Draymond Green looking forward to playing with DeMarcus Cousins once he’s healthy

Q. I know you’ve said in the past that DeMarcus Cousins is the best big man in the league, and you have a lot of respect for him. How much do you look forward to once he’s healthy working him in? And also Jordan Bell wants you and DeMarcus to scrap a little bit on the court and get into it and he wants to commentate. So what’s your take on that potential lineup?

DRAYMOND GREEN, Golden State Warriors: “Definitely looking forward to DeMarcus getting healthy. Obviously DeMarcus is one of the most talented players in our league. Most people see, oh, man, DeMarcus went to the Warriors, they won. And it ain’t that easy. Like that’s 26 points a game you’re working into the lineup. Like it’s tough.

“But that’s the fun part. The fun part is making it work. I think back to when KD (Kevin Durant) came here, everybody, oh, man, they’ve got Kevin Durant, they won 73 games, it’s over.

“And honestly the fun part wasn’t winning the championship. The fun part was during the year figuring that out, how we was going to make that work. And I’m looking forward to the same thing with DeMarcus.

“As far as me and DeMarcus scrapping it out, what did he say, scrapping it up? Why does Jordan want me to fight? Why don’t he want to fight? He’s a young guy. He should be the one wanting to fight. I’m getting old. So he can have that.”
