Warriors' Draymond Green faces 'one of the most important years of my career'

EAST LANSING, Mich. -- On a long and busy day of drills, competitive runs and bonding at Michigan State's third annual Spartan Grind Week, Draymond Green found himself last Thursday reminiscing about something other than his college days.

His phone buzzed with a text of a photo of a pair of sneakers the power forward wore during his early years with the Golden State Warriors.

"What year are these from?" Stephen Curry asked in the text.

Green, recalling those kicks, then replied: "Man, good times."

Curry, though, wasn't thinking about the past.
