Draymond Green as Jim Hopper (David Harbour)
When the team has its back against the wall, who is going to save the day?
Well, when Eleven isn’t there, it’s Jim Hopper, who is played as David Harbour. Hopper, the Sheriff of the Hawkins, has an increasingly important role in the show from season 1 to 3, where he ends up as both the town’s savior and 11’s new father.
Side note: Do you think he’s really gone?
In season 3, Hopper offers to risk his life while trapped in the Hawkins Lab. He also decided it’d be wise to go into the Upside Down without telling anyone. Miraculously getting out, Hopper again put his life on the line when infiltrating the Russian’s base to close the gate.
Over and over, Hopper takes a risk, and it pays off. Well, in a few ways, that relates to three-time All-Star Draymond Green.
Let’s start with the sheer emotion. Green is the locker room leader for Golden State, bringing the intensity every game.
He’s the most involved defensively and always commands the respect of both his teammates and opponents. Green puts his body on the line whenever he can and is the team’s utilityman, making all the small yet incredibly important plays.
Always looking to set his teammates up for success, Green has led the team in assists for the last four seasons. Much like Hopper, Green puts the success of his team first and then personal accolades after.
