When speaking about the Warriors’ success in 2015, their back-court duo of Steph Curry and Klay Thompson come into the discussion as the leaders for the Warriors success. Some might consider the finals MVP, Andre Iguodala.

Yet one of the most crucial members of the Warriors was their forward, their unsung performer Draymond  Green. After being a fringe player in the first 2 seasons with the Warriors, he rose to prominence under coach Kerr and was one of their most solid, all-round performers. Throughout the 2014/15 season, he averaged 11.7 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.3 blocks a game with his career highlight coming in the final game of the 2015 Finals where he recorded a triple double.

He would not stop there. Like the rest of the Warriors squad, they have just improved, with Green being one of the most important players, now contributing 14.6 points, 9 rebounds , 7.1 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.6 blocks a game, showcasing his all round versatility. He has recorded 4 Triple doubles in the season so far.

2014/15 and 2015/16 see him as one of the key members of the Warriors’ small line up, with Green as the center. It’s his ability to guard the rim against players bigger than him and still move fast, which is why the line up works wonder for the Warriors.

It wasn’t a surprise to see him rewarded in the 2015 off-season with a 5 year $82 million contract. He is a future all star and  All-NBA team member.
