Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green talked about his altercation with then teammate Kevin Durant in November.

“I started to tell myself in my mind, ‘Wow, [Myers is] flipping on me. And it just felt like, ‘Wow, OK, is this not the guy I’ve known for all these years? Is he turning on me?’

And I started to tell myself all of these things, and then everybody’s like, ‘Oh my God, the Warriors sided with Kevin Durant.’

That was the hardest thing for me, because a lot of people don’t understand me. Bob does. I just had to accept the fact that I was wrong. And once I was able to get over my stubbornness and accept the fact that I was wrong, I was able to move on.

I lost [Durant’s] trust. How do I get that back? Not so we can win a championship or we can win some games.

But, I actually loved this guy, like that’s really my brother. And so not knowing what’s next in our relationship bothered me more,” Green told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on The Woj Pod during a joint interview with the Warriors GM Bob Myers.

Golden State suspended Green for one game without pay after an on-court disagreement with Durant following a loss to the LA Clippers extended into the locker room.
