration that required stitches. He did not return after he left the game holding a towel to his mouth with 10:29 remaining in the second quarter. Green suffered a bloody nose after catching Cunningham’s elbow just before halftime. However, he returned to play in the second half to help spark the Warriors to a 128-122 overtime victory that extended their winning streak to 16 consecutive games. New Orleans Times-Picayune

“Who better than him…at the point guard spot,” Green said. “I don’t know someone that’s better than him, so I definitely think he’s taken over that top spot at the point guard spot. Obviously, with winning comes accolades, so we keep continuing to win, all that stuff will take care of itself.” “He’ll be an All-Star. He’ll be all that stuff. You continue to win games, and those wins add up, it’ll be hard to deny him the MVP.” Contra Costa Times
