Draymond Green On Haters Doubting Warriors To Make Playoffs: ‘That’s crazy to me…’

Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green heard some of the rumors about his team and the end of the Warriors dynasty.

That’s crazy to me,” he said.

Green can’t really understand the people who say that the Warriors won’t make the playoffs this season. Yes, they lost Kevin Durant and traded Andre Iguodala, but that doesn’t mean that Steph Curry and Green can’t play. D’Angelo Russell joined the team, and they won’t have that much trouble coping with Durant’s loss. Klay Thompson is injured, but he will return at some point.

Curry had a similar reaction to all the rumors.

I just laugh at it,” he said during his second annual Warriors All-Girls basketball camp in Oakland on Monday afternoon. “Anybody can say anything about anything nowadays and it can pick up steam. So we’ve had lots of support. We’ve had a lot of criticism on the way that doesn’t change now. Just what they’re saying is different so doesn’t change how we go about our business.”

He believes that his teammates will learn how to play alongside each other. They will have to build the game again, and that’s fine with Curry.

“It’s just a matter of really trying to get guys comfortable with the system, be able to highlight the different skill sets that we have and different strengths and the chemistry,” the Warrior said. “It will take a little bit of time and a lot of hard work, but like I said, we have a lot of high IQ guys from our core and a lot of leadership and commitment to what we do, so starting in the training camp and beyond, you have to have a mindset that you will continue to get better as the season goes on.”

Leaving the Oakland facility won’t be an easy move for the Warriors.

“It’s still always bittersweet for sure,” Curry said. “Cause I guess I’ve spent 10 years here. I remember my first training camp with Don Nelson and Kelenna Azubuike and the whole roster and 10 years later for guys that have come through this organization … It’s just weird and different but exciting for sure.”
