The stakes are getting higher as teams prepare for a long and grueling playoff stretch. It is a situation the Warriors know all too well, being the two-time defending Champions.
But even beyond the playoffs and the Championship, the focus has become about the future of Kevin Durant more than anything, thanks to months of rumor and speculation.
Draymond Green, recently commented on all of the KD hype, explaining where is head was it through it all:
“He’s part of it right now. Whatever happens this summer happens. Whatever the hell he do, he does. If he go, he go. If he stay, he stay. But while he’s here, we’re going to win another championship. It’s just that simple. Nothing else matters,” said Green.
Interestingly, he also noted that the team wasn’t going walk around holding grudges either, as they did in November when KD and Green had their infamous confrontation.
“It’s not important. We’re not about to sit around and walk around, or carry something around, that happened in November.”
It has been a weird season for the Warriors, to say the least. They have dealt with the looming free agencies of two of their best players, they have seen locker room infighting and tension, and they have suffered some questionable losses throughout the season.
Still, come playoff time, nobody is going to want to mess with this team. At least for now, they’re still atop the basketball world, even if it is just for a couple more months.
