Draymond Green explains why he's sad despite Stephen Curry's 3-point record

Draymond Green & Steph Curry

Green details why he still felt a bit sad after Curry broke the record

Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden was arguably one of the greatest nights in league history. Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry finally took the crown as the all-time leader in 3-point field goals made

We can assume that every soul donning the Warriors jersey was jumping for joy after Curry drained the history 3-pointer. After the game, Draymond Green confessed that he was happy for Curry. But at the same time, he is sad that Klay Thompson was not around during the historic night.

“I think the only thing missing for me was Klay not being here, just with the road traveled to get here, Klay was a huge part of that. So if anything could have been different, it was that. But other than that, very, very special night for a special person, for a special person. Very special. Great to be a part of," Green said.

As Green noted, Thompson did not travel with the Warriors to New York as he is still in the middle of rehab. Together with James Wiseman, Thompson had spent time with the Warriors' G League affiliate, the Santa Cruz Warriors. Thompson even hit a game-winner in one of the scrimmages. On Wednesday, the team recalled both players from the G League squad. 

Earlier this month, Thompson said that he could be back in a few weeks or a month, noting that it is difficult to say at this point. The Warriors themselves have not released an official timeline for a good reason. They want to ensure that Thompson returns healthy after two years of inaction. Per Sideline Sources, Thompson himself does not fear getting hurt again.

If Thompson was in the building, not only would he have witnessed Curry's record-breaking 3-pointer, but he'll be gifted with an engraved Rolex from his Splash Brother. Of course, Curry has one reserved for him. But it would have been memorable if he received it together with Andre Iguodala and Green — two of his longest-tenured teammates.
