It was a coming out party of sort for San Antonio Spurs' Danny Green during the 2013 NBA Finals. He was mentioned as a possible NBA Finals MVP after he displayed a deft shooting stroke from the three-point line.
Green put his name on the NBA record when he broke Ray Allen's Finals record, when he connected on a whopping 7-9 from behind the arch in Game 3, and made 5-5 from deep in Game 2.
With that, he went from obscurity to now a recognized name in the NBA so needless to say, Green's life has changed.
“My life has changed a lot after the Finals,” Green said. “I got national exposure. I’ve had a chance to travel the world and meet fans because I played in the finals.”
After a solid performance in the Finals, the question now is whether he can sustain a high-level of play throughout next season and more importantly, a high-level of consistent play in the postseason.
Heading into next season, he will be sought to be a bigger option and contributor for San Antonio. He proved he can be a solid contributor for the Spurs in the postseason and will have to find another gear if he wants to go from recognizable player to All-Star.
"After a solid performance in the Finals," there is No question he now has the Confidence that not only any player needs to take their Game to the next level, but that any one us as well need in our respectful field of work! it's The Nature of the Game,of Life!
@russman38 no he has plenty of room to improve. he'd get some good number boosts if he learned to hit layups, and he has been working an in between game. he couldn't do much better behind the arc, but there are plenty of other aspects he can work on to make him a better, more complete player.
Green has come a long way since losing the OKC in the 2012 WCF. If he can be more consistent and work on the dribble, he'll be a much dangerous player on both ends of the court
he needs to be in that freaking gym working on his handles and mid range game and being a better finisher at the rim so he cant get taken out of a series so easily, he needs to be doing that instead of traveling all over the world.
Winning the nba finals means consistency, NOT 1, 2 or 3 games but 7 when necessary. True, Green have shown improvement but, he MUST be a contributor in ALL the games in the finals.
No it does not mean consistency. Neither Lebron nor Wade were consistent. Winning the NBA finals means winnng 4 games. You can't even begin to lay this on DG. Tony Parker, Ginobelli, and even Coach Pop need to look in the mirror. You can't expect a ROLE player to win the NBA finals against the Miami Heat. That's just stupid. DG did his part and played his role, that' all. Peace Out!!!
Well it's not like he played bad in the last two games. He has a role. And what he did in the first 5 made Miami put a lot of focus on him. He did everything the same basically but they were actually putting a lot of focus on him so he didn't get looks.
I hope that he shows a little improvement and consistency. I believe he will stay a Spur for the long haul and that he and Leonard will be part of the future!
