Golden State Warriors All-Star Draymond Green said getting suspended last November after an altercation with Kevin Durant caused Green to question his standing with the franchise and his relationship with general manager Bob Myers. “I started to tell myself in my mind, ‘Wow, [Myers is] flipping on me,'” Green told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on The Woj Pod during a joint interview with Myers. “And it just felt like, ‘Wow, OK, is this not the guy I’ve known for all these years? Is he turning on me?’ And I started to tell myself all of these things, and then and everybody’s like, ‘Oh my God, the Warriors sided with Kevin Durant.’ “That was the hardest thing for me, because a lot of people don’t understand me. Bob does.”

Storyline: Durant-Green Dynamic
Said Green: “I just had to accept the fact that I was wrong. And once I was able to get over my stubbornness and accept the fact that I was wrong, I was able to move on. I lost [Durant’s] trust. How do I get that back? Not so we can win a championship or we can win some games … but I actually loved this guy, like that’s really my brother. And so not knowing what’s next in our relationship bothered me more.

Spencer Dinwiddie’s meeting with lawyers from the NBA and Players Association over what he has named his Professional Athlete Investment Token (PAInT) went well enough for him to feel confident in moving forward with the project soon. “They had four or five comments previously, we got them down to one,” Dinwiddie said. “I think we’re going to get it done. It’s just pending a little more feedback. “Obviously there might be one more iteration, just of making sure they’re perfectly fine with it. Our goal was to partner and not to go to war. The good thing is obviously they see that we’re not breaking any rules, so it’s all about just kind of appeasing them as much as possible.”
