This probably doesn't mean anything in the grand scheme of things, but it has certainly felt like the chemistry is less great in Golden State these days than it has been the last few years. When Cousins comes in and is playing on an expiring contract, will everyone be happy with the money they make?

I think they're all sitting around waiting for things to get exciting. IN the meantime the rest of the NBA can't defeat them, so they mess with each other.

keep having connection problems, but there is an article on espn that this continued in the locker room after the game... possible Durant and Green don't get along very well and that could be significant with both facing free agency soon.

Supposedly Green threw free agency in Durantís face during the argument. Sounds pretty pathetic by Green. Makes a terrible play that costs them, gets called out, then goes all ďwhat do you care? youíre gonna leave anyway *sadface*.Ē

I think thereís a little smoke there, could be the start of something. Just need DMC to engulf everything.

Love how people are worried about our talent and touches but think Cousins can be effective in a much smaller role than heís ever used to, coming off a major injury, playing for his perhaps last major contract.

Seeing them implode with DMC would be truly hilarious. Iíve always loved his game, but Iíd love the Warriors to fail more. Cannot stand any of their stars except Klay

Egos ultimately kill everything when it comes to pro sports. GS time is coming to end after this year. I legit wouldn't be shocked to see Curry the only one on that team afterwards.

Nah. I think Durant is a goner in free agency because the scrutiny seems to get under his skin despite his insistence that it doesn't, but that makes it easier to bring Klay and Draymond back which I think they do.

Depends on what Thompson wants to do.

Green repeatedly called Durant ďa <snip>Ē after he was called out by the two-time NBA Finals MVP in the huddle for not passing him the ball, sources said. The organization is of the belief that Green cut too deep in his disagreement with Durant, sources said.

They are suspending him for calling him a female dog?

I mean, clearly GSW is taking a side here. They are two grown men, and suspending one player (believe me, Iím no Green apologist) for calling another player something like that, in the locker room, seems like they are trying to appease KD and his fragile ego.

You can definitely tell there's one they're more afraid of leaving in FA. Wonder how Green will take this

Exactly. If they gave him the night to cool himself off or whatever, fine. But as a suspension, this will cost him six figures. And apparently KD was the instigator, mad Green didnít give him the ball and instead turned it over.

Iím sure itíll blow over for now, but wouldnít be surprised if this rears itís head again at some point.

A blip could make things mildly interesting for the rest of NBA fans.  Its painful watching them. Klay looked like one of the best scorers in the NBA in that 4th quarter.  Not mad at 'em, but it's just ridiculous.
