Draymond Green discusses being inducted into MSU Athletics Hall of Fame
Draymond Green has won 4 NBA championships with the Golden State Warriors. Before that, though, he was a star at Michigan State under Tom Izzo, ending the 2011-12 season as the B1G Player of the Year and as a consensus All-American, eventually having his number retired by the program.
On Friday, Green learned that he had been inducted into the university’s Athletics Hall of Fame, one of 9 inductees enshrined into the 2022 class.
Draymond Green on being inducted in the MSU Athletics Hall of Fame: “To the core of who you are, it always comes back to here. To being a Spartan.”

Green was taken in the 2nd round by the Warriors in 2012 and is set to embark on his 11th season with the team. Aside from his 4 league championships, he’s been named an NBA All-Star 4 times and was the NBA Defensive Player of the Year in 2017.
That wouldn’t have been possible, though, without the successful career he put together in East Lansing. We’ll see if Green can make it 5 titles with the 2022-23 NBA season set to begin in October.
