Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green has been in the gym working hard over the past few months in order to improve his three-point jump shot.
Green’s longtime personal trainer Travis Walton has been posting updates on Green’s workouts throughout the summer and fall.

Although Green is known for having an all-around game, he’s never excelled as a three-point shooter.
Going into his ninth NBA season, it’s clear that Green needs to improve his shooting percentage from beyond the arc.
Green shot just 28% from three last season, 29% the season before that, and 30% the year before that.
Since 2016, Green’s three-point percentage has decreased year-over-year.
The Warriors are going to have a real shot at winning an NBA championship so long as Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are able to stay healthy.
Green’s inaccuracy from outside became a real detriment for the Warriors during their last two deep playoff runs.
Without Kevin Durant, the Warriors have a much smaller margin for error and will need Green to shoot closer to 40% than 30% from three.
