Draymond Green Credits Losing Weight With Improvement In Play 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Apr 20, 2019 5:51 pm

Draymond Green has lost 23 pounds in the last 6 weeks after getting called out by general manager Bob Meyers.


“Draymond, I’mma tell you something you may not want to hear. If we’re going to win a championship, you’ve got to get in shape," Green recalls Meyers telling him in a March 6th discussion.


Green cut out alcohol and fried foods from his diet.


“I knew I wasn’t in good shape. But I also know if anybody knows how to get in shape and get in shape quick, I know how. I’ve been doing it all my life," said Green.


Green has shot 48.3% from the field and 37.1% from 3 since the All-Star break.


The Clippers have also shot just 36.6% on attempts Green has defended over 3 playoff games.

Dray was slipping. Fried Foods should always be off limits.

Great players don’t get in shape, they stay in shape.

Improved play? He seems to still be averaging 3 points per game every time I watch.

It’s hard for fans who just look at the box score, don’t watch the game itself, and don’t understand the game, to know Green’s impact in a game.

Some fans don't even look at the boxscore... as I pointed out. :lol:

Improved play?

Compared to last year, he's averaging less points, rebounds, assists, and blocks... while shooting a worse FG%, 3PT%, and FT%

Did you read the arctile? His play has improved since getting in shape prior to that and being out of shape he was below average this is a definite difference

Somehow people have an opinion without reading anything or watching anything. The internet, it’s faaaaantastic.
