want to give some props to him, at first i thougt that as undersize, bulky and tweener type player he isn't talanted or have good enough skills to get drafted and make the jump to the NBA, but now i think teams will be right to snatch him somewhere in the draft.
just admire the way he play the game, play with superb attitude, the ultimate unselfish player, even with being the main guy will never put himself above the team and will try to help in any manner, make his teamates better, smartly read the game and using properly his attributes, know perfectly his limitation and not trying to do too much also high qulaty character and argubly the best leader in all collage basketball
i belive as NBA player, at the end, after will improve on some aspects will find way to be contributor as a roster guy, as he someone that will embrace any role or asigment and will be happy with it, kind of player that even for only locker room present very positive and importend to franchise... for comparison, maybe at best could be similar to Anthony Mson!
I don't think he'll ever play a major role with an NBA team, but he's certainly a high enough caliber player to stay in the league. I think he's an early 2nd rounder and I've really been impressed with his passing this season and last. He's strong enough to bang with NBA power forwards even though he's probably only 6'6'' and not very quick, but not all guys are set back by those detriments and Green seem like the type of guy who can still make a living in the NBA being undersized.
MSU fan here. I do believe that Draymond Green is a player who will get signed as a non-guaranteed second round draft pick. However, sometimes he does appear to be a bit selfish. What I mean by this is, that I felt often while watching him last year, despite his strides at improving his all-around game, I think he tried doign a little too much to showcase some of his skills that he thought NBA scouts will look for. His stats look great on a box score, but sometimes it's really frustrating seeing him out at the three-point line jacking up threes just to prove to scouts that he can. Also, while he's a willing passer, he forces passes way too often. For as much as our team relies on him, Draymond has made some killer turnovers at points in the game where his team can't overcome them. He's looked a little more calm at times this year, and as a diehard Spartans fan I'm hoping that he brings it all together this year, because winning will get him noticed more than anything. If he can lead this young of a Spartans squad to another strong tournament run, it will certainly improve his draft stock, and once he gets to the NBA, I'm sure he'll continue working hard to become one of those rare second round picks that sticks in the league for multiple seasons.
i don't think you interpreter it right, it true he's trying to shape himself as player who have range, probably also to show pick and pop potential for NBA scouts, but primarily to be successful for his current team cause he doesn't have good enough post up game to rely only on that, it's a legitimate thing cause in the games i saw him this year he had responsible shot selection and didn't forced.
i know he would be good, great draft pick by the Warriors, and amazing draft overall - Harrison Barnes/Festus Ezeli/Draymond Green!!
I was one from very few who didn't count him out as a impact nba player before the draft, i have to say he even top my expectations, great guy with big heart, glad for him!
I hope he doesn't try to play outside himself with his next team. He is a really good player on the best team in the league as a 3/4 option. Not sure he is the same player on a lesser team.
