Draymond Green says Stephen Curry is the kind of player a team should build around
With Stephen Curry sidelined by a groin injury for some time now, the Golden State Warriors have been missing his services. Warriors All-Star Draymond Green says that Curry is the kind of player a team should build around.
Mark Medina of the Bay Area News Group wrote a column on the positive approach that the Warriors are having despite all the scrutiny and criticisms, including Green’s heap of praises for the two-time NBA MVP.
“That’s kind of who this organization has been built around. Everybody took on his personality and his free-flowing and, for a lack of a better term, careless approach,” Green said. “When I say careless, I don’t mean not a care in the world, but that joy that we always talk about. It’s always going to be important. That’s the makeup of this team.”
Newsflash, Mr. Green, we all know about this already. The Warriors are coming off a double-digit beatdown at the hands of the Houston Rockets, their second loss during Curry’s absence. While the defending champs have always preached unselfishness and teamwork, it is no secret that their recipe for success is centered around Curry’s abilities.
This season, Curry is making a strong case for a third MVP award with averages of 29.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 6.1 assists per game.
Also, his joyful approach to the game is Curry’s asset that Green likes the most. It has certainly influenced the team given how Green and Kevin Durant have patched things up after their widely-documented altercation during an overtime loss against the Los Angeles Clippers. Nevertheless, the Warriors remain good.
