Steve Kerr Sitting Draymond Green Versus Hawks After Confrontation With Kevin Durant


Twitter had some thoughts to the Kevin Durant-Draymond Green exchange and Green's turnover in their loss to LA.

Today, Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes reported that Green called Durant a "bitch" repeatedly.

Durant wanted the ball to take the last shot in the fourth quarter but Green took it up the court himself and did not get a shot off.

The Warriors announced the news, saying Green was being suspended for conduct detrimental to the team.

Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the argument carried into locker room, with multiple teammates "loudly confronting Green for decision-making on final play of regulation". However, no one had to be separated, no player left his seat, and no hint of physicality loomed in the setting, sources said.

The sensitivity of the situation is reportedly heightened given Durant's impending free agency at the end of this season.

The two stars got into it after Green elected to dribble through traffic in the remaining seconds of a tie game rather than pass to Durant, who could be seen calling for the ball.

The Golden State Warriors were a bit shorthanded Tuesday night in their home game against the visiting Atlanta Hawks, which explains why young big man Damian Jones had an extended run on the floor.

Golden State teammate Shaun Livingston characterized the exchange between Durant and Green as "just team spirit".

"Guys wanted a different outcome than what happened", Livingston told reporters. Durant was seen clapping his hands, an apparent call for the ball. He also emphasized that things like this happen all the time.
