– We could tell a lot of stories and comedies in ten years. The characters are so different. They all come from different backgrounds. But we have developed a collective unity in how things are done, in locker rooms, on planes, in hotels. We know how to have fun, relax and keep things going, but we understand what we’re trying to do and why it’s important to win games. ”
On the way to the MVP of the first finals

– Yesterday (Tuesday) we were sitting at the same table on the plane. Bob (Warriors General Manager Myers) passed by us and said, “You guys are having fun, you’re still sitting together.” You don’t understand, it’s been ten years. That doesn’t happen, the boys are still sitting at the same table. Not even in the same group, much less at the same table, enjoying the conversation and presence of each other. This trip would not have been the same without these two boys and without Andre Iguodala. I couldn’t have imagined this trip without them, ”Draymond Green recalled.

The players had a light workout after traveling from San Francisco to Boston on Tuesday, and the priority was rest.
“I don’t know all this.” I owe Draymond some money on dominoes. I don’t want to see it so often (laughs). But it’s fun. Two days ago, I was half asleep. He and Bob were excited to talk for six hours on a plane. I was trying to get some sleep. Good times (laughs) – Klay Thompson finished. If Celtics win the duel this Thursday, the final game will be played next Sunday at 9pm in San Francisco.
