To play in the NBA, it’s safe to say that you must have some level of confidence in yourself to be able to play the game you love well in front of thousands fans in the arena, not to mention millions watching on the television, laptops, tablets and cell phones.

However, every player’s confidence level is different and in the case of Draymond Green he is not lacking any confidence whatsoever. In an interview with ESPN, he stated that he feels he is “one of the best players in the NBA.”

“I think I’m one of the best players in the NBA,” Green said to ESPN. “Am I going to go out and score 30 every night? Absolutely not. But I didn’t say I was one of the best scorers. I think I’m one of the best players, and I think anybody should believe that. I think if you don’t believe that, you’re failing yourself, and you’re not allowing yourself to be that … But I don’t say that in a sense of, ‘Oh, I’m one of the best. I’m better than Steph, I’m better than KD.’ Like, that isn’t me. When I just look at the game, that’s how I feel.

“But the things that I do are more self-gratifying than anything. I don’t do something to say, ‘Man, I wonder if they saw that screen I just set. I wonder if they saw what I just did to help him get that bucket.’ I don’t do that, but I’ll run down the court feeling amazing about it. That’s just kind of how I am.”
