Draymond Green, the Warriors' voice in the media thanks to his podcast, launched a fresh attack on KD leaving the franchise to team up with Kyrie Irving on the Brooklyn Nets.
Green said (via Yahoo Sports),“There’s always things you want to prove. Ultimately, when Kevin came here, the main person who has to sign off on that is Steph. So to
open your door, to open your arms and accept someone with open arms, and it goes great and it’s short-lived, it’s a slap in the face."
DG further added,“Not necessarily a slap in the face, when someone chooses to do something else. But a slap in the face like, ‘I opened my home to you. I brought you into this. I made you a
part of this. I wanted you to be a part of this until we couldn’t do it no more. Then when you wanna do something else.’ No hard feelings, no ill will, want you to do great no matter what. It’s a brotherhood.
“But … you’re a competitor and the competitor in you is going to want to prove you wrong, want to show you that you made a mistake.”
While KD is secure in the knowledge that he is a champion and one of the best scorers the game has seen, this one surely has to sting a little bit for the Nets man.
And while things may not have ended in the best way, Durant's contribution to the Golden State Warriors dynasty seems set in stone.
