Warriors’ Draymond Green recalls meeting Steph Curry, Klay Thompson for the first time
When you think of the Golden State Warriors, three names come to mind, and that’s Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. The trio created a bond off the court that translated into magic and three championships on the court. They all have different personalities and unique abilities when it comes to impacting the game of basketball. Green spoke to ClutchPoints after shootaround Wednesday about meeting his two teammates.
“If you don’t like Steph Curry and Klay Thompson when you first meet them, it’s something wrong with you. Those two guys aren’t going to give you anything not to like about them,” Green said.
Thompson and Curry are known as the Splash bros. They are two of the best shooters the game has ever seen. With many years ahead of them, the pair is already all over the record books for three-point shooting.
Is there any reason someone wouldn’t like the two sharpshooters? Green gave one example.
“Other than if you’re playing against them and they do what they do to people on the court. You can take that personally,” Green continued. “But if you meet Steph and Klay, and you can’t hit it off with Steph and Klay. You should search deep within, and figure out what you got going on personally that’s stopping you from being able to connect with someone that’s that easy to connect with. That is that likable. You got to do some soul searching,” Green told ClutchPoints.
The big three of Green, Curry, and Thompson haven’t shared the court in two seasons because of injuries, which now has the Warriors fighting for a play-in slot at the bottom of the conference. But brighter days are ahead for Warriors fans as a hungry Klay Thompson anxiously waits to be reunited with his two teammates next season.
