You might remember the fight that happened between Kevin Durant and Draymond Green almost 2 months ago, which resulted in speculations of Durant leaving the Warriors next summer. On top of that, Warriors were regularly losing games which is not something we are used to seeing from that team.

According to Durant, their problems are well past behind them and they turned a new page in their relationship. It seems Green's emotions were the main topic of discussion between the two all-stars and it's a known fact Green at time looses his cool during the games.

In a recent interview for The Athletic,  Durant and Green gave more context about their relationship and what they talked about in order to surpass the previous problems they were facing.

Just kind of frustrated and hopeless. Those moments, they happen. Just staying the course, having people in your corner that a) is supportive and b) not afraid to tell you that your shit stink. I think that’s important. You see so many times people like ‘yes’ men being around them. They go home and whoever lives in their house is like, ‘Oh yeah. You’re right.’ My girl isn’t like that. She’ll tell me my shit stink. My family isn’t like that. They’ll tell me. My friends will tell me.”

Green thinks the relationship he has with Kevin Durant is rare and special and that the fight between them was a minor setback on a way to achieve a much greater thing which is the NBA championship.

“It’s very rare. Obviously, we had a good relationship and then to go through something like we went through and still come out of that with a great relationship, that’s special. Those are the relationships you have for life. My deepest relationships that I have is, like, with people that I went through shit with. It could’ve been a bad argument. It could’ve been ready to go to blows. Those are my best relationships because you go through something and then you come out on the other side and y’all are tighter and better for it. Those are the special relationships.”

It seems everything is working well for the Warriors in the last couple of weeks with them being at full health and winning games. The chemistry within the team is on all-time high and it's a good sign both Durant and Green have settled their differences in order to achieve the ultimate goal, which is essentially another NBA championship.
