Cue Lil Wayne's "No Worries"—that song apparently epitomizes how the Golden State Warriors are feeling right now. Victors of three of the past four NBA titles, the Dubs are feeling themselves.
One must wonder, however, whether the reigning champs are at all uneasy with LeBron James coming to the Western Conference, Paul George re-upping with the Oklahoma City Thunder, and the Houston Rockets adding a hungry, veteran sharpshooter in Carmelo Anthony. As Draymond Green tells it, nothing that's happened this summer has the Warriors feeling even a little bit shaky.
In a recent interview with Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated, Draymond explained his perspective. Spears asked whether the Warriors were "worried about the Lakers."
"Teams worry about us," Draymond said. "We don't worry about nobody. We are the champs. Why do we have to worry about anybody? They have to worry about us. They say we are ruining the league. I love it!"
Classic Draymond. The Michigan State product has had an eventful summer, as he reportedly got in a tussle with Cleveland big man Tristan Thompson at a post-ESPYs party in July. A later report indicated the two players stopped short of an actual fight and eventually returned to the party "co-existing without issue, laughing and partying the rest of the night."
Draymond didn't say much about the incident, but he did post that reports about it were "inaccurate."
Green, 28, just wrapped up his sixth season with Golden State; the Dubs took him No. 35 overall in 2012. This year, the do-everything forward averaged 11.0 points, 7.6 rebounds, 7.3 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1.3 blocks per game.
