Draymond Green is an integral part of the Golden State Warriors, even if Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson rush to the minds of many fans before him.
He finished second in the Defensive Player of the Year vote last season, just losing out to Kawhi Leonard, and he is one of the few triple-double presences in the league today.
Despite all of that, against the Milwaukee Bucks last night, they attempted to feed the ball to their star man Giannis Antetokounmpo, who was being guarded by Green, with 10 seconds remaining.
The Olympic gold medallist made a clean steal on the Greek Freak and helped the Dubs see out the game and claim a 124-121 win.
The lesson to be learned from that endeavour is, if you're facing the Warriors and trying to win with your last play, do not go anywhere near Green.
"I think that's disrespectful to me. I take that as disrespect. Don't go at me for game. And of course I'll say that, and next game [they'll] get game or something, but whatever."
Green is a throwback kind of competitor that has the same kind of attitude as Kobe Bryant or Kevin Garnett.
He proved last night, he can back up his talk.
