Draymond Green praises himself in an extremely Draymond Green way

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green isn't the type of guy to mince his words.

He is one of the real locker room leaders for the Warriors and he is just as vocal in the press.

Green almost had a sensational year last season as a major part of the Dubs unit that won a record-setting 73 regular season games, eclipsing the previous record set by Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls back in 1996.

However, they fell short in seven games to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals to miss out on back-to-back championships, and Green finished second in the race for Defensive Player of the Year behind Kawhi Leonard of the San Antonio Spurs.

That is not something Green plans on happening this season. In fact, he thinks his defensive play so far this year has been "incredible".

"I think I've been incredible defensively this year. It's one of the things that I really locked in on; I focused in on. I'm so locked in on that end of the basketball (court) right now. It's fun.

"And I think part of the reason I'm so locked in on it is because of everybody talking about what we can't do on that end and how we'll struggle on that end - just all the doubt on that end from everyone -- it just has me at another place mentally."
