One might get the impression from Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green that he has only contempt for his opponents in the 2022 NBA Finals, but the Dubs big man has made it known more than once that he has quite a bit of respect for Boston Celtics star forward and fellow Team USA member Jayson Tatum.

Asked about how his former Olympic teammate has been doing in the Finals to date, the Michigan State product shared his thoughts on the Celtics star’s play against Golden State to date. “It’s tough,” he explained. “You’re experiencing something for the first time.”

“I think he’s handled it well,” added Green. “He’s maybe not shot the ball as well as he’d like or everyone else would like, but overall I think he’s been playing well, and that’s why it’s a 2-2 series.”

Whether the St. Louis native finds his shot or not in the Finals may very well end up deciding what has been an electric series so far given, as the Warriors forward noted, things are knotted up at two games each.

We’ll see how things play out soon enough, with Game 5 set to play out on Monday night.
