The verbal altercation between Kevin Durant and Draymond Green on Saturday was nothing more than an attempt by Green to light a fire under his superstar teammate.
Green is said to be trying to use reverse psychology, intentionally and aggressively approached Durant with a bevy of choice words during a break in Saturday’s loss to the Sacramento Kings.
Durant, who had his worst game with the Warriors as he went 2-of-10 from the field and finished with a season-low 10 points, wasn’t his typical engaged self that evening.
Green’s approach sparked a verbal spat that lasted roughly 30 seconds.
“F— you” obscenities were repeatedly tossed back and forth by both players. Durant was enraged. Sources said Green, knowing he had accomplished his goal, began winking and smiling at some of his teammates and coaching staff.
