Not sure which thread will catch on so please note: I checked the game log and it seems to be His first double double, career high in points and 2nd time he has gotten 10 rebs.

DayDay made all Spartan fans and the university proud the way he played last night in closing out a tough fought series with Denver, congrats big man!!!
Green's found his offense! I'm so happy for him. He played nearly the entire game in an NBA close out game. Way to represent!
The will to succeed is important, but what's more important is the will to prepare.
Green and MSU got some love from Myron Medcalf at ESPN yesterday too. Representin' and all that.
>>A few years ago, former NBA coach Flip Saunders told me that Green was the most intelligent college basketball player he’d ever encountered.
He was a second round pick. But his time at Michigan State gave him the tools he needed to make an impact in the most critical moment of his team’s season.<<
Some high praise from his coach in the same article.
>>“You have to really pay attention and know the game to appreciate what (Green) does on the floor," Jackson told the San Jose Mercury News afterward. "It was funny to me that people would ask why he was in the game in Game 1. The guy is a winner, he's a competitor, he cares, he works his tail off, and he's going to be a coach in this league or somewhere. The guy was a coach when we drafted him. He could do that today if he wanted to. That's how good he is and how smart he is."<<
Mark Jackson has praised Draymond all season. Really gets what Draymond brings to the table.
On a side note, Stephen Curry just took the game over to start the second half. He is fun to watch.

It is ALWAYS a great day to be a Spartan!!!!
Where is the douche from Grantland today?
One of the first things I did this morning was fire up the box score from Warriors Nuggets game to take a look at Draymond's stat line. 2nd leading scorer behind Curry, and 2nd leading rebounder behind Bogut, not too shabby!! I really wish these games were on a little earlier, tough to catch when you're on EST.

I must have missed this, someone on Grantland was trashing Day Day?
Shot 50% too
If we can trick Coach Krzyzewski into saying his own name backwards, perhaps he will be pushed back to the fifth dimension
Izzo coaches 10 to 12 more years and Green retires from the NBA and is named head coach of MSU.
Slow down Sparky, lets make sure he is a competent coach first. I think he could make a very good coach but talk about putting the cart before the horse.
Hey, if Hollis is willing to hire a commissioner with no coaching experience, you never know what can happen.
Green got placed in the perfect team with the perfect coach. Jackson really understands Green and understands how he should be utilized. I have to wonder if it was anyone else if he'd be sitting lost on the bench.
Last week during a game Bill Simmons tweeted "draymond green taking a 3 in the 4th quarter of a road playoff game = high comedy".
“You have to really pay attention and know the game to appreciate what (Green) does on the floor," Jackson told the San Jose Mercury News afterward. "It was funny to me that people would ask why he was in the game in Game 1. The guy is a winner, he's a competitor, he cares, he works his tail off, and he's going to be a coach in this league or somewhere. The guy was a coach when we drafted him. He could do that today if he wanted to. That's how good he is and how smart he is."

I never read a lot of Simmons' stuff, but from what little I have I don't understand the slurpfest.
"The first hug was for Draymond Green.
As Oracle Arena fogged up with gold confetti, while the Warriors began to celebrate a series-clinching win that they nearly threw away, Green grabbed hold of Mark Jackson and held on for a while. Soon, Jackson would grab Stephen Curry. Earlier in the night, he'd told his young star, "You're going to take over this game, and then everyone else will follow." Fourteen third-quarter points later, Curry had proven him right."
Marriage is like flying with kids, if the flight had 500 connections, never ended, Ted Striker were your pilot and you ate the fish.
He also tweeted during the game last night: "@BillSimmons: The Celtics passed on Draymond Green to take Fab Melo." Which is high praise coming from him.
I think if he played for the Spurs he would be getting playing time because Popovich seems like the kind of coach he can excel under, but other than that I can't disagree with you.
What I don't get is why he had so many doubters. When a guy gets multiple triple-doubles in the NCAA tourney, it means he has loads of talent.
Nice little read I found.
Tough love is in effect here|We won't accept you as you are|Instead, we will show you a vision of what you could be and help you achieve it
Perfect team minus those colors.

I was just coming here to post this. It's a great article from a Warriors fan perspective about the impact that Draymond is having in the playoffs. Nice read.
