The Golden State Warriors are the current National Basketball Association juggernauts.

Yahoo Sports insider Chris Haynes reported that the Warriors felt Green "cut too deep in his disagreement with Durant", leading to his suspension.

It should be noted that Draymond and Durant have had combustibility with each other before, and that it didn't stop the Warriors from winning the previous two titles.

The team took the action for "conduct detrimental to the team".

In any event, this is all very interesting to watch.

Police Commissioner, Leslie James, said there is an adequate number of security personnel at the airport around the crash site. National Transportation Safety Board has been notified of the incident, in order to support the investigation.

Durant called out Green in the huddle for not passing him the ball at the end of regulation in Monday's game, which prompted Green to fire back at Durant, sources said.

The Warriors are working through the issues on Tuesday that may have been created or even advanced.

After the 121-116 overtime loss to the LA Clippers, some witnesses described the closed-door exchange as one of the most intense of this Warriors era. According to Shams Charania, Draymond also challenged Kevin Durant about his impending free agency.

An angry late-game exchange on the bench between Durant and Green carried into the Staples Center's visiting locker room, with several of Green's teammates challenging him on his decision-making on the final play of regulation, sources said. When the game is on the line, Durant is at his best. The altercation did not get physical, but Green's vigorous defense of himself helped increase the volume in the room. Durant was seen clapping his hands, an apparent call for the ball. Veteran Shaun Livingston, meanwhile, dismissed the heated exchange as "just team spirit".

"Obviously, Dray had the turnover".
