Mulder shares great Draymond story from Warriors practice originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Everybody who has played with Draymond Green has a story of the first time he yelled at him. Usually, in a good way. Really, it’s a badge of honor. 

Warriors guard Mychal Mulder isn’t any different. It might not have been the first time Green let his voice be heard with Mulder in the way, but this one stands out most to the 27-year-old. 

“I don’t know if it was the first time, but one that stands out is I didn’t shoot the ball,” Mulder said to Grant Liffmann and Kendra Andrews on the Dubs Talk podcast. “I’m pretty sure he went swing, swing — I was in the corner, I pump-faked and that’s a sin right there to Draymond. He basically was barking at me on the way back down the floor. Talking about ‘Don’t get trigger shy’ or whatever he said.

“I think I had missed a shot prior and then I didn’t shoot the second one, and that set him off a little bit.”

And it’s easy to understand why. 

Mulder is one of the Warriors’ best shooters from 3-point range. He nailed 39.7 percent of shots from beyond the arc, and Green wants to make sure the guard doesn’t hesitate when he gets his chance. 

This isn’t seen as a bad thing to Mulder. Not at all. It’s actually exactly what he wants from someone like Green. 

“That kind of speaks into the type of leader he is, ya know what I mean? It wasn’t like he was yelling at me to degrade me. It was totally to uplift me and show he has the utmost confidence in me and it was really helpful. The next time down, I’m pretty sure I let it go.

“It was good. It really speaks to his leadership style. There’s different styles. Some guys are a little more quieter and it’s more about what they say then how they say it, but Draymond, you guys can see it when we’re playing. It’s right out there in the open for everybody to see.

“And it is uplifting, absolutely.”

Mulder is looking to make the Warriors’ roster this season, and being ready to fire when passed to will only help his chances.
