not sure what happened to DG in the bubble. i remember him on the spurs and somewhat on the raptors (didn't pay alot of attention last year, tbh) and he was deadly from 3. he hesitates on his 3's and people say he still shoots well (2/5 from game 4, i think, as an example), but he passes up so many open shots and basically kills the offense. let's just say if i never see a danny green drive to the basket floater again.. i'll be good.

he still plays spurts of really good defense but to me, he seemed to have lost a step as well.

if he was a couple million dollar a year player, thats okay. but for 15 million, i did expect way more from him.

Hasn't been deadly in the playoffs for a LOOOONG time: https://www.basketball-reference.com/players/g/greenda02.html#2017-2020-sum:playoffs_per_game
Would prefer if we moved on from him.

He has his flaws but the guy is a modern day Robert Horry as far as being a good luck charm.

Uhhh...I wouldn’t go that far. Big difference is that Horry was clutch and contributed to his titles.

You think he would have missed that wide open shot in Game 5?

Whoever thinks Horry would have missed that shot better read a paper or something.

Danny Green is a champ; idiots who sent death threats against him and his family are not Laker fans.

I think objectively there were almost dead spot on equals as players and the defensive value and IQ each provided. That said, Horry gets the edge on clutchness. One of those rare, "I dont give a (bleep)" attitude that is perfect for the moment

I'm not in a hurry to trade Green, unless of course, a more important
deal is made.

We need his length and D, but again, if there is someone that
provide the reach and gives us more pop, sure.

Our defense is why we won the championship, and he was a big part of it.

I know its easier to watch the ball, but the guy was putting the work in all season and all playoffs.

If the Clippers ever make it deep enough into the playoffs to play the Lakers, and if they had done it this year, you'd see Danny Green being the primary defender on Kawhi. The idea is to wear him down as the series goes down by making him work hard offensively for anything he gets, without having to have Lebron or AD play him. That means when Lebron does switch onto them to shut them down, they'd be weakened by body blows before we brought Lebron with the haymaker.

Matchups are what its all about in the playoffs, and having DG makes us really versatile since he can match up with just about anybody out there. He is willing to play defense, he has good hands, and challenges shots well. He runs through screens well, which we saw in virtually every series.

Danny Green Defense video from Lakers film room

Watching a video like this where they broke it down before this season as to why he is good, and adding in what we saw from him through this season, makes me excited to think of the possibilities of how we'll match up with teams in the playoffs next year.

Missing shots doesn't nullify all of that, especially since he still has people watching him defensively so even when his shots aren't falling they're still sticking to him.

Speaking on his podcast ‘Inside the Green Room with Danny Green’, the veteran swingman revealed that he was playing through pain in his Achilles all through the Lakers’ playoff run.

All the railing on Danny & Kuzma just makes me root for them more. Until they're no longer wearing Lakers on the front of the chest, I want them to be awesome in their roles & help this team win. Hope they come back strong and better than ever.

I'm of that mindset too. I will root for them as long as they wear the purple and gold. They're my guys until they leave. Helping us win a championship adds that to lifetime status for me.

Exactly...Last thing we need is to pay $15 million for a good luck charm...invest in a 4 leaf clover. I think Rob is a very smart GM and knows this exact team won't repeat next year...I believe and hope
Rob can pull off a trade involving DG that improves our team..it more than likely includes McGee (opt in) and possibly Kuz.

He must've hurt it every year right before the playoffs since 2016 since his postseason 3 pt shooting numbers have been putrid for about that long.

Its a good thing basketball is more than just 3 point shooting or the old guy at the gym who never misses 3's could beat Lebron

He's a 3 and D player with no 3 in the postseason.
