In the current NBA season, the Golden State Warriors are struggling to find their form. In the West Conference of the NBA, the Golden State Warriors are placed in the 10th spot and are in a position to play in the play-in position. Things are not simple for the Golden State Warriors as many questions have been raised about Stephen Curry's captaincy which has forced to step in coach Steve Kerr.

As Golden State Warriors defeated Orlando Magic by 101-93, Draymond Green was removed from the match in just a few minutes of the game. This led Stephen Curry to feel the pressure. Even though he won the match it created doubt about his leadership skills as he couldn’t stop Draymond Green's behaviour. 

ESPN analyst Jay Williams also talked about Curry's leadership skills in the squad and how both Draymond Green and Stephen Curry are important to the Golden State Warriors team. While Golden State Warrior head coach Steve Kerr chose to clear the doubts as he made an appearance on 95.7 The Game radio station. He did not criticize Draymond Green directly but he defended Stephen Curry and talked about what he has done for the team.

Question should be asked to Draymond Green about his passion towards the team

“Draymond knows he’s a grown man. He’s got to handle his own business. Any mention of Steph being culpable is just ridiculous. The way Steph has carried our franchise represented our franchise for 15 years. It’s absolutely ridiculous.” (Source: The SportsRush)

While Stephen Curry has done a lot for the team and still hopes to chase the title. While this year the whole world saw Klay Thompson form getting down. In this season Klay Thompson is scoring 21.9 PPG (Points Per Game) as his average in last year was 17.4. Due to this form, he was on the bench for a while. As the big three are on the bench Stephen Curry and Draymond Green must step in. In this season so far, Stephen Curry has given everything but Draymond Green's approach towards the game is completely changed. Instead of talking about Curry's leadership skills, the question should be asked to Draymond Green about his passion towards the team.
