Kevin Durant had no interest in downplaying feud with Draymond Green

Kevin Durant Warriors

Kevin Durant was given every opportunity on Tuesday night to throw cold water on the reports of issues between teammates and heated exchanges within the Golden State Warriors’ locker room, but the reigning NBA Finals MVP had no interest in doing that.

Durant was visibly upset with Draymond Green for not passing the ball at the end of regulation in an eventual overtime loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday, and the frustration reportedly spilled over into a heated locker room exchange after the game. When asked about the incident following Tuesday’s 110-103 win over the Atlanta Hawks, Durant said he and Green had not smoothed things over. He then passed up numerous opportunities to downplay the feud, saying he would rather “keep that in house.”

If it wasn’t already obvious that Durant and Green are not on good terms, that should remove all doubt. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Marc J. Spears described Monday’s locker room scene as “one of the most intense of this G-State era,” and Durant’s postgame remarks on Tuesday did nothing to make us think that is an exaggeration.

Durant can opt out of his contract after this season and become a free agent, and that is apparently becoming a big issue for the Warriors.
