Draymond Green Says Stephen Curry Showed The Ultimate Sign Of Respect By Inviting Kevin Durant To The Golden State Warriors: "Steph Opened The Door To His Home For Kevin, And Kevin Came In."

Over the last few weeks, Draymond Green has been extremely vocal about all sorts of things. Be it about shutting up his critics or addressing his time with former teammates. Green has been tackling all sorts of points during his free time. Since Green is the face of the new media, fans also love hearing Green's opinions about various things.

Recently in a podcast with former NBA player JJ Redick, Green talked about a plethora of things. Among which was his reasoning for why the Warriors needed Kevin Durant to win against the Cavaliers in '17 & '18.

Additionally, the 4x NBA champion also claimed that even if the Dubs didn't have Kevin, they would have still easily defeated the Houston Rockets. And the podcast continues.

One of the lesser talked about topics from the said podcast was when Green addressed what was the ultimate sign of respect was in his opinion. He explained that beautifully with an example of how Steph Curry welcomed Durant to the Warriors.

"I think the ultimate sign of respect that you can show someone is to invite them into your home. The ultimate respect you can give me is to open the door to your home for me. Steph, I felt like, opened the door to his home for Kevin, and Kevin came in. And, goddamnit, this is home for you, too. We're all brothers. None of this stuff works without Kevin. We all know that. But for me to open this door for you and you come home and then it's successful, I feel like that should go on and on, and then you just kind of abruptly exit."

As Green revealed, he believes the ultimate sign of respect is to invite them into your home. Steph Curry and co. did just that when KD came knocking after the 2016 NBA playoffs.

They welcomed him in, and, as most expected, the partnership between Durant and the rest of the Dubs was successful. But Green concluded his point by saying that KD abruptly exits, signifying that there is probably a part of Green that hasn't forgiven the Slim Reaper for joining the Brooklyn Nets.
