NBA ROLE: 3&D

 

His dancing shoes long retired, Danny Green remains a valued role player in the NBA; popularized the role of ‘3&D guy’ during San Antonio’s back-to-back title appearances in 2013 & 2014 – a role for three-point guys & defense guys merged (in a metaphorical sense) w/ each triple & stop carried out* by the ‘Green Ranger’; reliable from long range: lights out shooter when he’s feeling it, though prone to bad/rushed looks at times; suffers through shooting slumps during every season for some odd reason but once the playoffs hit, Green is usually up to his old tricks; opened up his offense by adding a runner a few years ago – not a natural creator but Green can put the ball down if necessary; D-League/G League success story: Green's been a staple in the league for 10 years; expanded trophy case w/ Raps** in 2019; signed w/ Lakers – adds tremendous value/championship experience to LAL’s starting 5

 

*Hit the most threes (27) in a Finals series (2013) while defending superstars Dwyane Wade and LeBron James

**starting SG on franchise’s 1st-ever title team
