In the 2015 NBA Finals, the Warriors had to recover from a 2-1 deficit and they did exactly that, winning the next three games to win their first title since 1975, per SI.

Green played an important role for the team throughout the season. He provided balance to the team with the two best shooters of all time, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

That season probably went a long way in cementing Green as a Warriors legend and a vital player in their dynasty.

Green on 2015's NBA title

Although the Warriors were stunned by James and the Cavaliers in 2016, they went on to win three more titles in 2017, 2018 and 2022.

However, Green said winning the first one still remains his favorite basketball moment, per New York Times.

"2015. Winning our first championship in Cleveland. Because it was a feeling I had never felt before, and it’s a feeling I’ve never felt again. I don’t know how to describe it."

Green added that the 2017, 2018 and 2022 titles were never the same when compared to the 2015 championship victory.

"I did win again, but I haven’t experienced that feeling. I never take winning for granted, but it was never the same as that."

In his 11-year NBA career, Green is a four-time All-Star and a four-time NBA All-Defensive First Team selection. He also won the 2017 Defensive Player of the Year award.

Green names best-ever NBA face

Sports Brief earlier reported on Green declaring LeBron James the best-ever face of the NBA, because he is playing at an 'insane' level.

The two basketballers are close friends and business partners, as well as both sharing an agent.

James is expected to pass Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on NBA's all-time scoring list next month, if he continues with his current scoring run.
