The Draymond-Durant fight can be the end of the Warriors.



OAKLAND – I wrote a story about how to keep the water around the team almost calm, although the Warriors have big names, big games, and bigger rosters.

I wondered how some passive aggressiveness and patriotism that hit the Rockets, Timberwolves, Wizards, and Lakers this season influenced the NBA's time. Despite the bold and inconsistent chances with the Warriors, the familiar cast.

The next Monday took place. Bad weather followed on Tuesday.

Much to the story – disorder arrived at the warriors' house.

Do not make mistakes. Draymond Green and Kevin Durant's starting pitcher in Los Angeles was not as passionate or business as usual. Since the Warriors played him in the game against the Atlanta Hawks, the salary does not decrease when the salary falls or the end of the game ends, as Green did on Tuesday.

General managers Bob Myers and Steve Kerr – two of the most open people in basketball – did not stick to the regular strikes as they did at a press conference before Tuesday's game. (Myers did not hold a press conference if it was normal.)

And because of regular inconsistencies in some paid words, Warriors' GM and coaches do not seem to be emotionally bogged down on Tuesday.

No, this is bigger. This is a real deal drama – it's kind of full of NBA lately. The Warriors have searched professionally over the past few seasons.

When is the end of the dynasty?

If Durant is leaving for FA next summer – there is no title or no title – there is no doubt that the Staples Center case will be considered a turning point.

Ultimately, only time can tell how everything is failing.

But now things are not good and it is not easy to get around at any time.

It can be said without interruption that Green crossed the line on Monday. The spats carried over from the bench to the locker room after the game are definitely pretty tough. Things – rough things you can not do.

Walking was stopped before the game with the Hawks, and the green came from Oracle Arena. Durant was still passive about the situation. After the game, Green and Green did not speak because they did not talk.

No matter how long the gap between the two is, the conclusion that Green and Durant can not reconcile will be too aggressive.

But just "probably".

Eco-friendly and Durant have spent so much time together for 3 years and are good friends. Their relationship has not collapsed after that incident.

So some Warriors say (in fact, actually believe) that the situation will eventually be fine between the two.

That's how it works: green burns and demands the best from everyone, especially Durant. Sometimes the best talent of Durant comes back to him.

But this is different. This is the next step.

After Monday night's dust builds up, I send Green's famous 4 pm afternoon message to Durant. It was another time that Green and Durant could not keep an eye on the Warriors playoff series with Ferrer. (I was told that the famous text was not as compassionate as some people did.)

Do you have both that case and Monday? Stephen Curry.

And it got me thinking again what Curry said last week. We talked about a constant culture of Warriors. (Indeed novel concept …)

When Kerr was in charge of Warrior Watch coaching five years ago, he wanted to establish a culture of joy and competitiveness. There is a tough line to walk, no doubt, but it is someone who believes that he best reflects his personality.

"I just have to be myself, we play basketball for a living, how lucky is it," Kerr said. "But also, I want to win so badly."

"How do we catch all that? Let's go to the floor with competition, joy and wisdom, and keep in mind your teammates, all of these things mattered to me.After the first few weeks when I came here, , I just described Stephen Curry, a way to be more fun, talented, and creative. "

This Durant Green situation is definitely fun and enjoyable. You did not have to try to listen to it on Tuesday to hear it, but it definitely ruined your home. He was not himself.

"I decided Steph's approach would determine the hue and get the best from everyone as a result of that tone," Kerr told me last week. "Steph brings a kind of childlike zest to the gym every day, and it's amazing how he loves life, loves life so much, and how it affects our lives here. I try to pull that thing off as an employee – I create that atmosphere. "

"I think we should be recognized for many merits in the way we do business."

Curry 's two players did not score well, and Durant and Green were the biggest beneficiaries of the curry' s joy.

"I think Kevin is a perfect fit here, Kevin is an incredibly hardworking person, and if we can only help you with what you enjoy, enjoy the process. This helps Draymond, "Kerr said. "Draymond loves to have fun, he and I have fallen into it from time to time over the years, but we are always kind of a pleasure, a pleasure, a man – our – lucky to return to our norms of our joy – Here is the atmosphere. [coaches] I try to project, but to me it starts with Steph. "

The identity of the Warriors court begins with Curry, whose absence appears to have played an important role on Monday tiff.

Warriors lost Curry's joy ahead of the closing of the regulations and were able to translate Durant (the contrasting style) and Green (director of the Church in Pace and Space) in any era, with a sharp focus on the final play come.

When Green returned the ball, he wanted to adhere to the ideals of the Warriors that flourished in chaos. The curry works much better when played, but it is the identity of a warrior established over the last five years.

Meanwhile, Durant wanted the ball, presuming he was willing to try Game 3 style shooting on Clippers' face.

None of the options are bad. Kerr was passive with Green instead of calling the Warriors last time limit. Nonetheless, issues arising from the play are due to the results.

When Durant asked for it through a series of applause, Green of course lost the ball and the Warriors and Clippers went to extra time.

Green is usually a member of the team, but like many of us, he does bad things that do not anticipate his anxiety when challenged. This is not a new development.

Monday's poor ending of the game, when the Warrior dynasty ended almost at the end of the fifth round of the Western Conference finals on Monday, has brought back memories of his failure. Play that Green is still trying to overcome.

He applauded.

But the fact that Durant (Green) has to say more and more aggressively to his face after playing makes it easy to see how things got bloated.

There was no joy anywhere. The carefree head did not win. The situation is spiraling. The nearest Warriors were when Greene Curve and Green at that moment asked Greene to fight his coach (along with other unprintable ones) when he visited Green in 2016 at the visitor locker room in Oklahoma City.

It all led to the suspension of Tuesday. This team is one of the greatest teams of all time.

(Jose Carlos Fazardo / Bay Area News Group)

Green has reported several times that there is a problem with Durant's free agency (free agency) in the collecting or locker room after the game. There is a reason to believe it is true. I'm not surprised, either. Green is a world-class garbage chatterbox. It is a specialist who finds weaknesses. (I have experienced it myself.) Durant's waiting FA hung him and his team like a cloud.

This is a weakness of the Durant Wyatt team.

The reason for the Durant Guy team is – because he may leave, because he feels a little personal for Warren's recruit for the All-Star Advance. Green knew that the warrior needed a KD after losing to the Cavs in the 2016 NBA Finals. Green is about titles – his personal legacy and Warrior legacy are tied together. If you sign a deal with Durant, the Warriors will be on the title track for years to come.

At the same time, Durant acknowledged that he had to learn to play at a higher level by contracting with Warriors, and at least admitted that he was willing to accept the fiery nature of Green with Warriors.

Perhaps Green knows that Durant is being done. – Just as LeBron has spent four years in Miami, he has the greatest accomplishments ever, and he has learned everything he can to do with this experience and is ready to move on, effectively ending the Warrior dynasty.

Perhaps all of these agreements would have been held before Monday.

Maybe that's why Green was suspended. The executives were trying to keep him with the freelancers.

Once again, my mind goes to comment on Kerr's various situations last week.

And I – if this bad situation bubbled down from the surface and exploded on Monday – I think he knew better and must go ahead.

After all Kerr was a member of the second three-peat Champion Bulls team. That trifecta began with Michael Jordan punching Kerr in the training camp in 1995 and the team ended with breaking in 1998 spectacular fashion.

Kerr 's experience with the team revealed a self – fulfilling prophecy that last season will be difficult.

This was different because the team decided it was "right" by ownership and control. We got results that beat everything, but at the end we ran to smoke. "Kerr said, the idea is to keep it going for years, and we have tremendous ownership to write everything that it takes."

"Our players know, yes, we have free agents, they see what management has done to everyone in this room, and what they will continue to do – not management, ownership or coaching, We are the only ones. "

"Hey, let's enjoy this. It's a utopia. It's not a standard in the NBA."

But after a rare but unabashed uproar over the last 24 hours, you should ask: "Are warriors destined to follow the path of the Bulls?

Is it still a utopia?

That's when warriors, especially Green and Durant, decide over the next few weeks.
