Super Bowl champion linebacker and ex-Oakland Raider LaMarr Woodley had one of the best seats in the house for Game 6 as he witnessed his friend Draymond Green win an NBA Championship with the Golden State Warriors.
Woodley confirmed that he was there at the championship game, roughly 14 rows up with his family, and even rode down to arena with Green's grandmother.
"To witness him get that championship after what everybody's being saying about him coming into the league -- he's too short, wouldn't have a position for him -- he proved everyone wrong by helping his team win a championship.
"And also having a triple-double during the game," Woodley told the Michigan Live Media Group.
Woodley and Green, two championship winners, both hail from Saginaw, Mich.
Both were even second-round draft selections in their respective sports; Woodley out of Michigan, and Green out of Michigan State.
In a collaborative effort, the two even recently announced the formation of an AAU basketball program in their home state.
Woodley was proud of Green's recent feat, but even more impressed with the type of player he's become and the imprint he's left on the Warriors.
"He can a little bit of everything because he has the attitude and heart to do it," Woodley elaborated.
"They criticize him a little bit for being this guy who mouths off, tough guy, this and that. But one thing I can say is it's good to have that guy on the basketball court. Because now his teammates follow that same attitude he has. But he's not taking that attitude on the court and taking it off the court. You haven't heard anything negative about Draymond getting in trouble or doing anything off the court. All I can say is he's doing everything right."
