"Nobody organization from a glare. Myself not Kevin. Else is gonna meet us. Wanted a mother Katina. I love alley spinning we're not going to beat us. Even though the reason he's talking about this is because he's doing something to beat the Golden State Warriors. He's beating his own team by getting into with Kevin Durant. Maybe pushing him out the door. Like, maybe we saw the moment that LeBron realized I'm leaving Cleveland was JR Smith, not realizing what the score wasn't game. One of the final vows the moment where LeBron realizes I'm just going to go because I have to. I mean, this could be the moment where Draymond green forever pushes Kevin Durant away from the warriors. And here's Draymond green saying. Yeah, we're not gonna do it to ourselves. Dude. You're doing it to your team. He doesn't see reality. He just doesn't. He just doesn't see what he's done is completely tearing apart this team and how to dynasties crumble, they all crumble from the inside teams don't stay together anymore long enough to say, well, we just got old. This is not the Showtime Lakers of the early nineties where you know, what all their players were great. But then they got old and Michael Jordan's time was coming. No. That's not the case. That's that's how things were twenty five years ago. Teams. Don't stay together that long they all implode from within and Draymond green is the guy that is imploding this quote dynasty. He's going to be the guy, and you have to see the board right now and see what and see for what the reality is dream on green is going to appeal at one hundred and twenty thousand dollar fine from the team for his suspension. He is at odds with the organization the organization does not like him. They all voted as a team to suspend him. This is not twelve guys with twelve different agendas. This is everybody with one agenda and Draymond green on his own island thinking. Yeah, I'm fighting windmills, and you're not going to destroy us. This is galvanizing us the rest of the team is going, dude. Really? You're the one that caught suspended doesn't see the reality. You're not winning the fight is you versus Durant, and they're choosing Durant. A hundred times out of one hundred. There's no question about it. You're a guy who's Val? Oh, you overall and as much as he was glue guy in as much as we celebrated the selflessness defensively in the intensity and everything else. It's also the thing that is undoing as he alluded to a little bit in that presser as well as he talked about his emotion and how that's the way he has to be. That's the way he plays. That's the way it works. That's fine. But you're dealing with a different soul that you've now winded in Kevin Durant, and for eight months or the opportunity to re up and keep them around on another two in one deal, or whatever that becomes the warriors aren't giving up this season to placate Draymond green. So if Kevin Durant is salty enough to where it affects his play, and you can argue tonight as a team wanted no part of a game should have gone and watched a movie maybe gone and team grinned Walden cast, some spells out each other or something, I don't know. But they certainly didn't wanna play basketball because they just got absolutely housed. What has been a disappointing? Confusing team as well in the Houston Rockets. So now, they gather and regroup whatever Steph curry comes back. That's fine. But for Draymond green. He's reading this all wrong like you can go and try to try to sue and file a grievance with the CBA and whatever else they're well within the rights because you upset in the locker room you upset their star, and you caused problems on on the court and in the locker room to create some issues that we are going to go away anytime soon, and we'll see how much this inhibits their ability to keep the train rolling towards another title Twitter out. How about a Fresca Mike at swollen dome? The Jason Smith show with my. Friend Mike Harmon. We that's the reality of the situation for everybody who thinks all the warriors aren't going to trade Draymond or there. They can easily move on without him. He's not the same player. He was he doesn't have the same cachet in the locker. It's like we talk about with mellow. I can't believe teams are still interested in Carmelo Anthony. And I it's like going to your high school reunion thinking I'm going to see the girl from when she was seventeen and his twenty five years later and everything's going to be exactly the same. And you're gonna wind. It really isn't. It's like people still see Draymond green is the guy he was three years ago. Boy, he's indispensable. He really does so many things. No, he doesn't anymore. He's to role players wrapped into one guy. He's a really good defender. And he's a big man that can run the floor and pass. That's it. He doesn't shoot his pulled out enough rebounds in a game. That's what he is. He's to role players is one. He's not nearly the glue the guy he's talks a lot. But who is now you have to realize it's different from three years ago. And the whole team is on one side of things and he's all by himself on the. The other. And the fact that he put out that statement today saying, yeah, this is about your Kevin I have talked about this. And and and no one's going to beat us. Someone's got someone's gotta come beat us. We're not going to beat ourselves. This is not a team wide thing. That's that's what he fails to understand that this is not Shaun Livingston is saying this and Steph curry is saying this, and you know, maybe Klay Thompson and Steph for on his size. No. This is everybody is on. You're by yourself. I mean, he's got he he he doesn't see that. He doesn't realize how vulnerable he is. And sure as heck fire. They will trade him if they feel this season comes down to we can win with Kevin Durant. But things are so bad between the two of you. We will move on one. Last time all.
