Love him or hate him, there is no denying that he is turning into one of the NBA's top players, and it doesn't hurt that he's a huge contributing factor on a championship team. Draymond decided to reveal one of his secrets on how he got better and what he studies that helps him continue to improve.
Recently he had a discussion with Sports Illustrated and opened up, discussing where he turns to study the game of basketball:
In the NBA there's always a guy who is only around because he can jump. He doesn't have a clue about the fundamentals. I learn more from the WNBA. They know how to dribble, how to pivot, how to use the shot fake.
Those things are especially important to a player like Green who was regarded as an NBA tweener; on many nights he has to match up with players bigger than himself. Fundamental play is his advantage as he looks to find ways to take the spirit out of his opponent, and studying women's basketball helps him see the fundamental weaknesses in some of his NBA counterparts.
Something is working for him, because not only has he grown to help his team win a championship, but he also helped this season in leading them to a 73-9 record, the most victories of any team in the history of the NBA.
