"You did not have a simple task, defending LebBron James," Rivlin, who told Green that he had seen his games late in the night Israel time, added. "You're an amazing team, and it was a true pleasure to watch you play. I hope this will only be the first of many visits."

Green, 28, who was drafted to Golden State in 2012, played on the team's 2015, 2017, and 2018 championship teams. It was the player's first trip to Israel.

Omri Caspi, Green's former Warriors teammate, is the only Israeli to play in the NBA.
