Winning a championship is a very difficult thing to do and some of the greatest players this league has ever seen never got to experience sweet feeling of hoisting the Larry O’Brien trophy.
Besides talent, what you need the most to win a title is chemistry. If your team’s chemistry is strong and you have the talent to go along with it, you will be in the hunt.
Earlier in the week, ESPN and Ethan Sherwood Strauss published an article that would put a spotlight on Draymond Green and the Warriors’ chemistry in the locker room.
According to the article, Marreese Speights had spoken out on relationships between Draymond Green and Klay Thompson. For Thompson, one thing stuck out the most was an anonymous executive criticized the team during the NBA Finals and he believed if you want to criticize the team, you should not be afraid to attach your name to it.
Anthony Slater from the Bay Area News Group tweeted out the video of Thompson answering Rosalyn Gold-Onwude question about the article and the un-named source:

Thompson didn’t hold back, he felt the unnamed source is more of a coward for calling the team a coward. All Thompson wanted was for the anonymous source to come out and own the statement, but when you hide behind the media, then that in itself is a cowardly action.
The Warriors were on the brink of winning another NBA title last season and to think this team is in turmoil is absurd. Do the players argue at times, of course, you remember fighting and arguing with your siblings growing up. Families fight and this team is a family.
At the end of the day, it’s all about winning. If the Warriors can win right out of the gate, this story will quickly disappear.
