Draymond Green is the greatest defender in NBA history, according to Klay Thompson.

Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors is the team’s defensive anchor. More than that, Klay Thompson believes he is the best defender in the history of the game. It’s no secret that Stephen Curry’s Golden State Warriors are his team. He’s not just one of the finest scorers of all time, but he’s also the best shooter in NBA history. But no one, including him, can win by themselves.

Curry has had some fantastic teammates over his career. He would not have won three NBA championships if Klay Thompson had not been by his side. But Draymond Green’s playmaking and aggressive defense have always been crucial to him.

Draymond Green, according to Klay Thompson, is the best defender ever.

“Best defender I’ve ever seen,” Klay wrote on Instagram. “He makes all our jobs sooooooo much easier. And his game LEVELS UP when it’s PLAYOFF time aka winning time,” the shooting guard added.

Green also believes he is the greatest of all time.

Green, unsurprisingly, seemed to concur with Thompson’s views. He recently revealed why he is the best defender of all time and how he compares to those who have come before him:

“I think I’m the best defender to ever play this game. One-hundred percent. That’s my opinion,” Green said, per NBC Sports. “But I also think I view the game a lot differently than most people view the game. I think I just see it from a different perspective. I think when you look at the things that make a great defender: reaction time, toughness, being able to see the picture long before it develops, and most importantly, in order to finish a defensive possession, you’ve got to rebound. And I think I rebound well. And so when I look at all the facets that make up the defensive side of the ball, I think I’m great in every facet. So I think I’m the best defender to ever play in the NBA. I’ll stand by that. I’ll put myself up against anyone.”

While it may be a stretch, no one can disagree that Green is, at the very least, one of the most adaptable goaltenders in league history.
