    Eggs-ACT-lee. Exactly.

    Dude, you just swiped down across his arms. They heard the slap in the cheap seats 250 feet above you. Maybe Draymond argues that he gets fouled worse with no call, something like that, but of course he does it all game long. Every game.

    It won't happen because The Basketball Gods don't want me to have nice things.

    I'm all for Draymond trying to bankrupt the GSW franchise.

    Draymond also want to be a billionaire so every little bit counts.

    You continue to debase Houston, as difficult as that is to do.

    Draymond is the guy everybody hates but wishes he was on their team. I don't know if I could stand him as a Rocket. Maybe. He is definitely "all in." No lack of effort, ever. He is just such a jerk.

    One of those players you hate when he's on the other team but you love when he's on your team.

    Warriors may continue to win titles with this group, but that luxury tax bill is going to be outrageous with the repeater penalties if they keep them for too long. Will Lacob be willing to give up that kind of money just to win titles? What happens if they don't win...as almost happened this year?

    Dubs basically have one more year with this group and then Durant's likely salary will balloon and Klay will be a free agent. If they suck it up and pay all three, along with the huge luxury tax bill, it gets worse the following year when Draymond becomes a free agent

    Makes the Anthony Davis rumors a little more real. If Davis's decides not to commit to New Orleans, would the Pels be willing to give him up for Klay and Draymond? How about Minny and Towns? Philly and Embiid? Knicks and Porzingis? How low on the totem pole do they go?

    Yup...another year and the cap will start doing what it was meant to do.

    Curry is locked up.
    Durant is about to get locked up.
    Klay has a year left before he wants more money
    Draymond has two years before he wants more.

    What will they do with Klay and Draymond? They can only pay 1 of them. Highly doubt both are willing to take below market deals to stay with GSW especially now that they both have 3 titles. Now it's going to be about the money pretty soon.

    EDIT: found some info

    https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2780426-warriors-to-try-to-sign-klay-thompson-draymond-green-to-contract-extensions

    Golden State Warriors owner Joe Lacob is planning to offer extensions to shooting guard Klay Thompson and forward Draymond Green this summer.

    As salary-cap expert Albert Nahmad noted, it's not in Thompson's best interest to ink an extension right now. An extension this summer would pay out $102 million, while a max contract in the summer of 2019 could net him $187.9 million.

    Green, meanwhile, is slated to net $17.5 million next season and $18.5 million during the 2019-20 campaign. Like Thompson, it stands to reason he would be forfeiting some serious cash if he re-upped now instead of waiting until he becomes an unrestricted free agent.

    "We've proven that if we think we're competing for a championship, we'll be in the luxury tax," Lacob said. "No one wants to be, but we expect to be. All I can tell you is we're going to sit down and do our planning on how we're going to improve the team for the future and setting ourselves up in the future. And it could go a number of different ways."

    Draymond is the emotional leader of that team. He’s the one who usually handles Durant and his drama, and he actually acts more mature than Durant at times. He grew as a professional with Curry and Klay and serves as the mouth piece for a lot of GSW’s trash talking. Draymond would probably not be a good fit for any other team other then Golden State.

    Please Draymond go get that super max or think you could be a number 1 on another team and leave. If he gets the max it probably won’t hurt GS next year, but it will hurt them in the long run (especially if Klay is wanting super max next year and is able to meet the requirements).

    If he leaves it could be a disaster for GS. GS would be fine losing Durant, and they could be ok losing Klay (but it would be a big blow). If they lose Draymond they are basically the ‘97 Rockets with two guys who appear to have issues getting along (ignoring the injury issues that Rockets team had). If they lose both Klay and Draymond forget about it, that “dynasty” is done unless LeBron heads over there.

    Nowhere in the article does he say he wants or expects the Supermax. It just says that if he wins certain awards this year, he'd be eligible for it.

    What? He is not a game changer. Only 7 or 8 players in the entire league are worth super max

    Curry
    Durant
    Lebron
    Harden
    Davis
    Kawhi
    Westbrook
    Gianna’s
