Jelissa Hardy (Draymond Green)
Draymond Green met girlfriend Jelissa Hardy when the two of them were at Michigan State University together. In what shouldn’t be any surprise: Hardy was a basketball player herself, playing on her high school team before suffering chronic back injuries that wouldn’t let her pursue the sport any further. Green and Hardy both graduated college in 2012, and Hardy she briefly pursued a modeling career afterwards, Hardy appears to be a “full time mom” now.
The couple share a child from a previous relationship of Hardy, and welcomed a baby boy (also named Draymond) in early 2017. In 2015, Green donated $3.1 million to Michigan State University, which is the largest pledge from an athlete in the school’s history.
