The recent article about the Golden State Warriors from ESPN's Ethan Sherwood Strauss has caused a lot of controversy.

Not just for Marresse Speights' comments about Draymond Green but also for the "team official" that stated the Dubs played like a "bunch of cowards" during Green's absence in game five of the NBA finals - the outing that sparked Cleveland's historic comeback.

Shooting guard Klay Thompson has certainly taken offence to the comments, and told Mercury News: "The article pissed me off for this reason. If you call someone a coward, how are you not going to put your name on that quote? It's easy to point at someone and call them a coward behind like a shade or a shield.

"But why don't you put your name to it and then you can call us cowards? That's fine. Tell us that. But to say we played like cowards and you're not going to quote the guy who said it, that's weak to me, man. How you gonna quote Mo (Speights) and not anyone else? That actually got under my skin.

"You're gonna call us cowards and not put your name on the quote? You know what I mean? You're not gonna quote who said it? Get out of here. That made me mad.

"We played our hearts out that whole playoffs and you're gonna call us cowards and not put your name on it. Get out of here.
