Warriors All 82 podcast: USA Today’s Sam Amick disusses the Olympic experiences of Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green


The Warriors had three Olympians. Each played different roles for Team USA. Each had different Brazilian experiences en route to a gold medal.

USA Today’s Sam Amick was there to document it all, covering the team from Day 1 through the medal rounds. He joins the Warriors All-82 podcast to discuss the experience. Was it really therapy for Kevin Durant just weeks after his shocking free agency decision? Did Klay Thompson enjoy his time in Rio? How did Draymond Green handle his shaky summer and lack of playing time?

Amick discusses all that and more, including 100-pound Brazilian rodents, the dangers of Ubers in Rio and potential social activism from Durant and others during this upcoming, highly anticipated Warriors season.
