Altercation With Kevin Durant
Golden State Warriors' 2018/19 NBA season didn't begin with flying colors. Mainly because of the then-ongoing rift between Draymond and his teammate Kevin Durant.
The NBA fans first got wind of the rift between the two in November 2018 when they got involved in an on-court altercation.
Working behind the scene, Steph Curry - fellow Warriors player - mediated the peace treaty between him and Kevin. And soon enough, they all got along. The reconciling manifested itself in good team performance on the court.
