Draymond Green can’t shoot and it doesn’t matter

It's easy for teams to take advantage of Draymond Green's limitations as a shooter.

In theory, at least.

Green proved himself to be an above-average 3-point shooter in the 2015-16 season. Since then, he's been on the decline. Over the last six seasons, only twice has he connected on over 30 percent of his 3-point attempts. He's shooting a combined 29.3 percent from 3-point range during that stretch, making him one of the worst long-range shooters in the NBA.

Despite that, the Warriors often pair Green with another non-shooting big man in Kevon Looney. They've also been a significantly better team offensively with him on the court over the years.

How is that even possible? It helps, of course, that Green has spent his entire career playing alongside the two greatest shooters we've ever seen, but the Warriors have figured out how to weaponize his greatest weakness.

Ignore Draymond Green at your own risk

The Warriors are home to two of the best off-ball scorers in the . Between the 2015-16 and 2018-19 seasons, nobody scored more points off of screens than Klay Thompson.

Care to guess who took over the top spot in two of the last three seasons? Stephen Curry.
