Green’s playmaking allows both Splash Brothers — and now Jordan Poole — to always get wide-open shots.
His versatile defender provides Kerr with a Swiss-army kind of guy for his rotations, as he’s one of the few players who can actually guard one through five.
But more than that, his basketball IQ is what makes him stand out from the rest of the pack, at least if you were to ask Curry about Green’s best trait:
“He’s always in the right place at the right time,” Curry said. “He’s always making the right reads. Even as smart as he is, he still surprises you with the plays that he makes on a nightly basis. And that Portland game, the Atlanta game, he just — he’s always impacted the game on that end of the floor. And if you know basketball and you appreciate what good defense is, you’ll learn something from him every night.”
Of course, having Draymond on your team means you’ll also have to deal with his antics and temper, which often come with multiple technical fouls.
But then again, if that’s the price to pay to have one of the most intelligent and versatile players of his generation, then so be it.
At the end of the day, the Dubs would’ve never been the dynasty they were without Green on the floor.
