The NBA Finals tip Thursday night in Oakland, California.

If you haven't been paying attention, it's the Cleveland Cavaliers vs. the Golden State Warriors in what should be a memorable series.

Superstars LeBron James and Stephen Curry are the biggest names in the matchup, but it's a former Michigan State star who could be the wild card.

Draymond Green, the 2012 Big Ten Player of the Year and a member of the 2014-15 NBA All-Defensive First Team, has developed into one of the game's premier all-around players.

In Golden State's 12-3 postseason run to the Finals, Green is averaging a double-double (14 points, 10.8 rebounds), to go along with 5.3 assists, 1.2 blocks and 1.7 steals per game.

He does it all, and, most importantly, he does it while often drawing the opposition's best player.

Best of luck, Draymond!
