Tongue in cheek?
It not, this isn't about Oubre showing confidence by saying he wants to have the largest role possible. This is Andrew Bogut reporting that a player on the team has been offended enough by Oubre's statement essentially refusing to come off the.bench behind Klay Thompson or his CURRENT TEAMMATE Andrew Wiggins, to have chastised Oubre to his face.
Think about ehatbhebrraooy said, during a season and a playoff pursuit, not post season, not during his free agency, but while suiting up next to these guys he said "I want this at your expense." And that really is what he said. Either he wants to pull Wiggins card and take his spot, or he is saying "eff Klay Thompson and his gimpy legs," or he is saying, "Im out. I won't be back and screw the cap implications to the guys I will be leaving behind, but don't let it affect how wenkay together this year, it's all good, right?"
It's an idiot statement to have made and I would be baffled if it didn't cause friction. Draymond chewed his ass off about blown rotations a couple of times last game and he had not be vocally negative towards Oubre prevouoly. Something has changed tone wise. Maybe it's cause by the losing, but maybe it's contributing to the losing.
