Draymond Green wonders whether Kevin Durant still respects him after stalkerish recruiting (video)

Draymond Green said he didn’t talk much with Kevin Durant during the playoffs – which means Green crammed in a ton of communication before the postseason.

The Warriors recruited Durant throughout the season to the point it reportedly bothered the Thunder – especially Green’s relationship with Durant.

Just what was that relationship last year?

Green on Conan:

I recruited KD really really hard. And it was like the equivalent of a college coach trying to get a top-five recruit – although I would’ve broke every NCAA rule there was, because I called him a million times. I text him a million and one times. And I tried to show up wherever he was every chance I got.
When I found out he was coming, I came back to my senses, and I said, “I wonder if he respects me as a man now, the way I just blew his phone up.” He had to have a girlfriend who got on his nerves worse than that before. So, I questioned myself.

Hard to argue with a plan that worked – though I wonder whether Green just opened Durant, who can become a free agent next summer, to relentless recruiting from opposing players this year.
