NBA

Danny Green reveals his top 5 UNC players ever

Danny Green, Raptors

New Toronto Raptors forward Danny Green shared his top-five players from his alma mater, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill — place in which he spent four season before declaring for the NBA Draft in 2009.

The now-veteran sharpshooter traded thoughts with BIG3 voice Michael Rapaport on the matter, ultimately coming up with the right order for his list.

Michael Jordan and James Worthy usually go hand-in-hand for every Tar Heel, as the early 80s were such a golden era for the school, which boasted talent in nearly every position on the floor.

The order of the next three is up for debate, as Antawn Jamison, Vince Carter, and Jerry Stackhouse all had bright careers wearing the Carolina Blue.

Of the three, Jamison is the only one to crack the school’s top-10 list in scoring, recording 1,974 points throughout his four years with the Tar Heels. Carter (three years) and Stackhouse (two years) had shorter careers, but were equally embraced by the school.

All five players would go on to have very successful careers in the NBA, even managing to average 20 points per game or more in multiple seasons.

Jordan is always on the list for the best NBA player of all-time, and surely is the unmovable No. 1 fixture as North Carolina’s all-time best player, now even sponsoring the team with his signature Jumpman logo.

Do you guys agree with Raptors talent Danny Green?
