Draymond Green Height

Standing at 6 feet 6 inches, Draymond Green is not a very big guy for the Warriors’ team. Especially while playing against some of the massive centers who easily crossed the 6’9” mark. But his physical presence on the court is immediately apparent. Green possesses a solid build that allows him to hold his ground against taller opponents.

In addition to it, Green's strong frame and broad shoulders give him an advantage when it comes to battling for rebounds and establishing position in the paint. His ability to use his body effectively to create space and gain leverage over opponents has been crucial to his success.

Also, Green's strength is evident in his ability to absorb contact and finish at the rim. He is known for his strong drives to the basket, where he uses his powerful upper body to withstand challenges from defenders. He is a great passer of the ball, which is his huge deception for the opposition.

Defensively, his physical strength and game IQ enable him to guard multiple positions effectively. He was often seen successfully taking on bigger opponents in the paint. When we combine Green's size and strength with his agility and quickness, we will understand the actual reason behind his success as a defender. Draymond won the 2017 defensive player of the Year award behind his knowledge, positioning and the just mentioned physical attributes.

Draymond’s vision, awareness, endurance and footwork make him a unique player. These are some of the attributes that are hard to be taught, but very crucial to be an impactful player.


Draymond Green’s Impact on the Golden State Warriors Team

Golden State Warriors are certainly enjoying the “golden period” of their franchise history. The San Francisco-based team had won 3 Championships in 65 years and later went on to win 4 more in just 8 years. A lot of credit goes to their players and playing style.

With sharpshooters like Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, the Warriors had other dependable players like Harrison Barnes and Shaun Livingston. But a major impactful player is Draymond Green. He is not a great scorer, but space maker and playmaker which benefitted the “Splash Brothers”. His vision, passing and defensive hold helped the Warriors to gain an upper hand in many encounters.

Apart from his playing attributes, Draymond Green is seen as the vocal leader of the group. Getting the best out of young players and also disturbing the opponent's top players certainly aid the Warriors’ cause. He brought fans into the game whenever needed and even played dirty when the team was in trouble.

All these actions are easier said than done, and Draymond Green is doing it on a regular basis. His physical attributes have played a vital role in his success as a professional basketball player. His combination of size, strength, agility, leaping ability, and endurance has made him a force to be reckoned with on both ends of the court.
