Draymond Green: One thing I am certain of is that I can f— up an entire team’s offense. And so, when you look at the impact that I have on the defensive side of the ball, it’s not always going to show up in blocked shots. It’s not always going to show up in steals. But I guarantee you it shows up in your favorite-player-who-I-may-be-playing-against’s mind. It shows up in what they’re able to do, as opposed to what they’re trying to get to (offensively). I think being able to control the game on the defensive side of the ball (is key) when you start talking Defensive Player of the Year. It’s not shot block leader of the year (which is Gobert this season and was Hassan Whiteside — then with Portland — last season). It’s not steals leader of the year (which is Miami’s Jimmy Butler this season and was Philadelphia’s Ben Simmons last season). It says the Defensive Player of the Year. Well, I am of the belief that someone could win Defensive Player of the Year and not average a steal or a block per game. That does not mean that guy’s not having an incredible defensive year.
