Draymond Green Meets With FC Barcelona Stars


Draymond Green is touring Europe during the summer, and had the opportunity to visit FC Barcelona’s training ground. The two time NBA champion met with Barcelona stars Neymar, Ivan Rakitic, Gerard Pique, Sergi Roberto and Samuel Umtiti.



Draymond Green and Neymar didn’t meet for the first time, as they are close friends. He said:


“I met Neymar about two or three years ago. I was playing with the Warriors and Leandro Barbosa, who is also from Brazil. He came out to a game and we met him and we’ve been good [friends] ever since. We keep in touch, he’s a really good friend and a great person to be around.”

Having won two NBA championships, Green knows what it takes to win and he sees the same qualities in the FC Barcelona squad. Green said:


“I think they are one of the greatest teams in the world, some of the best guys in the world. So it’s always fun to watch. One thing I notice is that the intensity level in every game that Barcelona are involved in is incredible. It’s always fun to watch.”
