Draymond Green and Steph Curry react to a play during a game against the Denver Nuggets.

Draymond Green has settled on a lot of points since he helped lead the Golden State Warriors to their fourth title in the past eight seasons, but the latest season may be the strangest – and much misunderstood. best.

Green has been controversial this week for some comments about teammate Steph Curry and his scoring ability after Kevin Durant joined Golden State. While Green is trying to make a point about Curry’s development as a player, it has been seen by many as a shot at the future Hall of Famer.

“The fact is, I don’t think that team would win another championship if Kevin [Durant] didn’t come,” Green said during an appearance on JJ Redick’s podcast, “The Old Man and The Three. “

“Personally, I don’t think at the time Steph Curry envisioned, ‘I’ll grab a bucket whenever I want,’” Green added. “I don’t think he can do that. I think he’s still growing like that. … We got to a point where we needed to be able to give someone a ball with just a bucket. And Kevin was there. I don’t think Steph was there.”

Green catches the heat for comment

Many people objected to Green’s comments, seeing them as a deepening of Curry’s offensive capabilities by the time Durant joined the Warriors. Nick Wright of “First Things First” accused Green of shooting his teammate to stir up drama.

Analyst Chris Broussard also countered Green’s argument, pointing out that Curry became the league’s first unanimous MVP of the season Green referenced.

“Steph is mature enough for Draymond’s comments to hit his back,” Broussard said. “But Draymond has no point. He said Steph couldn’t make his own shot – Steph averaged 30, he was a unanimous MVP that season. Looks like he’s fine.”

Green certainly hasn’t shied away from drama, joining Twitter with the Memphis Grizzlies’ Ja Morant and former player turned analyst Kendrick Perkins in the weeks since the Warriors won the NBA Finals.


Green shares his love for curry

Some believe the latest controversy is a matter of misunderstanding. SFGATE’s Zach Zafran notes that there is more context to the conversation that some reactionaries seem to have missed. During the discussion, Redick suggested that Durant did not get the proper credit for Golden State’s titles in 2017 and 2018, which led to Green’s comments about Curry.

“Green – who opened his match by recounting how his opponent’s defensive plans differed for Curry and Durant – did not knock Curry down but instead noted the importance of Durant’s role. ,” Zafran pointed out.

Later in the discussion, Green pointed out that Curry had faced doubles teams during those playoffs, which gave Durant easier hits. Green said he believes the tactics adopted against the Warriors prompted Curry to work on strength and expand his scoring ability.

“That’s where Steph turned the corner and he became unstoppable,” Green said. “And now we can go on to win championships because he’s unstoppable.”

Curry himself doesn’t seem to mind the situation, sharing some love for his teammates on his Instagram story shortly after Green’s comments.
