The heated argument between Kevin Durant and Draymond Green took place 23 days ago. A lot has transpired since that dramatic night in Los Angeles.

On Wednesday afternoon, Warriors GM Bob Myers took inventory of where things stand between Durant and Draymond.

"They really do respect each other," Myers explained to Greg Papa and Bonta Hill on 95.7 The Game. "They come from tough backgrounds. They both are the type of people who truly appreciate the road that they took -- they took different kind of roads to get into the NBA -- but neither one of them were handed anything in life so they got a mutual respect for each other.

"But they're not the same personality. Sometimes, they rub each other in different directions and that's really what happened. And the good thing is that they can and they did and they have talked plenty since then. And Draymond made a point of it to talk to him individually.

"I really think it's behind us. I really do ... you have to flush it out, you have to get it all out there -- get all your emotions out. There's a healing part of it -- you don't get over it in 30 seconds -- but you do get over it. And I honestly think they have."

 

After a tough four-game stretch, Durant has been absolutely spectacular over the last seven games -- 37 points, 9.1 rebounds, 6.7 assists, 1.7 blocks, 0.9 steals on 54.5 percent shooting.

Draymond, meanwhile, has missed the 10 of the last 11 games and will not play in Cleveland or Milwaukee. He is dying to make his return, and may suit up on Monday vs Minnesota or Wednesday vs Toronto.

Myers is in the school of thought that the drama between the star players may make Golden State better off in the long run.

"People are gonna think I'm just saying this -- I really do think those moments can disrupt your team and make things difficult. But when you overcome them, it does make you stronger. I really believe that.

"When you persevere is when you really form stronger bonds. I think that's all part of the process ... I actually feel good about it. I think they're in a good place."
