    Actually Draymond Green was an analytics explosion, he had good efficiency, rebs, passing, versatile offensive repertoire and his defensive numbers were pretty good as well so as far as analytics go he should have gone higher. The main reason he dropped was because people were skeptical he can make it in the NBA because he didn't seem athletic enough at the time and he looked like he had limited upside since he's already a senior, it's the case of the "eye test" being proven wrong and analytics being proven right. I'm not surprised Morey didn't take him, Morey likes undersized PFs in the 2nd round but they should be athletic, see guys like Harrell and Landry, Dorsey and Harrell. But you're right, it is really depressing for the GM to have taken the most number of PFs and the most number of Greens to miss out on the best PF and best Green, we would be in amazing form now if the Rox got Draymond Green.

    One can only dream.

    Bev, harden, ariza, Green, howard

    Is a top 3 seed right now easily. Green instantly fixes our defense, rebounding, and effort... Howard can contest all day when you have green back there covering everything up and vice versa.

    Now imagine the offense with green running the pick and roll with harden... All the clean looks harden and everyone else would get, all the dunks Howard would get when green drives the rim.

    You can see how infectious his attitude is on the Warriors.

    Ahhh. One can only dream.

    Green would made Rockets a Championship team.

    Why?

    Because he would beat the crap out of Harden if he saw Harden play D like that.

    During his rookie season, Jeremy Tyler was his "leader" to show him the rope in the NBA. Tyler cried foul in practice and Green called him out for being weak and told him he can't talk to him anymore because he's too weak.

    He called out his teammate when during the Pelicans game when they were down 20 points in the 4th quarters and Curry said, "Let's make this close."

    Green said, "No, we didn't play this hard all season to make it close. We play to win. I don't play with weak talk." Warriors go on to win

    And when the Warriors were down 2 to 1 against the Cavs, he said he sucked and he needs to play better. Warriors aren't winning because he sucked and played scared. Warriors go on to win the next 3.

    First player in NBA history with a "perfect" triple double, twice.
