Draymond Green Says He Is More Impressed By Pelicans Than Rockets

Warriors forward Draymond Green says he is more impressed by what Anthony Davis doing for the Pelicans than what James Harden is doing for the Rockets. Green feels that with Boogie out, AD has put the Pelicans on his back via historical performances and because of that he could steal the MVP award down the stretch here.

“Houston has had a good one but I’m most impressed with New Orleans,” Draymond Green told reporters after shootaround on Thursday. “With some of the games they’ve won; with some of the numbers that AD (Anthony Davis) has put up has been incredible.

“And then doing that without DeMarcus. I think there was kind of a consensus around the world that once DeMarcus (Cousins) went out, that they’d struggle. Yet, AD has put them boys on his back and they’re on a 10-game wining streak … that’s impressive.”

Harden finished (as the MVP) runner-up in 2015 and 2017.

“Both of those years, he lost to historic seasons — Steph (Curry) was just off the charts, and then (Russell Westbrook) had 50 triple-doubles last year,” Draymond told reporters. “You knew it wouldn’t be long before he actually does pull through and win one. And then I know if you’re him, you’re sitting there like, ‘Man, now here comes AD.’ … he’s put himself in the best position he possibly can that’s for sure.”
