A few weeks ago, Draymond Green claimed that he can name all 34 players taken before him in the 2012 NBA draft. Feeling slighted that he wasn't selected until early in the second round, Green decided to use this list as a motivating tool as he improved his game at the professional level.
It has worked so far. Four years in, and Green has been to an All-Star game while making the NBA's All-Defensive First Team in each of the last two seasons. Oh yeah, he's also on the verge of winning his second consecutive title.
Now, we have proof that Green really can name them off. He evens remembers the details of a trade that went down late in the first round that year.
