CJ McCollum is still critical of Golden State’s moves during the offseason, calling stars signing with the Warriors “disgusting.”
The Blazers guard was in China and made an appearance on China Central Television when he was asked: “Maybe in the future, the Warriors would become a team that everybody, when he became a free agent would join them, get a championship, and then go to another team … What do you think?”
McCollum responded he would never do that and said he’s built differently than guys who want to jump on the bandwagon.

“I would never do anything of that nature. I think that’s disgusting. It’s disgusting,” McCollum said. “I would never do that. I’m not built like those guys. I was raised differently.
“I think some players will take that route. But most guys have too much pride, want to really win on their own or in their certain organizations and aren’t gonna just jump the bandwagon.”
McCollum’s older brother, Errick McCollum, echoed the same sentiment as he wrote, in part, on Twitter: “We have been taking the harder route our whole careers, why stop now!?”
All facts no ?! We have been taking the harder route our whole careers, why stop now!? ??♂️ it’s that more satisfying when you work and fight for it https://t.co/ubxNNk65o6

McCollum’s comments come just weeks after the Blazers guard got into a spat with Kevin Durant while discussing Golden State signing DeMarcus Cousins.
