Triple Threat: Watch the New Warriors Trio Share the Court for the First Time

You’ve got to see Durant, Green and Thompson in action.

Published July 23rd

Team USA got off to an amazing start in the first game of the Olympic preparation run as they defeated Argentina 111-74. The game saw, for the first time, new Golden State Warriors teammates Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson share the court.

The NBA stars didn't even realize the magnitude of their joint efforts during the game.

"When you're out there right now, you don't even think about the fact that we're teammates," Green told ESPN. "We're all teammates right now. Honestly, if you want me to be quite frank with you, I didn't even notice me, Klay and KD were out there together."

Durant seemed to echo his sentiments: "I didn't really notice. I was just lost in the game. We didn't really talk about it."

KD seemed to also not notice the moment Green set a screen for him, freeing him to slam a 3-pointer, and even giving him a low-five after the flawless execution. 

"All I saw was USA across the chest," he said. "When you're playing out there with players who know how to play the game of basketball, it just makes it so easy for you."

Though Durant, Green and Thompson only played together for two minutes, their power was only amplified when they were in pairs, specifically with Green playing center and Durant at small forward.

Take a look at what went down on the court in the clip, below:
