What they're saying: Curry electrifies in OT thriller over Thunder

The Warriors on Saturday had it out with the Thunder in Oklahoma City. 

It was an instant classic in which Golden State came back and finished off Russell Westbrook and Co. in overtime.

And at the forefront of this thriller was none other than reigning MVP Steph Curry.

Why Warriors' Draymond Green is 'strongly against' second NBA bubble

Why Warriors' Draymond Green is 'strongly against' second NBA bubble

It sounds like the NBA will not be building a second bubble in Chicago for the eight teams who are not included in the 2019-20 season restart in Orlando.

And that is music to Draymond Green's ears.

The Warriors' star forward was a guest Wednesday on "The Steam Room" podcast, and he had a hilarious exchange with Charles Barkley.

Barkley: "Are you, Steph (Curry) and Klay (Thompson) getting ready for that second bubble right now? (laughter)"

Draymond: "Second bubble? What's that? (laughter) The Gus Macker Toilet Bowl -- that's what you want us to go play in? (laughter)"

Barkley: "When I heard them saying some of the other teams want to put together a second bubble, me and Dray were joking. I asked him last week, I said, 'Hey, when are you Steph gonna get to that second bubble?' He said, 'Hell no!' "

Draymond: "No chance (laughter). No chance. No, at the end of the day -- if it came about and we had to go -- I'm not gonna opt out. I'm just not gonna do that. But I am strongly against Adam Silver and anyone else in the league office starting a second bubble.

"No one wants to see these teams. And by the way -- they don't want to see us if Steph and Klay ain't playing either (laughter). So what are we talking about?"

The original idea was for the Warriors, Minnesota Timberwolves, Atlanta Hawks, Cleveland Cavaliers, Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks, Charlotte Hornets and Detroit Pistons to scrimmage each other, and get practice time.

Golden State coach Steve Kerr always preferred for his team to stay in the Bay Area, and hold a minicamp of sorts.

Had that been approved by the NBA and NBPA -- and it appears it will not -- Draymond legitimtately would have taken the court.

But it never made sense for the three-time NBA champions to suit up against other teams, when really there wasn't anything to gain.

Kevin Durant reluctantly reveals his NBA Finals prediction for 2020

Kevin Durant reluctantly reveals his NBA Finals prediction for 2020

Back in early October, Kevin Durant picked the LA Clippers to beat the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2020 Western Conference finals.

The former Warriors supertar recently was a guest on the "Play For Keeps" podcast, and he hasn't changed his mind on that potential matchup.

KD is going with Clippers-Lakers in the West, and a Milwaukee Bucks-Toronto Raptors matchup in the Eastern Conference finals.

"If I had to choose -- and I hate doing that s--t because you never know what could happen, you seen that with us last year -- but if I could choose, I would go Clippers-Bucks in the championship," the two-time NBA Finals MVP said. "And I'll go with the Clippers.

"They're just so deep. They ain't had their whole team together at once yet for a long period of time. That talent is just undeniable. When you got PG (Paul George) and Kawhi (Leonard) at the wings -- that's what you need to win is wings.

"You got those two at the wings -- arguably top three (or) top four at the wing position on one team ... they can go 11 deep -- 11 players that you wouldn't mind putting on the court in a playoff game. And they all want to win."

Yours truly totally agrees with the 10-time All-Star.

The Clippers enter Thursday's slate of games in second place in the West, just 0.5 games ahead of the Denver Nuggets.

Quick reminder --- KD could have signed with the Clippers last July, but chose the Brooklyn Nets instead.
