Steph Curry and Draymond Green have a special relationship.
They have been teammates since the 2012-13 season and have been through a lot together.
[REWIND: That time Draymond & Curry bonded over BBQ, beer when trailing Grizzlies in playoffs]
Curry recently was a guest on The Bill Simmons Podcast, and obviously Draymond was a topic of conversation:
Simmons: "What’s your favorite Draymond story? What’s the one story that captures what it’s like to be on the same team as Draymond Green? Other than the game where he almost got thrown out for trash-talking the Clippers when he wasn’t even in uniform." (laughter)
Curry: "I remember that game. Probably the times him and Coach Kerr get into it. And you’re inside of practice and you don’t know whose side to take. Just like, 'I guess they’re both right, but they’re both wrong.'"
Simmons: "What do they argue about? Give me an example."
Curry: "They argue about a play call or maybe something Coach Kerr has been thinking about for a couple games ... and he's like 'Don’t over-coach. We know what we doing.' And coach is like, 'Well, I know you know what you’re doing, but let me just help you along as I’m supposed to do. That’s what my job is to do -- to point out things that could be important for us to win a championship.'
"But they have a real -- the respect level between those two is at an all-time high, but they have their moments and it’s just amazing entertainment to watch in practice. Coach’s first year, we were doing some five-on-five drill, and Draymond loves talking trash to the whole team -- doesn’t matter if it’s me. Shaun Livingston was posting me up on the block and I had no chance to try to contest his shot. And he did a little turnaround, a Shaun Livingston vintage turnaround over the top of me.
"And Draymond was like, 'He’s too small, Dot! He’s too small, Dot! Baby food!' Yelling all that stuff during the middle of practice, and he’s on my team (laughter). I’m like, 'Bro, come on.' That little stuff happens, but then when him and Coach Kerr get into it, the whole practice stops because they’re two important voices when it comes to how practice is flowing.
"So, we let them kind of deal with their issue and we keep it moving. At then at the end of practice, it’s just like nothing happened. And that’s the best part."
Don't ever change, Draymond. Don't ever change.
