Day-Day, my, my.

Michigan State alumnus Draymond Green, whose vocation is professionally playing basketball for the world-champion Golden State Warriors, just donated $3.1 million dollars to his school’s athletic department.

The Board of Trustees must first formally approve this generous gesture from Green — uh, that’ll probably take about seven seconds at the next meeting — and then MSU will accept what’s the largest donation ever by an athlete to MSU’s athletic department.

Green can do this because, fresh off a title with Golden State, he signed an $82 million deal to keep balling with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Co. The gift means Green will have the program’s weight room and fitness center named after him.

“Green’s gift will continue fundraising efforts led by the Spartan Fund for MSU Athletics’ $262 million goal as part of Empower Extraordinary, the campaign for Michigan State,” the school’s release states.
