The Golden State Warriors were a dominant force in the NBA a few years ago with one of the most feared lineups of all time. But, as we know, it wasn't a perfect ending for what could have been a long-lasting dynasty.
Everything began to fell apart when Kevin Durant left the franchise to join the Brooklyn Nets in 2019, just a few months after his infamous beef with Draymond Green in an overtime loss to Los Angeles Clippers.
The pair sat down a few months ago to reflect on a number of topics, including their argument and how they believed the Warriors execs mishandled the situation. GM Bob Myers, who was blamed for his behavior after that incident, has recently opened up on those comments.
Warriors GM Bob Myers reacts to Green, KD blaming him for their breakup
In his first episode of Bleacher Report's show Chips, Draymond Green asked KD if he left the Warriors because of their argument, to which Durant answered that it wasn't the fact they argued what made him leave, but how everybody reacted to it. "Steve Kerr acted like it didn’t happen, Bob Myers tried to discipline you and think that would just put the mask over everything," he said.
Green agreed with Durant that the situation should have been handled much better, taking a shot at Myers. The Warriors GM took his time to address this topic on SiriusXM NBA Radio, showing he has no hard feelings towards Green nor KD at all. In fact, it's quite the opposite.
Myers emphazised on his great relationship with Green and everything they've accomplished together, praising the 31-year-old for all what he's done for the Warriors.
"I haven't even talked to him about it," Myers said. "I haven't. Let's say I know this guy really well. And let's say he said something about me to you. My relationship with him is so much beyond that and if it really bothered me I would but I know Draymond -- I drafted him, he was like my first draft -- I sat with him when he got suspended for the Finals over in Oakland. I didn't go to the game. I sat with him at the Oakland A's game. I love that guy. It's gonna take a lot more than that, and he's allowed to feel how he feels. And so is Kevin. I've been through too much with him.
"I've watched that guy win three Championships with us. I can't get upset about that. Him and Kevin, the good that they've done for me and this franchise, way outweigh anything like that. And when people feel a certain way about something, they can feel a certain way. And some of the stuff that people say, they don't know what's behind it. They don't know the relationships that live behind that stuff."
After all, Myers seems to understand that it's pointless to make this something bigger than what it actually is. It's much better to focus on what's ahead of the Warriors instead, and have a good memory of the team's best years.
