Arguably the heart and soul of the Golden State Warriors, power forward Draymond Green appears to have only two tattoos on his body.
The three-time All-Star and three-time NBA champion has tattoos on both arms.
Green and his childhood friend, former NFL player Jonas Gray, have matching tattoos reading “Eazy” in the same font.
Green, Gray and their group of friends — which also includes former Boston Celtics power forward Jared Sullinger — have dubbed themselves Team Eazy. They all have matching Eazy tattoos. It’s a mantra Gray started years ago that just stuck.
“Let’s say for instance, they text me right now and be like, ‘Are you gonna have a big game this week?’” Gray said back in 2014. “I’ll be like, ‘Easy. I don’t have a choice.’”
The Warriors drafted Green out of Michigan State back in 2012 as the 35th overall pick. Draymond has career averages of 9.0 points, 6.9 rebounds and 5.0 assists with the Warriors. Along with being a three-time All-Star and three-time champion, Green won the 2017 Defensive Player of the Year Award.
Whenever the 2020-21 season starts, Green is scheduled to make $22,246,956. The four-year, $100 million extension he signed with the Warriors in 2019 will kick in and pay the All-Star swingman $24,026,712 in 2021-22, $25,806,469 in 2022-23 and $27,586,225 in 2023-24. Not bad for a guy who was a second-round pick.
It’s unknown if Green plans to get more tattoos in the future. What is certain is that the versatile forward is eager to win more championships with the Warriors, especially since the Dubs had the worst record in the NBA this season. Furthermore, most pundits believe the dynasty is over following the departure of two-time Finals MVP Kevin Durant. KD joined the Brooklyn Nets in the summer of 2019 after three successful years with the Warriors.
Odds are the Warriors should at least be playoff contenders in 2020-21 with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Green and Andrew Wiggins leading the charge as a foursome. The Dubs will also have a top pick in the 2020 draft. The franchise has been linked to Georgia’s Anthony Edwards, but there’s always the possibility of Warriors general manager Bob Myers trading the pick for a proven star.
