Draymond Green's trainer Travis Walton on 3PT shot critics and how Dray changed the game.
He's also a big-time believer in Andrew Wiggins.
Poor Man’s Commish invited Draymond Green’s trainer, Travis Walton, for an electric draft night conversation. Walton is a former Michigan State hooper who as a senior played with a rookie Green. Walton continues the Spartan way in his role working closely with Green to maximize the three-time All-Star and former Defensive Player of the Year.
In our interview, he went into depth on several topics: Green’s experience last year without the Splash Bros, the noisy critiques of Green’s shooting, and how Green’s playmaking/defense combo changed the game.
He also mentioned why Green is a pain in the you-know-what when it comes to playing dominoes.
