Draymond Green left speechless by idea Warriors won't make playoffs

After an offseason that saw seismic change to the Warriors' roster, many already have counted the Dubs out of the Western Conference playoff picture.

With the Lakers adding Anthony Davis, the Clippers acquiring Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, the Jazz trading for Mike Conley and the Rockets swapping Chris Paul for Russell Westbrook, the Warriors' path to the playoffs looks a lot tougher than in years past. Couple that with the loss of Kevin Durant, Andre Iguodala, DeMarcus Cousins and Shaun Livingston, and you have a recipe for a possible transition season by the Bay.

Of course, these are the Warriors we are talking about.

Naturally, the notion of missing playoffs seems absurd to the likes of Steph Curry, and it left Draymond Green at a loss for words.

"People say we're not going to make the playoffs ... um ... that's crazy to me," Green told ESPN's Rachel Nichols after an extended pause. "There's actually some people who think we won't make the playoffs ... I have a hard time believing that. I'm not saying it's not possible. Anything is possible. But I have a tough time believing we won't make the playoffs."

Green, who signed an extension with the Warriors this offseason, will play a big part in keeping the Warriors in the playoff race early in the season.

With Klay Thompson expected to be out until at least February, it will fall on Curry, Green and D'Angelo Russell to shoulder the load against a Western Conference freshly frothing at the mouth to knock off the wounded kings.

The regular season will be more important than it has in years past for the Warriors. They no longer can coast to a playoff berth. They will have to be locked in every night, as even one slip-up could be the difference between making the playoffs and sitting out the postseason.

But with whispers of their demise circulating, expect Green and the Dubs to come out of the gates locked in and ready to silence all of their detractors.

Ayesha left a pretty funny comment on Steph's post, hinting at how crazy the festivities got.

"And to think just hours later we were getting tequila shots and mosh pitting our lives away. Ahhhhhhh balance," Ayesha wrote.

The wedding took place at Saddle Woods Farm in Murfreesboro, Tenn., and Ayesha was part of the bridal party, according to People.com.

Former Warriors forward Dorell Wright also was in attendance.

While Steph and Ayesha were letting loose on Saturday, they were back to normal on Sunday, spending the day with daughters Riley and Ryan.

The Currys are pretty good at that "balance" thing Ayesha mentioned.

Anta reveals '11 Rules of Klaytheism' during Klay Thompson's China trip

The legend of “China Klay” Thompson has been well-documented, as the Warriors star is one of the country’s most popular American athletes.

Anta -- the Chinese company Thompson has an exclusive shoe contract with -- posted a sign during one of Klay’s visits to China with what it calls the “11 Rules of Klaytheism.” A Reddit user recently translated each rule, and the results are expectedly hilarious.

No. 7 has to be the best one, especially with how publicly Thompson has been flaunting his current girlfriend on Instagram. But I mean come on, how can you not love Rocco?

We’ve heard about the idea of “Klaytheism” before, in this short film published in 2017 from The Ringer.
