Draymond Green's credentials are well known, but the Warriors forward added to his legacy Friday night when he won his second gold medal by helping Team USA defeat France 87-82 in Tokyo.

In winning his second gold medal, Green joined a historic group of legends to win three NBA titles and two gold medals.

Any time you're in a group that includes Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James, you're doing a whole lot right.

The road to gold was a bit bumpier than normal for Green and Team USA, but Kevin Durant, Devin Booker, Jrue Holiday and Green were able to carry the Americans to their fourth straight gold medal.

After the win, Green and Durant, naturally, took to social media to call out all of their doubters, and then Green delivered a message to the basketball world that is chasing Team USA.

"A lot of sacrifices went into this," Green told NBC Bay Area's Raj Mathai. "A lot of people were saying the world has caught up to the USA. They gave us a tough run. But this is still our game."
