Ahead of the Utah Jazz game against the 27-7 Golden State Warriors, head coach Quin Snyder shared an interesting take about who he feels should be in the MVP conversation. He explained he meant no disrespect to Stephen Curry. But Snyder believes Draymond Green should also get mentioned.

“I think If you want to put someone in the MVP conversation, he’s someone to me… Maybe the numbers don’t match up to some of the numbers that some other guys put up…He just does it his way,” Snyder told ClutchPoints.

Green is having another excellent season, and it’s obvious he’s one of the main reasons they have the best record in the NBA. He’s only averaging 8.4 points, 7.9 rebounds 7.5 assists, but his value doesn’t get seen on the stat sheet. Green gives the Warriors much more than numbers.

Green is one of the best leaders in the NBA. We’ve all seen him play and see how much he talks on the court. He isn’t just yelling at officials for making calls that he believes are bad. Green is motivating his teammates and even sometimes his coaches. Also, accountability is enormous with Green, and he will do whatever it takes for the Dubs to win. He expects the same from his crew. Green for MVP might not be likely, but this is an example of how respected he is in the NBA.
