It’s been a rough week for the Golden State Warriors.
At the end of regulation of Monday night’s Clippers-Warriors game, forward Draymond Green got into a heated altercation with teammate Kevin Durant after Durant was angry that Green didn’t pass him the ball during a crucial possession in the game.
During the argument, Green reportedly called Durant “a bitch” and challenged him over his pending free agency this summer

Late in regulation of the Warriors’ overtime loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, Green collected a rebound and ignored Durant’s call for the ball, instead dribbling upcourt into traffic and turning over the ball, which led to an argument with Durant that eventually spilled into the locker room after the game.
Green repeatedly called Durant “a bitch” after he was called out by the two-time NBA Finals MVP in the huddle for not passing him the ball, sources said. The organization is of the belief that Green cut too deep in his disagreement with Durant, sources said.
Klay Thompson, who is typically reserved, spoke up in the locker room to the surprise of his teammates about the altercation and stressed the importance of sticking together, sources said.
After serving a one-game suspension imposed by the team, Draymond finally addressed the situation with Durant and is trying to put all of the controversy behind him.
Kevin and I spoke, I think there’s no secret that I’m an emotional player, I wear my emotions on my sleeve, I play with that same emotion. Sometimes it gets the best of me and sometimes it doesn’t work in my favor, I’m gonna live with that because it works in my favor to the good,as my resume speaks and the team’s resume speaks, moreso than it doesn’t. I’m never going to change who I am. I’m going to approach the game as I always do and we’ll continue to move forward.
I’ve read that this the end of the run and did I ruin it and did I force Kevin to leave, you know at the end of the day as I’ve said before whatever Kevin decides to do, whatever Klay decides to do we had great years together and I support everybody wholeheartedly 100 percent.
But what you must know is that not one player, not myself, not Kevin, and not anybody else is going to beat us. If you’re one of the other 29 teams you gotta beat us because we’re not going to beat us.
