In the 2017 edition of ESPN’s #NBArank, Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green finished No. 10 on the list — an impressive leap from his No. 334 rank before his rookie campaign in 2012.
Green has never averaged more than 15 points or double-digit rebounds, but his do-it-all skill set has translated into two NBA championships, two All-Star appearances, two All-NBA Team selections, three All-Defensive first-team honors, a Defensive Player of the Year award and an Olympic gold medal.
It’s been quite an illustrious career already for the tweener who was the 35th pick in the draft.
In a Q&A with ESPN, Green discussed what it has taken for him to become a top-10 player in the league, his aspirations for the remainder of his career and his thoughts on Carmelo Anthony’s highly debated place in the rankings.
