As NBA All-Star weekend is well underway, the topic everyone seems to be talking about is the ongoing rift between Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. Whether it’s the two walking by each other and not speaking, shooting on different sides of the court at All-Star practice or the two deflecting questions on the topic, it’s something we’ve become strangely obsessed with.
Subsequently, the rift they’re a part of right now should and will stay between them and will work itself out without outside influence. One player who can attest to that is Kevin Durant’s teammate, Draymond Green. Often known as the voice of the Golden State Warriors, Green is choosing to take a backseat to the Durant and Westbrook feud.
“I’m not trying to be a peacemaker, ” Green told reporters Saturday. However, the quote that holds the most weight when discussing this situation was “They’re grown men,” Green said. One thing is clear, Green isn’t looking to be a mediator this weekend.
Check below to watch Green discuss the Durant and Westbrook situation in further detail.
