Warriors star Draymond Green reveals why it’s a ‘surreal feeling’ to have your own bobblehead night
Pretty much every NBA star has had their own bobblehead night at some point. Green, the heart and soul of the Warriors, spoke to Nick Friedell of ESPN about the emotions of it all.
“It’s a surreal feeling,” Draymond Green said. “It’s almost like this night is dedicated to you. You see fans pouring in where the first 10,000 fans get this bobblehead. … They’re actually piling in this early.
“It’s one of those ‘Mama, I made it’ moments.”
It has been a terrible season for the Warriors, who have the worst record in the NBA after five straight Finals appearances. These fun bobblehead nights are a great way for fans and players to engage in commonality in what has been a down season for the Dubs.
Green has appeared in 43 games this season for the Warriors, who were going to miss the playoffs this 2019-20 for the first time under head coach Steve Kerr. The former Defensive Player of the Year is averaging 8.0 points, 6.2 rebounds and 6.2 assists while shooting 38.9 percent from the field, 27.9 percent from beyond the arc and 75.9 percent from the free-throw line.
If the 2019-20 season starts up again, the Warriors will be 15-50. Green, who signed an extension with the Dubs before the season started, was looking forward to playing with Stephen Curry and Andrew Wiggins to close out the season.
We’ll see if he gets that chance or not.
