    Coach Nick went through Game 1 of the Western Conference Playoffs First Round between the Golden State Warriors and the Portland Trail Blazers to explain what makes Draymond Green such a great defender. There are highlight plays that everyone notices, but it's the low key subtle things with communication and positioning that sets him apart and makes the Warriors an elite defensive team.

      Hi coach Nick I would like to hear your opinion about Draymond Green as an overrated player. I think that in the NBA today we have a thin (or almost no) margin between a superstar/all star player and a great role player. I consider Green as the best role player in the NBA but superstar-NO. Nowadays people even compare him to Barkley which I think is ridiculous and that he would never be even close to him, I think that he works well in Golden state's enviorement but on any other system he would be an average player. Your oppinion please!

        "Draymond goes straight up"??? He literally jumps over the no charge circle.
        Got here in a "dirty green" loop. I am shocked there is a praising video of this human waste on the internet. Especially from you coach.
