Draymond Green: “Teams Know They Don’t Have a F*cking Clue” About Stopping the Warriors
This offseason has easily been one of the wildest in recent memory, as big names like Paul George, Carmelo Anthony, Jimmy Butler, Chris Paul and Kyrie Irving, have all found new homes.
Despite these moves, everyone knows who the top dogs. Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green could do nothing but sit and laugh as teams scramble to make moves just to compete with them.
The reigning Defensive Player of the Year has never been one to hold his tongue on any subject. He basically mocked the entire league for not having a clue on how to handle them during an interview with Clay Skipper of GQ.
“What the fuck are you talking about?” he says to me. “They are really trying to rethink their whole strategy”—here he bumps a table repeatedly with his hand for emphasis, getting excited—“because teams know they don’t have a fucking clue.”
He then went on to mock the efforts of the Cleveland Cavaliers, who also didn’t stand a chance against them during the NBA Finals back in June. It took a historic Game 4 for the Cavs to even squeak out a victory during that series:
“That’d never been done!” Green exclaims. “They don’t come out and hit twenty-four threes and they’re swept. And that’s the second best team in the world. It’s pretty fucking sick to see how everybody is just in a fucking panic about what to do. You sit back and think, like, these motherfuckers, they know. That’s the fun part about it: They know they don’t stand a chance.”
With Durant on this squad for years to come, the Warriors’ winning ways may not end for a while now.
