Draymond Green shocked the NBA world when he drilled his first shot attempt upon his return. And what was even more surprising was that it was a three-pointer.

Bleacher Report shared the video of Draymond’s first basket after return on X, “Draymond hits a three on his first shot.” The NBA World misinterpreted the caption and trolled Draymond despite his incredible comeback. Fans brought up Draymond’s controversial past and made some hilarious remarks on X. One fan wrote, “Thank god I thought he hit three players at once.” Similar reactions followed.

Although Draymond got trolled on social media upon his return, the fact that his first basket was a three-pointer shocked everyone. Draymond has never been known for his shooting ability. He is a career 31.7 percent shooter from beyond the arc. However, this season has been different for the former DPOY. Draymond is having the best shooting season of his career this season. He has shot 42.9 percent from the three-point line this season.
