Draymond Green's block on LeBron James has been turned into an emoji collage (PHOTO)

Challenging LeBron James at the rim is never a good idea. Many (big) men have tried and almost all have failed. It's a high-risk, high-reward proposition.  Unless, of course, you're Draymond Green, who's no taller than 6-foot-7 in shoes and isn't exactly the most athletic player. One of the iconic moments of the 2015 NBA Finals was when James went up for a left-handed layup against...
