Draymond Green epitomizes the Warriors mentality: his motor never stops, constantly fueling the crowd and his teammates with his energy and charisma.

When Green signed his three-year, $2.6 million contract after being drafted 35th overall by the Warriors in the 2012 NBA Draft, no one expected the Michigan State product to make this much of an impact over the past three years.

Not only has he been a solid defensive presence off the bench, but his effectiveness in the playoffs has been central to Golden State’s continued success.
