You can understand why: Green is a very passionate character and isn’t afraid of bragging, getting in others’ faces, and making all of his opinions known.
Some of these detractors say that Green is all talk and no talent.
But you can’t argue with facts and the facts prove that simply isn’t true.
Most wins in a season by a player:

In fact, Green holds an NBA record that may never be surpassed.
As pointed out by StatMuse, Green has 73 wins in a single season, the most by a player.
In fact, only seven athletes in the history of the league have won more than 70 games.
Yes, he brags, and, yes, he may leave a bad taste in your mouth but Green is one talented guy.
Goodness Gracious, Green
Green racked up these 73 wins during the historic, world-famous 2015-16 season for the Warriors.
He was given this record because he participated in 73 victories during the season, more than any other player on the squad.
In total, he played – and started – in 81 games that year.
However, even though the team won a remarkable 73 matchups, they lost when it mattered most.
That’s right: that was the season when the Warriors went against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Finals and ended up giving away a 3-1 lead.
So while Green and the rest of the team broke records and really shook up the NBA world, they still fell short in the end.
However, a record is still a record and Green should be so proud of this one.
It’ll be quite a long time before any other NBA player is able to surpass what Green did back in the 2015-16 season.
