NBA Finals: Golden State Warriors' Kevin Durant Throws Teammate Under the Bus
As the NBA Finals continues, Draymond Green may have some explaining to do. In a recent time with the media ahead of Game 5, the Golden State Warriors' Kevin Durant denied a story which Green said happened following last year's championship series.
A few days back, an ESPN report by Zach Lowe shared a story by Green. The outspoken forward revealed that after Golden State lost Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals, he called Durant at the parking lot of Oracle Arena. The rest was history as the 2014 NBA MVP soon signed with the Warriors.
Some criticized Green for this act, especially since he is considered by many as the heart of the Golden State team. However, this tale could be false after all.
According to Bleacher Report, Durant was asked by a reporter regarding this Sunday and he falsified it. The 28-year-old said the call did not take place right after the Warriors blew a 3-1 lead in the previous NBA Finals.
As of this moment, Green is yet to comment on Durant's latest remarks. Two things are sure though, the 27-year-old will be called out for this and is going to be asked about it moving forward.
Aside from this story, Green made it to the headlines this NBA Finals because of his fiery statements after Game 4 where they were defeated by the Cleveland Cavaliers, 137-116. He ripped the Cavaliers fans at the Quicken Loans Arena who were booing him and also questioned the officiating for that game.
Green, Durant, and the Warriors will attempt to reclaim the championship tonight in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. The series heads back to the Oracle Arena. The Cavs, on the other hand, try to stay alive hoping they can extend the series.
