Even on a team that has three of the best offensive players in the NBA, Draymond Green is often considered the heartbeat of the Golden State Warriors. He’s the anchor of their defense – one that finished the regular season behind only the San Antonio Spurs in efficiency without a “true rim protector” – in addition to being a walking triple-double and a trash talking machine that would make Kevin Garnett proud. Put it all together and it explains why their point differential falls by 10.3 points per 100 possessions when he’s on the bench.
It’s also why he’s perfect to star as Kendrick Lamar in a “Humble” parody made by Athletes Underground. In the one minute video, Green raps about his defensive dominance – “Check my point allowances, you’ll see I’m not allowing shit” – his blocks that go viral – “I’ll make a highlight fucking up your whole life” – how Kevin Durant’s arrival didn’t stop him from breaking records this season – “First triple-double ever done not including points” – and a whole lot more. It’s basically his Game 1 performance against the Portland Trail Blazers in music form.
“I don’t fabricate it, Dray/ Steph, KT, KD and Dray/ Everybody in the Bay/ Bitch it’s hard to be humble”
It doesn’t look like Green has seen the video yet, but it’s hard to believe he wouldn’t appreciate it given how true to life it is. The Warriors could punch their ticket to the next round by the end of the day, though, so he’ll have plenty of time to catch up if they take care of business against Portland.
