Draymond Green was fantastic last night against Cleveland Cavaliers with 32 points, 15 rebounds, 9 assists and with 6 three-pointers.
He was the best player for the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals, and he is the best all-around player in the league and he is in the top 10 players on my list.
Last night, he showed us that he is a great man. He has a big heart on the court, but also he has a big heart after the game when he gave hugs LeBron James and congratulated him for the NBA Championships. Many players are not capable of doing that, but Draymond Green proves us that he is the class act.
Green told the media after the game:
“I mean, when I walked in the locker room, I sat down. Obviously they were jumping around, so you wouldn’t be able to congratulate anyone at that point anyway. So when I sat down, I knew it wasn’t right for me to just sit in there. Those guys, they earned it, and I knew that it was my duty, pretty much, to go back out there and congratulate them on a great series and on a great season and on winning the championship.
Like I said, I hate to lose, but you learn something from everything. I take pride in being a high-character guy, and to just leave the floor like I did, I wouldn’t have been able to — I wouldn’t have felt right about myself for a long time if I didn’t go back out there and congratulate those guys on what they accomplished. So, once I sat down for a minute, I knew that the right thing to do was to go out there and congratulate them on a great season, great series, and on winning the ring.”
