Danny Green says they don’t care about the asterisk on the Raptors’ title win
Toronto Raptors swingman Danny Green does not care if fans and analysts have doubts on the legitimacy of their 2018-19 NBA title.
After winning the championship against the Golden State Warriors, people started to put an asterisk on their win — noting that the series would have been different had the defending champions played with a healthy lineup. Green, however, insisted that they are not paying attention to it.
“We don’t care,” Green said when asked by Marc Stein of the New York Post about the asterisk talks. “Doesn’t matter to us.”
The two-time NBA champion admitted that the title he won in Toronto feels very different from the championship he won when he was with the San Antonio Spurs in 2014. He said that it feels more special because they were representing an entire country, and he considers himself blessed for being a part of the successful run in Toronto.
Green might get a crack on defending the title next season, as the Raptors are expected to offer a new contract to him. The 32-year-old said that he already expressed interest in coming back, but he also admitted that there will be a lot of factors to consider in his free-agency decision this summer.
