As the Golden State Warriors have put together the NBA's best record at 15-2, most are focusing on Stephen Curry having an MVP-caliber season. Not be missed is Draymond Green finding his form once again as well.
Green is back to being a defensive terror and he hopes award voters take notice.
"I want to win. I want to be a Defensive Player of the Year again, and I want to be an All-Star again," said Green. "And that is motivating me because a lot of people had counted me out. Same mistake people made before when I first came into the league...that's fuel to the fire."
For his part, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr agrees that Green looks like he's back.
"I think Draymond Green is the best defender in the world. I think he's had just an unbelievable start to the season," Kerr said. "He's so motivated. He's so engaged every single night."
