Over the past decade, the Warriors’ “Big Three” of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green have gone through highs and lows together. Injuries: Tears. Doubt. Six NBA Finals appearances. Four championships.

While Golden State’s last title proved that the trio still got it and isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, the reality is that this dynasty will eventually come to an end.

When that happens, Warriors coach Steve Kerr has an idea of ​​what the future could hold for each of his stars.

Kerr sat down with NBC Sports Bay Area Warriors reporter Dalton Johnson and predicted where he sees Curry, Thompson and Green in 20 years.

“Draymond will train in the NBA,” Kerr said without hesitation. “He is going to leave the game. retired. He will be doing television for some time and will be very successful. And then he’s going to get bored because he’s going to miss the competition, so he’s going to go into coaching.”

Sounds about right.

While all three players are known for their competitiveness, Green is the most genuine of the bunch and his passion for the game is unmatched.

Green, 32, regularly coaches the team’s younger guys, such as Jonathan Kuminga and James Wiseman, who credit Green for his continued mentorship and guidance.

But his love for the game goes beyond the floor. His podcast, The Draymond Green Show, is proof of that, as Green takes his knowledge on the court and shares it with the world through the microphone.

He also makes occasional appearances on TNT’s Inside the NBA through his multi-year deal with Turner Sports.

But as Kerr pointed out, Green’s competitive fire could make it difficult for him not to return to the game in some shape or form down the road.

Coach Green has a nice ring to it.

For the 34-year-old Curry, Carrey’s prediction seems apt.

“Steph will be on the senior tour playing golf,” Kerr said firmly.

Curry is the greatest 3-point shooter of all time and single-handedly changed the game of basketball. But he has always shown his love for the game of golf. And he’s good too.

Curry is a regular contender for the American Century Championship and has made numerous appearances on the Korn Ferry Tour.

The cross-sports star was even added to PGA 2K23 as a playable character in the video game.

It wouldn’t be surprising if Curry took his talents from the basketball court to the golf course and found success there as well.

While all of Kerr’s predictions seem like likely outcomes in the future, his prediction of Thompson’s future is almost a given.

“And Clay will sail around the world and no one will be able to find him,” Kerr said.

If there’s one thing Thompson loves more than basketball, it’s the ocean. After back injuries to his lower leg kept him off the court for more than two years, he turned to the ocean and sailed alongside his furry best friend Rocco on the long, long road to recovery.

The emphasis, however, is on the last part of what Kerr said.

No one will be able to find him.

Thompson has never been one to draw attention, and he tries to keep as low a profile as a professional athlete can. After he retires from the NBA, whenever that may be, there’s probably a good chance Thompson will willingly drop off the map as he continues to live his best life.

After all, there’s really no telling what the future holds for the Warriors’ Big Three. No matter what, though, there’s no doubt that Dub Nation will never forget what they did together in the Bay.
