Draymond Green gets ready for NBA draft

Former Michigan State basketball star Draymond Green will host a private NBA Draft Viewing Party tonight at 7 at the Dow Event Center.

Green, recently named Big Ten National Male Athlete of the Year, will be joined by family and close friends during the event to be held in his hometown of Saginaw.

"My athletic career is a culmination of many years of hard work and dedication," says Draymond Green. "I have always dreamed of this day. Everything that I have hoped and dreamed for is now moments away," says Green. "Many have said that I would never make it this far, but I've always held on to what my grandmother often told me, that all things are possible to those that believe." "Today I believe," says Green.

As a MSU senior, Green led the Spartans in scoring (16.2 ppg), rebounding (10.6 rpg), steals (54), and 3-point field goals (52). He attended Saginaw High School where he was part of two back-to-back State Championship basketball teams in 2007 and 2008.
