Over his first three seasons in the NBA, Draymond Green earned $2,640,743 million dollars.
He's donating that much, plus more, to his alma mater.
The runner-up for Defensive Player of the Year pledged $3.1 million to Michigan State on Thursday, the largest student-athlete donation in school history.
"Michigan State means everything to me," the Warriors' starting power forward said. "I grew up in Saginaw and was lucky enough to attend Michigan State University where Coach Izzo believed in me and gave me the chance to succeed. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without my Spartan experience and this donation reflects my deep appreciation to the University. This donation isn’t just about me. I want more kids to have the opportunities I had thanks to Michigan State and want to use this to stimulate all Spartans to give back to the best university in the world."
After a breakout 2014-15 campaign, Draymond signed a 5-year, $82 million extension with the Warriors this offseason.
“Draymond is an exemplary Spartan and we thank him for his contributions to ‘Team MSU’ as a student-athlete leader and now as a philanthropist," MSU President Lou Anna K. Simon said. "His gift will help our campus continue to be a vibrant community that attracts extraordinary student and faculty talent.”
With his gift, pending Board of Trustee approval, The Draymond Green Strength and Conditioning Center at the Jack Breslin Student Events Center will be named in his honor. In addition, a portion of Green’s gift will fund an endowment for the program.
Draymond is Michigan State's leading career rebounder (1,096), and is one of three players in MSU history with 1,000 career points (1,517 points) and 1,000 career rebounds.
He ranks fourth in MSU career blocks (117) and second in steals (180).
Draymond's donation surpasses the $3 million given by Magic Johnson in 2012.
