Published 01/19/2023, 7:50 AM EST

Draymond Green’s resume is impressive. He has got 4 championship rings, a DPOY, 4x NBA All-Star, 7x All-Defense, was once a steals leader, and still remains a force to be reckoned with on the court. Green’s contributions to the Golden State Warriors have been phenomenal. It can be argued that he has all the makings and materials to bag another honor that is bestowed upon the best players in the league. He is yet to achieve that, though he ardently hopes for it.

Draymond Green stated that he would love to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. The NBA world has vouched for his wish saying Green “100% deserves” to be among the honorees.

The NBA Twitter-verse was flooded with messages supporting his wish with stats. The commentary also spoke volumes about how Draymond Green shouldered the Warriors.

According to Green, he said his induction would be different from other players. It seemed like he was acutely aware of his route to get to the Hall of Fame. He said, “But my route won’t be the typical route. You won’t go and look at my stats and say, “This guy’s a surefire Hall of Famer.” However, speaking to ‘The Athletic, Draymond Green believes that if anyone studied his game, that would make his case.

He also said that he has more work to do and to build his case. But Green’s desire seems to hold strong. He said, “I think I’ll — and I hope I’ll — be in the Hall of Fame“.
