At 6-foot-6, 230 pounds, Draymond Green is an undersized power forward who patrols the interior like a center, kicks out to open shooters like a point guard, defends all five positions like a versatile wing and barks directives like a head coach.
It’s understandable, then, why people often struggle to find a fair comparison for Green. But when asked this week about Celtics guard Marcus Smart, Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was quick to draw parallels between Smart and Green, saying that Smart is “the guard version of Draymond. He’s reading angles. … If he’s switching onto a five-man, he’s so strong that he can hold them off. He’s quick enough to chase point guards around. Big enough to guard wings.”
