Draymond Green: "They Know They Don't Stand A Chance"

Draymond Green:

Golden State Warriors superstar point guard Stephen Curry said that he would select his teammates for the All-Star Game if he were named a captain under the NBA's revamped format, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN. If he is fortunate to be selected as a team captain, Steph Curry says he will do everything he can to select as many of his current Golden State Warriors teammates to join him. "Until you run out of those options, then you gotta figure it out". Under the new format, the top two vote-getters in the league will be designated team captains.

When asked specifically who would be his first non-Warriors selection, Curry kept his response moderate. "You don't go into a draft knowing who picked 9, 10, 11".

The All-Star Game has lost its appeal in recent years as players have chosen not to take it seriously and is short on intensity. "You got to see how it all unfolds".

Although the core of Curry, Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green will get the most headlines on the Warriors roster, this deep bench could make a significant impact over the course of an 82-game season while keeping the stars fresh for the playoffs.

"I don't see it as a bad idea".

The head coach said the 2017-18 squad is "deepest team we'll probably ever have here", via Anthony Slater of The Athletic. It's pretty f-ing sick to see how everybody is just in a f-cking panic about what to do. Trying to switch it up.

Curry may have a good chance to be selected as a team captain as well.

But Curry doesn't believe that will be the case. And you mix up the conferences and the different lineups you can get out there.

"My mom used to always tell me: It's not about beating the person in front of you, it's about beating the person inside of you", Green said.

"There's been All-Stars for years, and the past six years probably certain lineups and notable guys that have been playing together in the Western Conference and the Eastern Conference, and now you can switch it up a little bit".
