Can “Frustrated” Stephen Curry Carry Draymond Green Burden Any Further? NBA Insider Evaluates Warriors Conundrum

The dust hovers in a sun shaft around Draymond Green‘s grains of sand in the Warriors’ well-oiled machinery. Green, through multiple suspensions and ejections, has relegated them for the majority of the season. The denouement comes from his recent ejection, which occurred within the first 4 minutes of the game. It left the Warriors undermanned, demotivated, and with an emotional Stephen Curry.

While Green, since then, has increased his intensity on the court, he is also defending his squad against a chirping Houston Rockets. However, many believe it is a part of Green’s pattern, staunchly advising the Warriors to get rid of the forward. However, Tim Kawakami (sports journalist) believes otherwise. Hilariously saying, “Just because it’s an emergency on First Take, doesn’t mean it’s an emergency for the Warriors,” Tim highlights Steph’s leaning towards Green. The reporter claims, “He clearly is okay with it. He gets frustrated, no question,” while hinting that despite the questionable antics, Curry still desires to share the court with Dray.

Moreover, talking about the major changes looming over Golden State, Tim radiates at the Warriors’ history knack of making bold moves. However, he cites concerns about Chris Paul’s return, with a surety on a decreased paycheck for Klay Thompson; that is if that happens.

Regardless of the moves the Warriors manage to pull off, the franchise needs to attend the Draymond Green situation by its neck. Over the years, Green has made news for all the wrong reasons. He was directly associated with the tensions in the locker room, marking the end of their dominant Kevin Durant version. Moreover, before the 2022-23 season, Green was seen punching their rising star Jordan Poole in a team scrimmage. This season, had Green averted his two suspensions, they might have been in a better spot in the last stretch of the campaign.

Is Stephen Curry shouldering the burden of Draymond Green?

Many back Curry after the shooter hid his tears behind his Warriors jersey. Others seem to bash him for not beckoning a hush in the hay. Nevertheless, both notions fall miles away from the December narratives applauding Curry to shoulder the entire roster. Regardless, the argument still stands as Curry, after Green’s boisterous exit, managed to take over the game late (with a fair share of struggles).

Despite being the top shooter in the game, statistically, Curry performs better alongside Green. Without him, Steph sees a slight dip in production. He posts 25 points, 4.8 assists, and 3.5 rebounds (22 games), with less efficiency and shooting opportunities. On the other hand, when Steph steps into an open court with Green on his side, there’s an increase in three-point attempts and overall consistency. He averages 27.4 points, 5.1 assists, and 4.7 rebounds with DrayMagic.

Even though Curry might be all up for shouldering Draymond Green’s burden, they are two different peas in the same pod. The two complement each other like peanut butter and jelly – different on the palates but the nation’s go-to each morning.
