Draymond Green wasn’t at the All-Star Game this year, so instead he brought the All-Star Game back to the Golden State Warriors.
The three-time All-Star wasn’t selected to this season’s showcase, but watched the game while on vacation. So he got to see the ridiculous alley-oop pass that his teammate Steph Curry threw to Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks.
Green, apparently wanting to get in on the All-Star action that his teammates Curry, Kevin Durant, and Klay Thompson got to experience, attempted to recreate the play back at Warriors practice when the team returned from the break. The results were a little less than flattering.

Green surely won’t be trying that in a game anytime soon, but still, the thought of him attempting it at practice is pretty funny.
It was the first time since 2015 that Green got to take a leisurely break in February, so here’s hoping he comes out of the gate strong for the final stretch of the season.
The Warriors return from the All-Star break on Thursday, when they host the Sacramento Kings at 7:30 p.m. PT.
