Draymond Green says Warriors should get four All-Stars again

From ESPN - January 11, 2018

MILWAUKEE -- The Golden State Warriors have the best record in the NBA at 33-9 and Draymond Green told ESPN he believes they should have four All-Stars in next month's showcase in Los Angeles because of their success.

The reigning Defensive Player of the Year is advocating for himself, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant. All four made it last year.

"We are winning and everyone is playing well," he told ESPN. "Why not?"

If that quartet of players was selected, it would be an unprecedented feat. No team in NBA history has ever had four All-Stars in back-to-back seasons.

"That would be crazy," he replied.

Recent history has shown that four All-Star caliber players on the same team tend to be rewarded with an All-Star berth if that team happens to have the best record in the NBA. The power forward said he's caught wind of some arguing Golden State should not get four in.

"I kind of heard quite a bit this year that we should only get three max, but I do not see why not four?" Green said to ESPN. "If winning has been the [blueprint to get four stars in] every year, why should it change up?"

This time last year the Warriors were the top team in the association at 36-6. And two years ago, the season they won an NBA record 73 regular-season games, they were 36-2 at this point.
