Draymond Green offered a lengthy statement about Monday's incident with Kevin Durant and subsequent suspension from the Golden State Warriors.
"Kevin and I spoke. We're moving forward," Green said. "I think there's no secret that I am an emotional player. I wear my emotions on my sleeve. I play with that same emotion. Sometimes it gets the best of me and it doesn't work to my favor.
"I am going to live with that. Because it works in my favor to the good, as my résumé speaks, and this team's résumé speaks, more so than it doesn't. So I am never going to change who I am. I am going to approach the game the same way that I always do. And like I said, we will continue to move forward."
Green believes the Warriors will be stronger following the incident.
"I have read a lot about how, 'Is this the end of the run?' or 'Is it over?' or 'Did I ruin it?' or 'Did I force Kevin to leave?'" Green said. "You know, at the end of the day, as I've said before, whatever Kevin decides to do, whatever Klay [Thompson] decides to do, whatever who decides to do, we had great years together and I support everybody wholeheartedly, 100 percent. Because as a man, as a human being, you got the right to do what you want with your life. So I will never question that."
Green tried to also push the narrative back toward basketball.
"What you must know is nobody in this organization, from a player -- not myself, not Kevin, not anybody else -- is going to beat us," Green said. "So if you one of them other 29 teams in this league, you got to beat us. We're not going to beat us. We're going to continue to do what we do.
"I am sorry if that ruins everybody's stories. I know everybody got a job to do. I apologize for ruining y'all's stories if it did. But if this only makes Kevin, myself and the rest of my teammates stronger, that's what it's going to do. You think you saw something before? Good luck with us now. We're not going to crumble off of an argument. We are going to move forward. So that's all I have got to say. Anybody want to talk basketball, I am here. If not, it's been real."
