Former Michigan State star Draymond Green is joined on the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated by Warriors teammates Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

The cover story is written by former Sports Illustrated columnist Rick Reilly and it is titled: "This Is a Moment, Everyone: The Warriors' joy ride toward NBA history rolls on and on."

Green played in his first NBA All-Star Game this season, and in the story he said he got the news from his mother.

“I wanted to cry,” Green says about his reaction. “But I didn’t want to be the next Michael Jordan meme on Facebook, so I couldn’t.”
