The entire NBA offseason has been dedicated to finding out who the next champions of the world will be after the Toronto Raptors dethroned the Warriors in the 2019 NBA Finals.
If you ask Draymond Green, however, the proverbial NBA crown isn’t as up for grabs as beat writers and bloggers alike would have you believe.
Draymond is still very confident the Warriors can go to the Finals this year – despite all the roster turnover over the summer. He also reiterated that he would like to play in the Olympics for Team USA next summer. pic.twitter.com/bKRckNxgMb

“Steph Curry on our team? Klay? Yup,” Draymond told ESPN’s Nick Friedell when asked whether he believes the Warriors can still make the NBA Finals for the sixth consecutive season.
Green was also asked about playing for Team USA in the 2020 Olympics, and he echoed his Warriors teammates in hoping to once again don the red, white, and blue in international competition.
“I think it’s a little fire under everybody to kinda see Team USA not bring home the gold this summer,” Green said. “Obviously it’s a tough group, there’s a lot of great players, so you still have to make that roster, But I’d love to play in the Olympics again.”
It sounds like Draymond’s confidence remains sky-high after a very lucrative offseason for the 29-year-old.
