Draymond Green is the guy one can run the point on offense and then defend a center in the post one possession later.

He’s an all-but incomparable player as Bob Myers, the Warriors prez of basketball ops/GM, knows when. Myers spoke to those talents while joining the ESPN 2 broadcast of the 87-81 summer league loss to the Rockets on Sunday.

“Sometimes we forget (that) the only thing that matters is winning, right? So, what did he do in college? He won.”

“The guys got triple doubles in college, too. So, how many guys in college are even getting triple doubles — and certainly at his position?”

The summer league in Las Vegas is where execs like Myers hope to uncover gems like Green. Well, that's gonna be tough.

“He had something different," Myers continued. "Now, all you hear people talk about is, ‘Who is the next Draymond Green?’ Everyone’s looking for him. I honestly don’t know if there’s anybody (like him). There’s not even a poor man’s (Draymond).”

“If you think around the league, who does what he does? I don’t know if anybody does what he does  — or will. And everybody’s looking for that guy.”
