Draymond Green has been a king pin on the Golden State Warriors roster for 11 seasons so far. If there was one person to go upto for insights on the team, it has to he him. He may not have the best statistics but his value extends beyond to aspects of the court. His own teammates have argued saying he is their biggest backbone.
The Warriors have given NBA fans some of the best highlights in the history of the league. With Stephen Curry joining the escapade in 2009, it was all upwards from that moment onwards. Soon they formed a big three with Klay Thompson and Dray himself. Right now, they share four championships between themselves.
Draymond Green reveals his favorite moment of the court featuring Klay Thompson
Draymond Green would have been part of several legendary moments including Curry becoming the all-time three-point leader and Klay dropping record breaking draggers from the arc. He favorite moment was, “My all-time favorite Klay moment was when he went for 60 through three quarters because that game was a complete microcosm of who Klay Thompson is. He did not come to practice the day before, missed practice. He woke up late and Klay’s like, ‘Oh, I’m late, go back to bed, don’t come to practice.’”
“And then the next day, it was his way of making it right. He comes out, he has 60 in three quarters. That’s actually Klay in his attitude, it’s a big ‘f**k you.’ I’ve seen him do that numerous times like, ‘Klay was late, Klay missed.’ He gonna go make it right the second game and that was major.”
Klay Thompson repeats history the second time around
Draymond Green referred to the game when the Dub faced the Indiana Pacers on Christmas Day 2016. Thompson had overslept and missed pregame team practice which was not the ideal thing to do for a player of his stature. The 3-point specialist record 60 points including 8 threes on just 11 dribbles throughout the game.
Just like this, Thompson has had his top gun moments. After a two year hiatus because of back to back injuries, he returned to play in January. He averaged a usual 20.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 3.9 assists per game on 42.9% shooting. To top it all off, he became a playoff asset helping them and himself win their fourth title.
