As Draymond Green watched the first two parts of “The Last Dance,” the proud Golden State Warriors forward saw parallels between the end of the Chicago Bulls’ run with Michael Jordan in the 1990s and the end of the Warriors’ run last season with Kevin Durant.
A reflective Green opened up about the internal strife that hovered around the Warriors all of last season as they waited to see what Durant would do at the end of it.

After watching how the Bulls handled the various issues they dealt with before and during the 1997-98 season, Green compared it to the Warriors’ dealings with Durant last year. When the season started, the Warriors had hope that Durant would opt to re-sign with the team with which he had won two straight NBA championships, despite widespread speculation that he was going to sign with the New York Knicks at season’s end.
That hope diminished as the season progressed, especially after a verbal altercation between Durant and Green during and after an overtime loss to the LA Clippers in early November.
