Udonis Haslem clowns Draymond Green for saying he’s best NBA defender ever

1 Min Read

Miami Heat forward Udonis Haslem took a shot at Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green on Instagram after Green claimed that he was the greatest defender in NBA history.

Draymond Green and Udonis Haslem

Green, who was the 2016-17 NBA Defensive Player of the Year, got into a spat on Twitter with former NBA player Tony Allen over the claim as well.

Green is a great defender, and he has been named to an NBA All-Defensive team five times in his career. Moreover, he can guard all five positions on the court.

Still, Haslem clearly thinks that Green is selling himself a little high.

Haslem is in the waning stages of his career, so it is unlikely that he and Green will be matched up with each other in a game this season.

Still, the Heat take on the Warriors on April 1, and it will be interesting to see if Green has any words for Haslem during the matchup.
