Draymond Green doesn’t see Warriors’ run ending anytime soon
While history suggests that every dynasty has an end, Draymond Green doesn’t think the Golden State Warriors’ will anytime soon.
“All good things come to an end, but I don’t think the end is near,” said Green in an interview with Lee Jenkins of Sports Illustrated.
“What we have here is so unique, and what makes it work is selflessness. We don’t look at it as, ‘KD, you the face, you the guy.’ Or, ‘Steph, you the face, you the guy.’ There ain’t no guy.”
That statement was made evident through Curry’s actions in Game 3 and after Game 4 of the NBA Finals in these playoffs.
Curry had struggled to the tune of a horrid 3-of-16 from the field, yet was there to congratulate and celebrate with Kevin Durant after he nailed a 33-foot dagger to seal the victory and put the Cleveland Cavaliers at the brink of elimination.
Durant had taken the lead as the frontrunner for the Finals MVP award after that game, but Curry bounced back with a huge 37-point performance in Game 4, yet didn’t hear his name called, as Durant won his second Finals MVP trophy in as many seasons.
Curry celebrated alongside Durant with no evident sign of envy or ill feelings against his teammate, despite this award being the only box left to check in his soon-to-be Hall of Fame resume.
That unselfishness and sheer unbridled joy for the game has been ingrained into the very fiber of this team, making it an indestructible bond between all members — an immeasurable factor that has proven key in their quest for a back-to-back championship and perhaps many more to come.
