Draymond Green provided some insight on things he knows about Davis and what are some of his weakness in an interview earlier today, as he started out with Davis’ tendencies and habits.
“In watching him is what you tend to figure out is he doesn’t have a go-to move,” Green said. “A lot of people would say that’s bad. I’ll say it’s probably better, because he can do so much you can’t necessarily prepare to stop one move.
“You’ve got to guard him straight up and try to make him take tough shots. But you’re not just going to sit on his right shoulder and (make him) look like he doesn’t know how to play basketball. There are some people in this league you can do that to. He’s not one of them.”
“It’s going to be a challenge, a tough challenge. But I’m looking forward to it.”
