NBA star surprises super fan

PALS: The NBA star with Patrick

NBA STAR Draymond Green treated London-born superfan Patrick Morrison to a once-in-a-lifetime trip to San Francisco to watch his favourite team, the Golden State Warriors, take on the New Orleans Pelicans. Patrick originally met Draymond when the defensive player of the year surprised his young fan whilst he was visiting London.

14-year-old Patrick from Hackney, was led to believe that he was being interviewed as a BT Sport viewer, spoke of his love for the game of basketball and the positive impact it has had on his life, completely unaware that he was only seconds away from meeting the Golden State Warriors power forward. Green subsequently invited Patrick out to San Francisco so that he could watch his favourite team play.

Patrick couldn’t wait to get to grips with his first live NBA game, saying: “I’m extremely excited. My first NBA game. I can’t wait to see Draymond and the guys do what they do. When I’m in London, watching the NBA games you’re very tired.

"You can see the atmosphere, but you can’t feel it and tonight I’m going to feel that atmosphere. I’m taking it all in, second by second and I’m just enjoying the whole thing.”

ON COURT: The duo meet on court

Patrick witnessed the Warriors earn a hard-fought victory against a strong New Orleans Pelicans team.

After the game, Patrick met up with Draymond to discuss the game and even bumped into two-time MVP Steph Curry. After meeting the Warriors star point guard, Patrick said: “Meeting Steph Curry was absolutely amazing. Two-time NBA champion and two-time MVP award winner. He is such a cool dude.”
