These last couple of days were eventful ones for the Michigan State athletic department. While football team’s win over Oregon in a matchup of Top 10 teams Saturday night received a lot of attention, so did the donation made by former Michigan State basketball player Draymond Green.
Green, fresh off of a world championship with the Golden State Warriors (and a new contract, too), returned to East Lansing with the Larry O’Brien Trophy in tow. He also made a $3.1 million donation to the basketball program, the largest made by a former Michigan State athlete in the history of the program.
Saturday night Michigan State said thanks to Green for his contributions, giving him a Spartan helmet on the field during the football game.
