Mike Brown has been an assistant coach with the Golden State Warriors since 2016 and he has witnessed first-hand the relationship between the Big 3 of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. The trio has been a part of the team for almost a decade now and has together won three NBA championships.
In this day and age, where we see teammates falling out with each other fairly quickly and potential dynasties getting broken up, the Warriors have been the exception. There is a sense of togetherness in the group and Brown sums it up with one word, "Loyalty". He was on 95.7 The Game's "Morning Roast" when he made those comments.
(via NBC Sports):
"The bottom line is 'loyalty.' These guys are loyal to each other, loyal to the area, loyal to the organization. Because at any time they could have left. Not only that, but at any time they could have bickered amongst one another because this guy gets more [publicity] than the other guy or this guy gets more money than the other guy."
"When you have a group of great individuals, eventually some crap leaks out and that's not good," "And you've never heard it one time, those guys are extremely happy for the success of each other at all times. And it's genuine."
Brown is right on point here. We have heard nothing about any tensions among these three over the years and the only time there was talk about any contentious relationship in the Warriors locker room was when Kevin Durant was on the team. There is a lot of respect both ways between the coaches and the players, as we saw when Brown went along with Draymond and Curry's call to start Kevon Looney in Game 6 against the Memphis Grizzlies.
The Big 3 have always stuck together and they will look to add to their already impressive resumes this season, as they get ready to face the Dallas Mavericks in the Western Conference finals. Another trip to the NBA finals is within touching distance and you wouldn't bet against them winning it all this season.
