Kelly Oubre Jr. shared his thoughts on having the opportunity to play alongside Draymond Green.

The newest member of the Golden State Warriors shared his excitement for being teammates with the three-time NBA champion.

“I mean, we’re both fiery cats on the court. We’re both competitors. So I just feel like we can push each other. I want to have a conversation with him, of course, just to let him know, ‘bro, you can come at me.

Like you can get on my ass and tell me that I need to be better, or I need to do better, and I won’t take it personally.’ Because I understand that that’s what it takes to win.

And I just look forward to the same energy of me being able to lead and just push guys to be their best selves. So I’m excited. Draymond’s a winner, man. I’m excited to win,” Oubre Jr. told David Aldridge of The Athletic.
