Draymond Green: Winning an NBA Championship is better than sex

The Golden State Warriors look unstoppable right now, playing the kind of basketball that other teams and head coach in the NBA can only dream of.

The Warriors are looking to break the '95-96 Chicago Bulls' mark for best ever regular season record, which currently stands at 72-10. At 54-5, Golden State have a pretty good shot of reaching Michael Jordan's sides record and potentially even surpassing it, firmly writing their names into the record books as one of the greatest teams of all-time.

With the Bulls regular season record, comes a pretty good chance for the Warriors to win back-to-back NBA Championships. Draymond Green wants to recreate that feeling of winning a title a lot, and we mean a lot.

Speaking to Sports Illustrated about what his motivation is for his playing style and incredible enthusiasm, Green gave an incredible answer.

According to the Warriors star, his biggest motivating factor in basketball right now is the fear of not winning another Larry O'Brien trophy. The reason? Well, because the feeling of winning a Championship is better than sex, naturally.

Green plays with his heart on his sleeve night after night and it is a big part of the reason why he's become one of the most dominating centers in the league while standing at just six-foot-seven. 

Sometimes Green's emotions do get the better of him, like the game against the Oklahoma City Thunder last weekend where he reportedly went on a verbal tirade directed at head coach Steve Kerr after having a poor first half. 

The Warriors know all about Green's emotive play and occasional outbursts that naturally come with it. Speaking in the aftermath of the reveal, they were all pretty cool about it. The Warriors wouldn't be where they are now if it wasn't for Draymond Green, that's a fact.

Green is averaging 13.8 points, 9.7 boards and 7.4 assists per game so far this season. He's also nearly making 40 percent of his shots from three-point range.

Keep being you Draymond.
