Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and D'Angelo Russell finally were under the same roof as teammates Monday.
Hours after the Warriors Media Day festivities came to a close at Chase Center, Russell posted a photo of the four stars together.
Klay -- who was in a very chatty mood prior to taking the podium and speaking to the media -- stole the show when he left the following comment:
Let's take a second to defend Draymond from "Bully Klay."
Yes, the 2017 Defensive Player of the Year did not shoot the ball well from beyond the arc the last three seasons. Green shot 30.8 percent, 30.1 percent and 28.5 percent, respectively in from beyond the arc in each of the past three seasons.
But Green hasn't been all bad from distance. He did shoot 41 percent from deep during the 2017 NBA playoffs, made two huge triples late in Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals against the Cavs and did this in Game 4 of last year's Western Conference finals in Portland:

During the 2015-16 campaign -- when he was named All-NBA Second-Team and finished seventh in MVP voting -- Draymond shot 38.8 percent from 3-point territory.
With Kevin Durant no longer on the team and Thompson sidelined until late February at the earliest, the Dubs need Draymond to consistently regain his prowess from deep.
He certainly is capable:
In Game 2 of the 2016 NBA Finals, Draymond Green scored 28 points on 11-for-20 overall and 5-for-8 from deep. He’s only 29 years old and I think he’s very capable of averaging 14-16 points per game next year while shooting in the mid 40s pic.twitter.com/4WgT14uhTo— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) July 29, 2019
Sorry, Klay. Not everybody can shoot 42 percent for an entire season, or make 14 3-pointers in a single game.
You just worry about your awesome commute to work and leave Draymond alone.
Klay told @GrantLiffmann and I yesterday that he now has a residence in San Francisco, but that he still has his spot in the East Bay. It looks like he slept in the East Bay last night and was able to avoid Bay Bridge traffic this morning on his commute to Chase Center... https://t.co/tbbVVH4Irl— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) October 1, 2019
