Golden State Warriors Rumors
In an interview with USA Today, Warriors forward Draymond Green said that while he’ll talk to Durant plenty this weekend, he doesn’t plan to pitch him on joining the Warriors. “He’s third in the West right now with an incredible record,” Green said. “It obviously (flies) under the radar because we’ve lost four and San Antonio has lost eight. But I think they’re like 40-14 or something like that, that’s an incredible record. So he’s not trying to recruit us, and we’re not trying to recruit him.
Curry doesn’t hide from it: The Warriors want that record. “There’s not many opportunities that you probably have to go after that record,” Curry said Friday to CNN’s Andy Scholes. “Obviously, going to win a championship, that’s the main goal. But there’s a reason that we’re still talking about that ’95-’96 Bulls team that was able to accomplish the 72-and-10 record. They were on a mission that year and ended up winning the championship as well. So that’s kind of where we want to be. “But when you have a shot at history and being the best regular-season team in the history of the NBA, I think you’ve got to go for it.”
“It’s been a historical journey and start,” Curry said. “We’ve got a lot more to accomplish. But just the ride that we’re on and the way that we’re gelling and find(ing) a way to win games has been amazing.
The Golden State Warriors need a 25-5 finish after the All-Star Game to break the NBA’s all-time single-season record of 72 wins. And at least one Warrior says they will indeed be going for it. “Oh, we will,” Warriors guard Klay Thompson told ESPN Radio on Friday.
NBA All-Star Media Day is prime time for questions from reporters who often don’t cover the NBA day to day. So one reporter asked a sort of offbeat question about if he had made any bad business investments. “Hopefully the best one’s coming soon, I’ve got a couple of things working right now. I haven’t made too many bad ones yet. Still young,” he said. “I dabbled in real estate, too early. Before I knew what I was doing. So I have a couple of properties that aren’t doing too well. So if anyone’s in the market for a nice 3-bedroom house in the greater Charlotte area, you let me know.”
