From Draymond Green:

“Their shooting is great but it goes far beyond that. Playing with those guys, the way they conduct themselves, with what they bring to the team, it’s not about them. It’s no ego involved with it, and it makes them a pleasure to play with, a pleasure to be around. When you have guys of that stature — Steph has really already moved into superstardom, Klay is moving into it — and you don’t see a change? It’s still even-keel, it’s still who they are. That does a lot for team chemistry. When your two main guys, your two dawgs, your two go-getters, have an attitude like that, how can anyone else be selfish or have an ego?”

“I’ll take whatever role I can get and try to make the most out of it.”

Following the Warriors loss to the LA Clippers:

“I don’t think we were intense as far as having that fire, but I don’t think they were, either. I don’t know what the cause of it was. Maybe everybody was a little too jolly. But it was too nice. It was too boring. I’m sure it wasn’t the prime time game everybody expected. There was no, ‘I don’t like you’ and ‘You don’t like me,’ There are some guys on that team that I really respect, but there was no fire, no dog. It’s no secret that we don’t like them. They don’t like us. I don’t know why the game was that nice, trying to act like we like each other when we don’t. It was a boring game.”

“I’m going to do whatever it takes to win. I trained all summer. When I’m playing against those bigger guys, I’m always going to play with a chip on my shoulder and battle. It’s all about battling. It’s an all-out battle. I battle even harder when I’m going up against those guys because you kind of have to prove a point. I ain’t going to just be no pushover. It’s not going to be as easy as you think it’s going to be. You’ve got to fight me.”

Kerr, who hit one of the most famous Finals shots because Michael Jordan passed out of a double-team, has a theory on why there’s so much demand for superstars to take the last shots:

“It’s because people are idiots, that’s why. The point of the game is to get an open shot and if a guy’s double-teamed he should pass it. That’s the game.”

“I don’t really care about numbers. I’m the linchpin defensively, set good screens, and rebound. All good teams have players that have to give things up. When you’re on bad teams, you have guys like myself, Steph, Harrison all fighting for touches saying, ‘I want mine, I want mine.’ I’ve been on both ends of it, and I understand what it takes, and I’m happy to play my role.”

“I’d like to think I have a high IQ, so I enjoy it. I enjoy passing. I enjoy being a team. There’s not many teams that play team-oriented basketball these days in the NBA. There’s only about five or six. The rest is a lot of isolation-based stuff, and that’s not one of my strengths.”
