Warriors’ Draymond Green Says Team Run Not Over

Published

Although the Golden State Warriors were defeated by the Toronto Raptors in the 2019 NBA Finals, Warriors forward Draymond Green doesn’t think it’s wise to think that the Warriors run,which has included three titles in the past 5 years, is over.

“I think everybody thinks it’s kind of the end of us,” Green said, according to ESPN. “But that’s just not smart. We’re not done yet. We lost this year. Clearly just wasn’t our year, but that’s how the cookie crumbles sometimes. But, yeah, I hear a lot of that noise, it’s the end of a run and all that jazz. I don’t see it happening, though. We’ll be back.”

Warriors guard Stephen Curry, Green’s teammate, share Green’s sentiment.

“We’ll be thinking about this one. It’s tough,” Curry said. “But our DNA and who we are and the character that we have on this team, I wouldn’t bet against us being back on this stage next year and going forward. So, really proud of the way that we fought until the end, and this five-year run’s been awesome, but definitely don’t think it’s over.”

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr reflected on the Warriors’ dominant run over the past 5 seasons.

“It’s hard to put into words how I feel about our team,” Kerr said. “What I’ve witnessed as their coach over the last five years is just an incredible combination of talent and character and commitment to each other. This just doesn’t happen. A group of guys like this doesn’t come around together and do what they did over the last five years. And I’ve been lucky enough to be their coach. That’s what I told them in the locker room.

“I can’t tell you my gratitude in terms of just being put in this position to be with this group and to coach them and to help them. But I could not be any luckier as a coach to be with these guys every day and to watch them compete and, boy, do they compete. I think they showed that throughout this series and throughout the playoffs.”

Green made it a point to note how the team battled, despite the losing effort.

“Obviously, you feel good about it, but it’s no shocker to us,” Green said. “We know what this team has been made of all along. I said it over and over again, the pretty offense will always be the storyline, but this team, a ton of heart. Everybody that steps on that floor displayed a ton of heart. So it’s no shocker to us that we continue to fight, but we came up a little short and that’s just it.”
