Andre Iguodala doesn't want Draymond Green to quit his day jobAndre Iguodala doesn't want Draymond Green to quit his day job
Warriors forward Draymond Green is a great all-around basketball player. He just isn't good at any other sports, according to his teammate Andre Iguodala.
Green may have all of the skills to succeed in football – he can run, he can catch, he has size, it's just that he can't throw a football or do much else on the field. He also can't throw a baseball, and he's a horrible golfer.
Iguodala's words, not ours.
"He's up there with the smartest basketball players and the game comes so easy to him so you would think he's athletic," Iguodala said while helping out with TNT's coverage of the PGA Championship on Saturday afternoon (via TheScore.com). "But like if you watch him throw a football it's like, he played tight end but he can't throw a football. And he can't hit a baseball, he whacks at a baseball like ... any other sport, it just doesn't transfer for him."
Good thing Green's skill set is more than enough to make him millions upon millions of dollars playing basketball. He averaged 10.2 points, 7.9 rebounds and 7.0 assists for the Warriors this past season, helping the team to its second NBA title in three years, so it doesn't matter if he can't hit a 9 iron. He's pretty set for life.
Just don't expect him to pull a Michael Jordan and attempt a second career with the Lancaster Jethawks because the man is not a multi-sport athlete.
