Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green still hungry, Bob Myers says

Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green still hungry, Bob Myers says

If you're one of the people doubting that the Warriors can win another NBA title with their current core, watch out.

Warriors president of basketball operations and general manager Bob Myers was asked Monday if Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green are chomping at the bit to get back on the court together.

"Those guys are very prideful," Myers told NBC Sports Bay Area's Logan Murdock. "They've proven they are competitive, they've proven that they are winners, they've proven they've played through adversity, so it's just who they are, I don't need to say it. People that watch them just know it. People can look back at the last five years and say it was easy, but it never was easy, watching it up close as I did, for them.

"So I think it's in there, it's part of who they are, it's part of why they've all won three championships. And I don't doubt they will come back with that same hunger to try to do it again."

Thompson missed the entire 2019-20 season as he recovered from surgery to repair the torn left ACL he suffered in Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals. If the 2020-21 season begins in December, and Thompson is healthy, it will 17 to 18 months between games for him.

Curry played in just five games after breaking his left hand in the fourth game of season. And with his running mates sidelined, Green played in just 43 of the Warriors' 70 games this season.

All of that led to the Warriors stumbling to an NBA-worst 15-50 record.

Now, presuming health, the Warriors' core three are out to prove they can win another NBA title without Kevin Durant, who left for the Brooklyn Nets in free agency last summer.

Once the current season ends in October, Myers will have a chance to retool the Warriors' roster to give Curry, Thompson and Green a supporting cast that can help them get back to the top of the mountain.

Suns troll Warriors' Draymond Green over $50K fine for Booker remarks

Draymond Green had some choice words about the Phoenix Suns and star Devin Booker during a recent appearance as an NBA analyst on TNT.

"It's not good for him. It's not good for his career," Green said. "... They gotta get Book out of Phoenix. I need my man to go somewhere where he can play great basketball all the time and win, because he's that type of player."

After the NBA announced on Sunday that Green would face a $50,000 fine for tampering with his comments, the Suns' Twitter account decided to have some fun with the situation while sharing a highlight video of Booker.

Green never has been one to shy away from speaking his mind, and also already has gone back and forth with longtime media nemesis Charles Barkley during other appearances on TNT's NBA coverage.

Don't be surprised if Draymond is a little more careful with his words going forward during his on-camera appearances.

Steph Curry offers to caddie for Collin Morikawa after PGA title win

The 2020 PGA Championship from Harding Park was the first major of the season to be completed without fans, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage across the United States. 

But among the select group of people in attendance for Sunday's final round was golf aficionado and Warriors star Steph Curry.

Curry and the Warriors weren't one of the 22 NBA teams invited to the league's restart of the 2019-20 season in Orlando, as it has been a quiet offseason so far for Golden State.

Steph even joined the post-round press conference, asking the first question of Collin Morikawa, the Cal graduate who won the event by two shots. 

"If you need a caddie for the next three months, I'm available."

Curry offered to caddie for Morikawa, who despite spending his college career in Berkeley, proudly exclaimed that he's not a Warriors fan (Morikawa is a Los Angeles native).

The Warriors star recently played in the American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe, finishing fourth among the celebrity-laden field.
