Kevin Durant got an odd welcome from Team USA at their arrival in Tokyo, and Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green is taking credit for leading the prank against his former teammate.

Durant is seen as one of the key players looking to lead the Americans back to gold after a rough start to their Olympic journey, but his teammates were keeping things loose as the team arrived in Tokyo. The group was seen serenading Durant with a very odd song choice, and getting some viral attention for it.

Andy Murray to skip French Open and focus on Wimbledon after groin issues persist

In the latest setback of a miserable season, Andy Murray has dropped his plans to participate in the French Open — which starts a fortnight today — after experiencing a recurrence of groin pain while training in Rome. His intention now is to make an early start in his grass-court preparation in order to be as ready as possible for Queen’s and Wimbledon — the two most productive tournaments of his career. Clearly, he will first have to overcome this lingering and mysterious groin problem, which first surfaced just before the Miami Open in March. Murray travelled out to Rome a week ago to test himself in a series of practice sessions with leading players. He is understood to have taken Novak Djokovic to a tie-break in their unofficial set last Sunday, and also

Warriors’ Draymond Green says getting ejected against Hornets was worse than his 2016 NBA Finals suspension

Draymond Green getting suspended for Game 5 of the 2016 NBA Finals is one of the greatest “what if” moments in recent NBA history, because had he been able to play in that game, perhaps the Warriors don’t blow a 3-1 lead, resulting in the greatest comeback in NBA Finals history which led LeBron James to exclaim “Cleveland this one is for you!” at the top of his lungs in triumph. 

It was a significant moment with monumental consequences for Golden State, so you may understand why it’s surprising that Green feels more upset about being ejected from Saturday night’s game against the Hornets than that suspension in the 2016 NBA Finals.

During the closing seconds of the Warriors-Hornets game, Green was assessed back-to-back technical fouls for arguing with the referees after Charlotte was awarded a timeout — and possession of the ball — while Green and Gordon Hayward were

Draymond Green Went On Brutally Honest Rant About The NBA

Draymond Green addressing the media.

Draymond Green has never been one to shy away from letting his true feelings on a subject be heard. That’s why it shouldn’t surprise NBA fans that the Golden State Warriors forward went on a rant for the ages following last night’s win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Cleveland announced a few days ago that it will sit Andre Drummond until it finds a trade partner. As a result, the talented center had to watch Monday night’s game from the sidelines.

While the Cavaliers are obviously trying to make sure that Drummond doesn’t get hurt, Green pointed out a clear double standard in the NBA.

“To watch Andre Drummond, before the game, sit on the sidelines, then go to the back, and to come out in street clothes because a team is going to trade him is bulls**t,” Green said. “Because when James Harden asked
