Draymond Green on Blazers: “Of course I think they’re done”

11 Comments

Stephen Curry is back, and with that the Warriors are back.

Does that mean the Trail Blazers are done? Yes.

Do you expect Warriors players to say that? No. But Draymond Green did just that in his postgame press conference, which you can see above. Green had been testy and combative all night, drawing one technical and dancing with another, so this fit in with his evening. What he’s saying has some logic — if you believe in your team, and you’re up 3-1, you have to believe the other team is done. It’s just refreshing and a little surprising to hear a player say that.

Don’t think he was backing down from the statement either; Draymond said he wanted to give them bulletin board material. (As a side note, how is “bulletin board material” still a phrase? I can’t remember the last time I saw a bulletin board in a locker room.)

Somewhere, Steve Kerr is just shaking his head.
