One of the Golden State Warriors' major issues this season will be how the players handle the changing dynamic after the addition of Kevin Durant.
The likes of Draymond Green, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are not going to be as influential as they were during the 73-9 campaign - although, they are still going to play huge roles.
Everybody's numbers are going to take a hit - Curry is unlikely to win a third MVP award - but it seems the players are all on the same page. Ahead of the start of the season, forward Green is saying all of the right things.
Speaking to The Vertical, Draymond Green insisted he was not going to change how he approached games, saying: "I’m going to always be me.
"I’m always fine with what my role is on this team. And everybody may not like that role, but at the end of the day, I think, that helps win.
"I’m all about winning. That’s what I’ve always been about my entire life. And that’s what I continue to be about. You don’t really expect everybody to understand that. I know everybody won’t understand, but that’s not really my job to help them understand that."
The Warriors have been incredibly successful with Green playing the way he has over the past two seasons. Change is not always good, and if the Michigan State alumni can continue to play his way then that is great for the organisation
