Last night’s Warriors’ road loss against the Los Angeles Clippers may have been a lot worse than what we all thought, as it may have actually torn Golden State’s locker room apart for good.
With both teams tied at 106 in regulation, Draymond Green decided to take matters into his own hands and dribble the ball, resulting in a turnover as time expired. This kind of things happen and nobody could blame you for that unless you have a wide open Kevin Durant next to you.
Kevin Durant was desperately asking for Green to pass him the rock to try and nail the game-winning bucket, but Green blatantly ignored him and the Warriors eventually lost by 5 in overtime.
Green has never been known for his offensive expertise, so naturally, everybody would expect him to give up a last second shot to a future hall of famer and one of the best scorers in the history of the game.
Furthermore, Durant and Green got into a heated altercation after the game, and things got even worse in the locker room.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, this fight was the “most intense and volatile scene of the Steve Kerr era in the Warriors locker room.”
Thing is, several players, sided with Kevin Durant and harshly criticized Draymond’s decision making, blaming him for the loss that took their record to 11 and 3. Green, being Green; didn’t back down of the confrontation.
It’s worth noticing that the defending Champions have been playing without Stephen Curry due to an injury and have lost 2 games ever since. Hopefully, things will calm down in the Warriors locker room pretty soon, as they’re the most entertaining team to watch in the league.
Also, the organization will be looking into the aftermath of that incident, according to Wojnarowski’s reports.
