Golden State Warriors Rumors
Durant told Green he wasn’t accepting the emotional excuse. Green’s fire is what makes him great even if it also makes him volatile. But Durant wasn’t buying that it’s uncontrollable. He’s seen Green control it. He’s seen him keep his composure in the crucible of championship stakes. He’s seen him locked in and focused, forcing his emotions to submit to his will. So Durant challenged him to be better. Green accepted.
It was in this forum, the proper one, where Green explained his free-agency concerns with Durant. And Durant explained himself. He told Green how he could’ve been more communicative but that he is just used to letting his actions speak for him. Durant shows how he feels by his work ethic, how he pours himself into his teammates. He shows he is all-in by being all-in, putting in the time, making sacrifices for the team and playing with all his heart.
Green is hoping no matter what, in 20 years, when they are older and gray, they will call each other friends and it will be real. “It’s very rare,” Green said of what he and Durant have. “Obviously, we had a good relationship and then to go through something like we went through and still come out of that with a great relationship, that’s special. Those are the relationships you have for life. My deepest relationships that I have is, like, with people that I went through shit with. It could’ve been a bad argument. It could’ve been ready to go to blows. Those are my best relationships because you go through something and then you come out on the other side and y’all are tighter and better for it. Those are the special relationships.”
Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson had a shooting display to remember on Monday. The 28-year-old guard set an NBA record by knocking down his first 10 three-pointers against the Lakers in Los Angeles. Thompson did not miss a shot from behind the arc until there were three minutes, 55 seconds to play in the third quarter.
Nick Friedell: DeMarcus Cousins on Klay Thompson’s performance: “That’s Klay. I think we’re all used to it now. It was 10 straight? S***. That’s impressive. Man, it’s like a new record every day, ain’t it?”
Ryan Ward: Klay Thompson on what got him going: “I don’t know. I was having one of those nights. It’s the best percentage I’ve ever shot, but it just happened to be one of those nights. It’s hard to explain it.” #Warriors
Ryan Ward: Kevin Durant on Klay Thompson’s shooting performance: “Anything Steph, Klay, Draymond, Cuz do at this point, it’s just kind of expected. When he has a big game, it’s just like, ‘Alright, let’s move onto the next one.’ I’m sure he’ll have another big game real soon.” #Warriors
