Last NBA season, Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green emerged onto the scene, averaging 11.7 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and 1.3 blocks per game.
Those of course were of course career highs for the man out of Michigan State, and so far this season, Green has done even better for the Warriors that are hopeful to chase 70 wins on the year.
Green is averaging 15.1 points, 9.3 rebounds, 7.4 assists, and 1.4 blocks per game, leading the NBA in triple doubles with six to show for as of January 2nd.

When Stephen Curry is on the bench, Draymond Green is the Warriors MVP. Green is averaging 15.5 points, 12.5 rebounds, and 9.5 assists per 36 minutes without Curry on the floor.
It’s clear the Green is a vital part to the Warriors success, and is arguably the team’s second best player. The question is when will we start to give Draymond Green the credit and respect he deserves?
