Danny Green was a great signing.
He is a proven winner.
And fills a position of need.

Wide open 3's for him. Lol. When AD, Lebron and Cousins are on the floor with Green, the defense will have no choice to have guys help or cheat into the paint off Green.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say this might be the best 3 pt shooting team we've had in quite awhile.

TV analysts have already forgotten about him. First and biggest money signing for the Lakers this offseason and I rarely hear a mention of him. All I hear about is how the Lakers defense is iffy and they talk about Rondo (rightfully so) and LeBron taking plays off (when he's still a net positive on D) and AD being a "pretty good defender" (way to play down his actual impact). Little to no mentions of Green. He's gonna make 3 to 4 3's per game while playing great perimeter defense. Dude's a gamer.

Plus the guy knows how to spot a winner. He said he signed with us because we were the best team in the league with Lebron/AD. He knows how to capitalize on the attention stars get. This guy is going to bail us out time and time again when our stars get doubled. The fact that our 2 best players are also excellent passers means he'll be getting a ton of open looks.

The bolded is so so true. I would guess that Green is going to be our defensive coordinator on the court. So much of defense is predicated on scheme, effort and philosophy. Most teams that are good to great on defense only have 3 to 4 plus defenders if that. They're not loaded with 10 plus defenders. Do you have the right defensive anchor, like Gobert in Utah? Who else is a great defender for the Jazz? But they will be good defensively because of the scheme and of course, Gobert. The Lakers are going to be much better on D than the pundits think because there are plus defenders on the roster, with AD being criminally undervalued by them, and Vogel is a defensive head coach.

Quite a change in philosophy from Magic's "all-playmakers, no shooters" one last offseason.

I was thinking this as well.
