Draymond Green: 2012, Round 2, Pick #35
Perhaps you’ve heard of him? Draymond Green wasn’t exactly unheralded after leading Michigan State to two Final Fours, recording the seventh triple-double in NCAA tournament history.
Still, no one expected much in the NBA from this undersized tweener, including then Warriors coach Mark Jackson who brought Draymond off the bench behind David Lee.
Perhaps that’s why Jackson is calling the NBA Finals now while Steve Kerr leads Draymond and the Warriors in an attempt for their fourth title in five years.
