Number 27 – Draymond Green, SF, Sr., Michigan State

If you play in a fantasy college basketball league, you are probably eye-balling Green as the number one spot. As David Fox of Rivals.com puts it, Green is the ultimate stat-stuffer. You can’t even debate it. Green gets so much done.

The last time you saw him, he messed around and got a triple double against UCLA in the NCAA tournament. Green is the ultimate mismatch. And he’ll let you know it, too. Green is one of the premiere trash talkers in the game. Maybe that’s why I like him as much as I do.

Green does everything. EVERYTHING. He can win the battle on the blocks. He can post up the smaller defenders. He was the best passer on the Spartan roster last year. Despite his odd basketball frame, Green is more athletic and quicker than you realize. No one has more fun than he does, too.
I’ve argued that Green will go down as one of the most loved Spartans in school history, putting him in the same rare air as Magic and Mateen. That’s a high honor. Now if only Green can get the Spartans back to the top after a rocky season last year.

2010-2011 STATS: 12.6 ppg, 8.6 rpg, 4.1 apg, 2.3 TO, 1.8 spg, 1.1 bpg, 42.6% FG, 36.6% 3PT
