Draymond Green’s surprising comparison between Warriors, Michael Jordan’s Bulls
Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green was also one of the millions of basketball fans who tuned in to watch “The Last Dance” on April 19. For his part, the three-time NBA champ has come out with a typically controversial Draymond statement.
“I think the two greatest teams ever in the NBA were built on bad contracts,” Draymond Green said during an interview with UNINTERRUPTED.
In 2013, a 24-year-old Curry — who was yet to achieve superstar status in the league — signed a new deal with the Dubs to the tune of roughly $11 million a year for the next four seasons. By the time that deal came to an end in the summer of 2017, the 6-foot-3 guard was already a two-time MVP and had led the Warriors to two out of their three championships.
It wasn’t until 2017 that Curry signed a deal that was commensurate to his status, as he penned a five-year, $210 million deal with the Warriors.
For Green, the fact that Curry played some of the best years of his career while earning just that amount of money simply isn’t right. The same can be said about Pippen’s time with Chicago, so to Green’s credit, he is actually on to something here.
