Draymond Green shares story about Riley Curry asking him why Warriors keep losing
The Golden State Warriors are in unfamiliar territory right now. After reaching the NBA Finals for five straight seasons, they are currently the worst team in the league with a 3-14 record. And with Stephen Curry sidelined with a long-term injury and Klay Thompson shut down for the rest of the season, the future isn’t looking good for the Dubs.
Sure enough, fans are still finding it hard to absorb the fact that the Warriors have gone from a perennial NBA contender to a lottery-bound team. Apparently, however, even the players’ kids are clueless as to why Golden State is struggling.
Draymond Green shared a story about how he answered the question of Steph’s eldest daughter, Riley Curry, as to why the team keeps losing.
“The other day, I was getting them out of the family room after the (Celtics) game and Riley Curry was in there. She’s like: ‘Did we lose?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, Riley, we lost.’ She’s like: ‘Why do we keep losing?’”
Of course, Green knew one of the main reasons why, and it’s because of Curry’s hand injury. Nonetheless, the two-time All-Star refused to give Riley that answer. Instead, Dray just said that the team will get better as the season progresses.
Green added that even his children aren’t used to seeing the Warriors lose a lot of games.
“All my kids know is the Warriors winning. So, us losing, it doesn’t make sense to them,” he furthered.
With Kevin Durant gone and Steph and Klay sidelined, it’s unlikely for the Warriors to turn things around.
But, who knows? As an old adage goes, “Never underestimate the heart of a champion.”
