Draymond Green is not exactly the most popular player in the league. Throughout last season he was looked upon as the easy target in quite a likeable team.

However, Kevin Durant's switch from the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Golden State Warriors has changed all of that. 

The Warriors are the most despised team in the league right now as fans of other organisations look on with rueful jealousy. 

They can expect to be booed and jeered at every venue they visit this campaign, but Green is ready to embrace that. 

The forward, who came second in the race for Defensive Player of the Year, admitted silencing away arenas was one of his favourite practices throughout last season as the Dubs went 73-9.

He said: "Who cares what someone tries to make us out to be? We’re trying to win basketball games. If they want to make us the villain, that’s fine. They’re gonna boo us anyway everywhere we go, so that’s fine. 

"The most fun I have in this game is going on another team’s floor and quieting their crowd anyway. So boo, then eventually you’ll shut up. And I’ll laugh. We’ll laugh. And we’ll keep it moving."
