Things got a bit heated between Kevin Durant and Draymond Green last night when Green made an insanely dumb decision to run up the court with the ball in the final seconds of regulation in a tie game against the Clippers instead of passing it to Durant who was asking for the ball.
Durant and Green proceeded to yell at each other on the bench after the play.
The Warriors eventually lost the game to the Clippers and apparently several of Green’s teammates were pissed with the star forward.
The organization is taking seriously the fallout of Monday night’s confrontation, spending Tuesday working through the issues that may have been created — or even advanced — within the team’s dynamic, league sources said.
Teammates argued with Green over his choice in the final moments to keep the ball instead of passing to Durant for a try at a game-winning shot, sources said. Meanwhile, Green was forceful in defending himself, which helped to escalate the volume in the room, sources said.
According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, players are angry that Green called out Durant over his impending free agency decision during the heated confrontation.
Are the Warriors finally imploding? Could this be the beginning of the end? Crazy.
