Ball Handling: Draymond has a nice handle for a forward and can create his own shot off the dribble. Has a classic inside-out game, with the ability to post up with his back to the basket or face up and score from the perimeter. Shows off a nice back to basket game and can get good position on the block using his body to fight and establish position. With the ball in the post, he wants to drive into his man to try using a strong power dribble and attempt to draw the foul, which he does well. Doesn't have many countermoves or patience in terms of throwing fakes or stringing moves together, but has a nice jump hook and fade away out of it. From the perimeter he's a straight-line driver who struggles to change direction and pace due to the constraints of his physical build and favors his right, but can build up some momentum and accelerate for decent quicks to the basket. Uses his body well to shield the ball and keep it away from the defense, but doesn't have many moves off the dribble outside of an operational crossover and step back. Good finisher at the basket on drives who can handle contact and finish through it, even after being fouled. Nothing fancy off the dribble but can handle it and get done what he needs in terms of creating for himself and others.
