They’re only 14 games into the regular season, but that isn’t preventing the Golden State Warriors from campaigning for an individual honor on behalf of Draymond Green.
“I hope he wins [Defensive Player of the Year],” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said after Monday’s 120-83 win over the Indiana Pacers. “We’re well aware of how great (San Antonio Spurs forward) Kawhi Leonard is. And it’s one of those votes that the last couple years could have gone either way, but I would love to see Draymond rewarded for his efforts.”
