ESPN reporter says Draymond Green has “Destroyed” the Warriors dynasty

NBA expert Seth Greenberg claims that Draymond Green, the star of the Warriors, is solely to blame for the demise of the Warriors’ culture. Seth describes how the defensive standout has seriously hurt his team in a now-viral tirade.

“You talk about the dynasty of the Golden State Warriors. It’s over, it’s done,” Greenberg said, via Awful Announcing. “The coach who created it is in that locker room has to take ownership of what’s going on. Don’t play the dude. He’s absolutely killing your culture, your identity, and basically everything that you built… the Golden State Warriors aren’t going anywhere. You’re going to have to blow this thing up. So why not make a strong statement saying, ‘You know what, we’ve got to go on.’”

Even though he was somewhat critical of Draymond, Greenberg didn’t end there. He also criticized Steve Kerr, the team’s head coach, for condoning this behavior and allowing his pranks to continue unchecked for years until they became more problematic.

“Your actions as a coach, as an organization, have to be a whole lot stronger. You can’t just say, ‘Hey I know it’s Draymond, we’re disappointed.’ If I’m Steph Curry, that’s your locker room. … You’ve got to take a stronger stand. Steve Kerr’s got to take a stronger stand.”

This season, Draymond has had his share of outbursts, from bickering with the referees to almost sucker punching Jusuf Nurkic. Draymond was made to pay for his offenses for the first time in a long time, and even the NBA had to intervene and say enough was enough.

Draymond believes that people should take notice of more than just the latest NBA history. Green had a history of going too far, which some say cost the club a championship in 2016. Additionally, his hit on Jordan Poole this summer may have cost them one of their greatest young players in years. Green’s behavior dates back to his early championship years.

Is This The End Of Warriors Dynasty?

This Warriors core has accomplished four titles together, so they have nothing more to show. Their hegemony altered the game irrevocably, and their legacy in basketball history will never fade.

Nevertheless, good things come to an end, and it looks like this Warriors group’s dissolution is about to happen. At the moment, every Warriors original championship winner—aside from Draymond Green, who turned 34 last month—is older than 35. Clearly, Father Time has taken its toll, and this is a major contributing factor to their overall downfall.

Additionally, there is the Klay Thompson scenario. Although Klay was once one of the best 3-and-D players in the NBA, he is far from his old self. This season, he has been benched despite averaging 17.4 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.2 assists, and 42.6% shooting per game due to injuries, age, and other considerations.

The absence of size in the front court for Golden State is arguably the team’s biggest issue. They are still weak in that area and it is unclear how they will handle stronger opponents in the postseason without a true big man to guard the rim.

In the absence of significant adjustments from the Dubs or a major development in the West, the Warriors will find it difficult to stay competitive, and it appears that their days as a top-tier contender may have finally come to an end.
