Everyone realizes that the Golden State Warriors are an unbelievable offensive team. That is the nature of a club that deploys Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson at the same time with fantastic supporting pieces in Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston and even Draymond Green. Some overlook just how dominant the Warriors can be on the defensive end, but Green doesn’t usually hesitate to remind both the media and Golden State’s direct competition.
On Monday, Mark Medina of The Mercury News caught up with Green through the prism of discussing the Houston Rockets. Many believe that the Rockets, with Chris Paul on board, are the biggest challenger to the Warriors in the West and Green credited Rockets GM Daryl Morey with being “a man of his word” and taking “some risks” in getting Paul and bolstering Houston’s roster.
With that said, Green’s public comments were soon followed by a reminder from a media member of a quote that Rockets head coach Mike D’Antoni gave earlier this month.
