Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green responded to comments made by TNT analyst Chris Webber about his style of play. 

Following Tuesday's Game 5 win to eliminate the San Antonio Spurs from the playoffs, Green said his "jewelry fit well" when asked about Webber saying he wouldn't start on some NBA teams:

Webber made the comment at halftime during TNT's broadcast of Golden State's 99-91 Game 5 victory over the Spurs. 

"If he was on other teams and expected to score, he might not be in the starting lineup on some teams," Webber said, via MLive.com's Kyle Austin. "But on this team, he's one of their most valuable players because he keeps the system going, he's unselfish, he locks down on defense, and he'll get you an easy bucket."

Green has never been a prolific scorer in the NBA. He has averaged 9.3 points per game in six seasons, and his single-season career high was 14.0 points per game during the 2015-16 campaign. 

What Green lacks in scoring proficiency, he makes up for in several areas. The three-time All-Star has averaged at least 7.6 rebounds per game in each of the past four seasons, 7.0 assists per game in each of the past three seasons and has finished in the top two of NBA Defensive Player of the Year voting every year since 2015. 

The Warriors have been the NBA's most successful team since the 2014-15 season, with two championships in three straight trips to the NBA Finals.
