“GSW? You need green to win” JJ Reddick’s advice
Reddick emphasized Green’s presence.
JJ Reddick, who made a name for himself as a 3-point shooter in the NBA and now works for ‘ESPN’, recently appeared on ‘First Take’. Reddick said at this meeting that Draymond Green must remain in order for the Golden State Warriors to win next season.
Golden State entered the 2022-2023 season as the defending champion. The goal is, of course, to win back-to-back. However, Golden State’s move ended in the second round of the Western Conference playoffs.
Sixth-seeded Golden State completed a thrilling upset by winning the series 4-3 against the third-seeded Sacramento Kings in the first round. In the second round, they faced the 7th seed LA Lakers.
A situation where Golden State had home-court advantage. However, Golden State could not stand the Lakers’ fury and fell to its knees with a 2-4 record in the series.메이저놀이터
Due to the lower-than-expected performance, voices appeared saying that Golden State should proceed with the reorganization of the team. As a result, Green’s move also began to draw attention.
Green, along with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, is a player who has made a significant contribution to building the Golden State dynasty. He has been reborn as the core of Golden State basketball with his unique defense and passing sense.
However, his hot-tempered personality was a problem. Green had demoralized the squad before his last season by punching teammate Jordan Poole in the face.
Reddick insisted that Golden State hold on to the double-edged sword.
“Draymond Green is really important on both sides of the offense and defense, especially on defense,” Reddick said. He showed great defensive skills.”
“He’s the heart of the defense. It’s Green’s great defense that makes Golden State a championship contender,” he added. “There’s no substitute for Green. Golden State won’t win without him.”
Last season, Green averaged 8.5 points, 7.2 rebounds and 6.8 assists with a field goal success rate of 52.7%. He also made the All-NBA Defensive Second Team. However, he is like a bomb who doesn’t know what to do at any moment.
It remains to be seen what choices Green, with player options, will make.
