Steve Kerr expects to see the best version of Draymond Green next year
An early season end and an NBA suspension could benefit Golden State Warriors striker Draymond Green, said head coach Steve Kerr. According to him, the 30-year-old had the opportunity to rest, which was urgently needed.
Green had many long seasons when he played in five consecutive NBA finals since 2014-15. The two seasons before him and the Dubs also made it into the playoffs, but were eliminated.
Kerr believes we will see the best version of Green both mentally and physically next season after taking a long break from basketball. Golden State played its last game of the season on March 10th. It will take approximately 9 months for them to play again, as the 2020-21 season is not expected to start until December.
“He did it and he gets a much needed break,” continued Kerr. “And I think we will see the best version of Draymond next year whenever the next season starts. I feel really good where he will be mentally and physically.”
This season Green played 43 NBA games with an average of 8 points, 6.2 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game for the Warriors, who were the worst team in the league.
