Draymond Green explained why Boris Diaw was his role model in the attack

During the presentation of his 2022 MVP box, Nikola Jokic explained that some of his highlights… Boris Diaw |. It has to be said that the physique, the intelligence of the game and the development of the French team are worthy of the game of the double MVP. Sunday, after the Warriors practice, it was Draymond Green who honored our Babac nation!

Six years ago, through our microphone, Nicolas Batum said: ” Boris at the time of Phoenix was the type of player. Green is harder each time on the shots and he defends something else in my opinion but that’s Boris. In fact, it’s a Boris 2.0. »

Earlier, on Sunday, a question from a journalist about the Warriors ’progress at the team level, and on Draymond Green’s progress at the individual level since his arrival in the NBA, in the fact of establishing himself as one of the best defenders in the NBA, and in his examples to the game.

At the team level, it’s no surprise, he raises the Spurs if he qualifies in this comparison.

“I think for us it’s a company with no precedent.” he explained. “I think if you’re looking for a team that we can compare ourselves to or try to compare ourselves to, it’s the San Antonio Spurs, but they’re different in the way they are. So I don’t think it’s a direct comparison with us, and I think that’s why you see that the NBA has changed today like it has in the past. the basketball we played and won with us. ”

“I learned a lot from Boris Diaw when I started my career”

At each level, he learns the powers, and starts to attack.

“I looked at the team of different guys and what they brought in and finally saw that there was no one like me, and I wanted to try to create an unheard of track for foreign players. I think I have done well. There are some people whom I have taken sick, and in my job I have continued to watch and try to take things from those people. down, I learned a lot from Boris Diaw at the beginning of my career and how he moved the ball, how he used the “hand-to-hand” and, more than just a detail in fact, his way of dealing with the ball., is unique to me. ”

On the defensive side, we see some of the best and best defenders in history, past Detroit, Chicago and San Antonio.

“On the defensive side, I tried to take things from a lot of guys. I tried to combine some of the things that Dennis Rodman did to make it stand out, but Kurt Thomas and Chuck Hayes. They are small in size, but the way they defend under the circle, they are two of the best post defenders of their size that I have ever seen. I tried to incorporate it into my game on the football side, but in the end I realized I didn’t want to be a carbon copy for anyone. ”

For Draymond Green, the main thing is not to be a model, but to be one.

“I want to go to a field where people think who Draymond is going to be, the field doesn’t know if Draymond can be like this player. That’s not what I want. I don’t know thought there would be a way for me to succeed, trying to copy some.I thought my path was about success in what I could give, and if there was anything I could do again in our position. “That’s why it’s important to me.”
