Draymond Green named the 34 players drafted before him in the 2012 NBA Draft


Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green turned out to be one of the best picks of the 2012 NBA draft. But he has a bit of a chip on his shoulder because 34 people were picked before him. Despite a stellar career at Michigan State, Green fell to the second round of the 2012 NBA Draft, where the Warriors scooped him up with the 35th pick. He hasn't forgotten the 34 players picked ahead of him in 2012. In fact, he can apparently name each one — in their order of selection.

Amazing. These 34 players motivated him to become one of the power forwards in the league.

Draymond is a Dennis Rodman type player with an offensive game. He can pass, shoot, penetrate, defend, and block shots. Basically, he can do just about everything and can even cover and play every position on the court. He has been in the running for defensive player of the year the past few years but has never won, however, he is still and NBA Champion, an All-Star, and a 2-time All-Defensive first team.

He is the best point forward in the NBA and one of the most intelligent players on the court.


Kobe Bryant never forgot Allen Iverson after this game!
