Fizdale even compared Thomas to All-Star Draymond Green.
"He's a Swiss Army knife-type of player that can guard multiple positions and you can run offense through him," the coach said on WFAN. "I think he can push the ball off the break a lot like Draymond Green plays. Obviously the thing I'm going to demand from Lance is to play defense like Draymond. And be a guy that's pushing to be a First Team All-Defender."
Um.... WHAT?! Lance is NOTHING like Draymond. He doesn't rebound like Draymond, he doesn't have a good pickup dribble like Draymond, he's not intimidating on defense like Draymond, he's not a great passer like Draymond. HE'S NOTHING LIKE DRAYMOND!
