 To anyone who does not know, Durant and Green argued on the court about Green’s decision to not pass the ball to Durant. It continued to the locker room, following which Green was suspended for a game. Durant was recently on Draymond’s show Chips, where they ultimately discussed the whole situation once again.

Naturally, people maintained their opinions, especially as Durant admitted that how the argument was dealt with did contribute to his decision to leave the Warriors and join the Brooklyn Nets.

That being said, analyst Stephen A. Smith is asking a question that he feels no one has been asking – where was Steph Curry?

Is Steph Curry to blame for the Green-Durant situation

Smith questioned Steph Curry, stating that he found it “conspicuous” that Durant and Green never mentioned Curry at all.

“Not one time. Because a lot of time we see things, and we have seen things that have transpired with the Golden State Warriors. And other stars from other franchises would have been called upon to handle something. We’ve never done that with Steph Curry.”

He added that no one ever asks that of Curry, and maybe it is because of his lovable personality, but everyone is aware that he is the golden child at Golden State.

Do fans agree with what Smith has to say about Steph Curry?

While some did agree that the leader needs to bind the team together, many mentioned that Curry was away due to his groin injury. Snippets of reports were shared, stating that Curry met with Green and Durant in private when the team returned to Oakland.

That being said, Durant did admit that while he cherishes his time with the Warriors, he needed to move on. It does not take away the ‘what if’ factor away, which could have lead to maybe another title for the Warriors in the end.

Curry’s last season brought in the necessary MVP chatter, even though the team was eliminated after their play-in loss. Hence, with his core around him, he could receive the help he needs for a deep playoff run.
