As the Golden State Warriors continue to repair internal damage in the wake of a verbal altercation between Kevin Durant and Draymond Green during and following a Monday night overtime loss to the LA Clippers, point guard Stephen Curry said he is “extremely proud” of the way the team has come together since.new nike nfl jerseys for sale cheap
“It’s been different. It’s been tough,” Curry said Saturday before the Warriors’ 112-109 loss to the Dallas Mavericks, their third defeat in four games. “Obviously it sucks not being able to play. It sucks when you’re not with the team when something like that happens. But I think the way we’ve handled it as a team, the way Draymond’s handled it, the way KD’s handled it, it’s been nothing but professionalism and understanding that it’s about the team. And the conversations that we’ve all had, whether it’s one-on-one, as a team, is keeping that in mind.
“And at the end of the day, nothing should distract us from what our goal is. I think guys have attempted and are going to continue to get to a place where we can continue to move forward, get back to who we are as a team — and once we get over these injuries, we’ll be able to show what we’re about as a team and do it together, so I’m extremely proud of the way we’ve handled this last week. It’s an opportunity to really implode and crumble, but that’s not going to happen.”
Curry, out since Nov. 8 with a strained left groin, spoke Saturday for the first time since both the injury and the altercation between Durant and Green, one that led to a one-game suspension for the latter. Curry remains confident that his teammates will be able to move forward.nike nfl cheap jerseys
“They have a lot of equity built in their relationship,” Curry said of Durant and Green. “We’ve won championships together. They’ve brought out the best in each other. Obviously, I don’t think they’ve had an incident to this level, but you don’t have the experiences you’ve had and go through the journey that we’ve been on and let it be derailed by something like that. Obviously, from a personal standpoint, there are things that need to be worked through. That’s like any relationship in life. But at the end of the day, they both understand that neither one of them is going to be a reason that we don’t win a championship this year. I can roll with that.”
