Draymond Green is a three-time NBA champion.

The 30-year-old has been an All-Star three times and an All-NBA selection twice, and was named NBA Defensive Player of the Year in 2017.

Former Warriors television game analyst Jim Barnett believes the No. 35 overall pick from the 2012 draft is the greatest help defender of all time.

"Draymond is an absolutely brilliant basketball mind," Steve Kerr told NBC Sports Bay Area's Grant Liffmann on the "Dubs Talk" podcast. "He's just a step ahead of everybody constantly -- at both ends. He understands more than anybody on Earth how to get Steph [Curry] and Klay [Thompson] a shot through all the chaos that's happening.

"And at the other end, he understands better than anybody on Earth exactly what's going on and how he can disrupt what the other team is trying to do.

"It's incredible to watch."

Yes it is.

"So now what's that thing that's pushing you? Legacy. I want to make it to the Hall of Fame," he told Portland Trail Blazers guard C.J. McCollum back in February 2019. "No matter what, every day I play this game of basketball, I am working towards that. And it does not stop until I'm done playing this game.

 

"Every time I step on the floor and I don't feel like playing, that's something that can push me. That's something that's gonna make me say, 'Well, if I want to do this, I have to go out here and give it 110 percent. I don't feel like waking up and working out, but I gotta go do this if I want to make it to the Hall of Fame.'
