Back in the day, Ben Wallace was the baddest man on the court. The undersized center won four Defensive Player of the Year trophies in a five-season stretch between 2002-06, so he knows a little something about what Draymond Green is up to these days as the defensive enforcer for the two-time champion Golden State Warriors.

With all that said, it was a pretty sweet sight on Saturday when Wallace personally presented Green with the coveted award.

Last season, Green averaged 10.2 points, 7.9 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.4 blocks per game en route to winning his first ever Defensive Player of the Year award.
