Basketball HOF has a pretty low standard to get in so I don't know how he doesn't make it, even if he never played another game

I don't see why not especially if he wins DPOY this year.
Let's say he wins DPOY this year AND next year, along with a 3rd ring. There is no way you could argue that he shouldn't be.

Well, let me ask this, if Chris Bosh is getting in then why shouldn't Draymond?

Undoubtedly. Especially if he wins another 2-3 titles.

Hell no he doesn't deserve to make it! Hall of fame is for the best of the best players, not some star role player.

If this Donkey-looking nig ga makes it, it automatically diminishes the value of being a Hall of Famer tbh...

This is extremely offensive and unacceptable, No one need respond to this post.

I'm not a Warriors fan,but Draymond definitely deserves to be in the hall. He has never been the best player on the Dubs but he has always been the most important. Without his ability to spread the floor and masterfully pick apart defenses in 4 on 3 situations on the pick and roll, or his ability to switch on to smalls and guard bigs, the Warriors simply aren't the Warriors. They'd never have had the appeal of free agency, like they did with KD.

He made all that happen, and did it for one of the best teams of all time. He def. deserves to be in the hall.

I love how whenever individual accolades and praise is doled out to players who were on the Dubs before KD and not named Curry, they are torn down as role players and just products of the system. But when those same critics complain about KD joining us, they stress what an amazing team of all stars he just joined and how unfair that was.

To me, HOFers should transcend time & space - they should be a player who would be at least good, if not great, in any era, on any team.

Green, for me, is too much a product of this era and this team. I'm not convinced he could replicate what he does, and the accolades his gets from fans, on all other teams. And I know he wouldn't be transplantable universally across eras - some he would excel in, and others he would need the right fit.

Sanders Sanders and Dennis Rodman are in the Hall of Fame. Satch Sanders was a good defensive player who won a lot of championships with Bill Russell.

Shawn Kemp, Terry Cummings, Horrace Grant, Bobby Jones, Buck Williams, Paul Silas, and Robert Horry are not in Hall of fame.

How long do you have to wait to get in the Hall of fame? Ben Wallace is a 4 time defensive player of the year who is not in the Hall of Fame. Sidney Moncreif is a 2 time Defensive player of the year and a good scorer and he is not in the hall of fame. Mark Eaton is a 2 time defensive player of the year who is not in the Hall of Fame.


Michael Cooper was defensive player of the year and won 5 championships and is not in the Hall of fame.
Dennis Johnson is in the Hall of Fame.

Draymond and the Warriors need a few more good years to get Draymond into the Hall of Fame.

If Green becomes a HOFer, then everyone can become one. HOF has lost a lot of credit recently, if they induct Green, then gg wp to their credibility.

Before they added KD, imagine if Curry got injured last year. Would they even reach the second round of the playoffs?


He is without question one of the leaders on the team, I'm not sure how you can say otherwise?


There's a big difference between "the leader" and "one of the leaders"...calling him "the leader" means he is more of a leader than Curry, which he isn't.

So no one ever said he wasn't "one of the leaders"...see that?



Green is the leader of the warriors, not curry.
He is the guy that makes the talks, he is the man who can blast KD when he calls for the ball instead of making a screen, he is the guy that all journalists are trying to find every time they want a statement regarding an issue n the locker room or sth else. Not curry.
Curry might be the better player and yes if he gets injured or something like that the blow will be severe.
That makes him a better player. Not a better leader.

Green has only been an NBA starter for 3 seasons now. Let's save the HOF discussion when he actually had a career under his belt.

Your argument doesn't even make sense. Dennis Rodman is in the HOF. Dikembe Mutombo. Ben Wallace might still get in. It's not like they haven't rewarded defensive minded players before and Green has a better all-around game then those 3.

I'm not sure if you're a wrestling fan but Vince McMahon of the WWE literally hand chooses who he wants and does not want, the media, reporters don't have a say and wrestling is sports entertainment, their Hall-of-Fame is a joke. There have been wrestlers who have won titles but if Vince holds a grudge against another wrestler he won't let them in.

All sports hold grudges to hof worthy players. The basketball HOF is easily the worst. A person can make it just by being affiliated with basketball and not even played the sport at any high level.

For thread purposes the basketball hof standards are very low. green will make and should based on the low standards it has.

To be fair, Ben Wallace has only been eligible for one year.

To be fairer yet, Ben Wallace should've been a first ballot Hall of Famer.
At the end of the day, it's not about wins and losses. Teamwork, fair play, and good sportsmanship make champions of us all.

I don't think so. Unless they win a few more rings or he gets his own team.
