In this interview, Draymond Green is asked who the best defender of all time is. He, of course, says himself, which has opened a dialogue on who people think the best defender of all time is. Some think this is an insane claim, some find it to be reasonable… There is a lot to uncover here…
Best defender of all time?
“Me. That’s what I believe. Wholeheartedly.”
— Marcus Thompson (@ThompsonScribe) May 17, 2019
He is extremely versatile with an extremely high basketball IQ. At his size, 6-foot-7 230 pounds, the heart, and fight he shows when guarding NBA big men is unmatched. I’ve never seen a guy his size give forwards and centers trouble in the paint quite like Dray.
He refuses to be bullied and takes it personally when he’s scored on. The man is the heart and soul of the NBA’s latest dynasty, his talent is undeniable.
I say all that to say I’m not sure he’s actually the best defender of all time.
