    A Boris Diaw on roids though.

    He is the ultimate glue and can do things not every role player can do.

    He is responsible for most of the D on their team much like PJ Thicc on the Rockets.

    I think in his early development, he could have learned to create his own shot more, then he didn't have to at all.

    It’s a good analogy. And Barkley should know, he had to join a real band to get a legit shot.

    Ex-players have a special level of hatred for guys who they were much better than and get compared to. Draymond and Chuck, Dwight Howard and Shaq, etc.

    I dislike Draymond Green as much as the next person, but he's been a great, great player. He's been a dominant defensive player who can guard all positions and has been the best playmaker on his team. That's a unicorn.

    yup
    besides basketball, draymond thinks he will be a better media guy than chuck
    that's impossible
    chuck is the gold standard of personality and humor for sports

    He’s still a complimentary role player. He’s good because there’s greatness around him.
    He’s not a player that can lead a team or shoulder the load. That was proven last year

    Hate him on gs but would gladly welcome him on this team. Thats been true for several years. He’s the epitome of that missing big piece they’ve been trying to find for years. I couldn’t careless what he is without those guys. That’s the only thing people can say to discredit him. What he is with guys like that is exactly what you want in a teammate. Someone who absolutely stars in their role at an elite level. He’s not out here campaigning himself as some mvp. That’s the lens people try to use to bring him down
