On Monday night against the Nuggets, Draymond Green registered his second triple-double of the season -- 15 points, 13 assists, 10 rebounds.
"I don't care at all," Draymond said after the win. "Not really a focus of mine. Trust me, if I cared I'd have a lot more than that. It really doesn't matter to me, as long as we win ... it's not about chasing stats."
On Tuesday, 95.7 The Game's Damon Bruce asked Draymond about triple-doubles and how they relate to Russell Westbrook and James Harden.
"I think they're defined by them because they have way more," Draymond started. "When you think of Russell right now, you think triple-double. The guy is averaging a triple-double and James is like a rebound-and-a-half away from averaging a triple-double ... I don't necessarily think that's a bad thing.
"Both of them are putting up historic numbers and they should be commended for that. When I said what I said, or KD said what he said, it wasn't a shot at Russell or James. When I said I could have way more if I wanted to, I don't mean I could have 20 or whatever Russell has right now ... because honestly I don't think I could get as many triple-doubles as Russell. What he's doing right now is unheard of."
Westbrook is averaging 30.9 points, 10.5 assists and 10.4 rebounds per game. He leads the league with 16 triple-doubles.
Harden is averaging 28.4 points, 11.9 assists and 8.2 rebounds per game. He is second in the NBA with nine triple-doubles.
"We're (Draymond and Durant) not gonna spend our day worried about trying to throw shots at Russell or throw shots at James. They're two great players ... I don't have enough energy -- and I'm sure Kevin doesn't -- to worry about what another man is doing and try to throw shots at them each and every day.
"That's pointless. That's kind of what goes on in the rap industry (laughter) ... neither one of us has any reason to do that ... just wanted to clear that up."
