To listen to your coach and your teammates, Dramond Green is the MVP of Game 1 against the Nuggetsand yet he was not entitled to press conference honors. We imagine that the interested party does not make an anecdote of it, but his impact was immense in the victory with his 12 points, 9 assists, 6 rebounds and 3 blocks for the numbers, and everything that he does not see in the numbers such as the physical challenge imposed on Nikola Jokic. The Serbian signed 25 points, but needed 25 shots…
“Draymond is the best defender in the world and we ask a lot of him…” klay thompson sighs. “What I want to say is that Jokic is a great player. He is an MVP, and Kevon and Draymond took the challenge and will continue to do so. Draymond is the best defender I’ve ever played with, and he really is someone who makes a difference. Without him, we are not the Warriors.”
“He is just an amazing basketball player! »
By the way, Klay Thompson remembers how Draymond Green is just as valuable on the other side of the field. ” His defense sometimes overshadows his offense, but he’s like a 2m point guard who can hit 3s. He makes the right move, he’s very good around the circle and unlocks all of our attack because he’s able to defend on the pivots and play as a midfielder. He is so unique. Who else in the NBA does that? »
It’s a true declaration of love, and Klay Thompson doesn’t stop there. A reporter asks why Draymond Green is so unique in the playoffs.
“His heart! I’ve never seen anyone play with such passion and he’s a very intelligent defender.” Clay Thompson continues. “He’s always in the right place. He’s the quarterback of our defense, and he can switch defense from base to center. He’s just an amazing basketball player. »
Same praise for Stephen Curry when asked if he ever doubted his insides. ” Never ! His intelligence is insane as he is able to make adjustments based on the person he is defending and the challenge he is facing. It’s still in the game. He has nothing else to prove, but he still has an impact on the game. When you see him play, you can’t believe his eyes. He always finds a way to make his presence felt. It’s great to see him play like that at the right time after everything he’s been through this season.« .
“I have never seen someone so competitive and intelligent. It’s a very good combination as we approach the playoffs.”
The final word for Steve Kerr. At the end of the regular season, he let him play back to back. It was a sign that Draymond Green was on the right track. He is also full of praise for the inside of him.
« Draymond is a member of the Hall of Fame. He is a two-time Olympic champion. I don’t know how many times he was an All-Star, but that’s a lot. He was the best defender in the NBA. He is one of the best players in the NBA and tonight he showed why.” the Golden State coach believes. “What makes him great is his competitive spirit. Obviously he is incredibly smart. He is a talented passer and will never be one of the best forwards in the NBA. On the other hand, I have never seen someone so competitive and intelligent. He is a very good combination when it comes to the playoffs. You need intelligence and toughness, and that’s Draymond. It’s decided, and you better not get too close to him.. »
