“We were up 3-2 still, they were celebrating, their wives and girlfriends were talking sh*t to our wives, supposedly that’s what I hear…I just heard there was a little bucking going on by the busses…”

Danny Green and the Lakers wound up winning Game 6 in convincing fashion to close the Finals out. Green and his fiancé received death threats after he missed the 3-pointer in Game 5.
Sometimes, sports can bring out the worst in people.
In the Finals against the Heat, Green averaged 7.5 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game while shooting 32.7 percent from the field, 28.9 percent from beyond the arc and a perfect 100.0 percent from the free-throw line. It was a struggle for Green from start to finish, but all that matters is that the Lakers took care of business and won the championship behind LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
Moving forward, though, it’s going to be interesting to see if Green remains on the Lakers. His name has already come up in trade rumors, as the Lakers are reportedly interested in upgrading the roster this offseason.
With the Cleveland Cavaliers, Spurs, Raptors and Lakers, Green has compiled averages of 8.9 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.6 assists.
