Yeah, definitely keep in touch. You know, here and there, I have seen Draymond in the summer. We ran to each other at a restaurant. It was good to see him and his family.
Talked to Steph a couple of times. So, it’s good to see from afar everybody’s doing well. And realize that these bonds that we created will never be broken, no matter what jerseys we put on, no matter what part of the country that we are living in.
It’s just like when you see guys you won a championship with, you had long playoff runs with, you know, you have a different connection. So, I am very grateful for my time in the Bay area. I will always be a Warrior in my heart.
It is good to see Kevin Durant still keeps in touch with his former teammates. Winning a championship creates memories and experiences, and Durant seems to have loved his time in the Bay area. Kevin Durant is a Warriors legend, and he will always be welcomed there.
