Danny Green says he does not owe an apology to Lakers fans for missing the potential game winner in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

Everything leading up to Game 5 of the NBA Finals was pointing towards a gentleman’s sweep by the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers had a 3-1 series lead on the Heat, they had their Black Mamba jerseys on, and were in complete control of the series.

However, Jimmy Butler dropped a 35 point triple double and yet the Heat were only up by one with 7.1 seconds left in the game. Danny Green got the ball at the top of the key to seal the Lakers championship; but missed.

This miss lead to a bombardment of hate thrown at Danny Green online. Every nook and corner of the internet had a form of hate directed towards the Lakers guard.

Danny Green finally addressed this on the NBA Ringer Show.

Green has talked about the hate he has received online before, and noted that the hate escalated to death threats to him and his family.

Recently, Green appeared on the NBA Ringer Show hosted by Logan Murdock and Raja Bell, to discuss the Lakers championship and the Bubble experience. In a segment talking about that shot, Green said, “The fans take the game very serious and they see us as performers. If we’re not performing the way we’re supposed to, then we’re supposed to apologize.”

Green continued on by saying, “No, I don’t owe you an apology. You’re not my boss or coach and I’m not going to apologize for missing shots. I’ll apologize to my teammates for missed mistakes, missed assignments. But no, I don’t owe you anything.”

Dennis Schroder is reportedly being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers for Danny Green and the 28th pick in the NBA Draft.

With perhaps the first official trade of this NBA offseason, the Los Angeles Lakers have decided to bolster their backcourt. This is also the first trade since the trade deadline ended back in February.

However, in doing so, the Lakers have lost their marksman from beyond the arc.

Dennis Schroder to the Lakers; Danny Green to the Thunder

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Los Angeles Lakers have agreed in principle to trade Danny Green and their 28th pick in this year’s NBA draft to the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder will be sending Dennis Schroder to the Lakers, officially, when the trade moratorium is lifted.

The reigning Sixth Man of the Year was a valuable piece in OKC’s run to the 5th seed in the Western Conference. He averaged 18.9 points and 4 assists in 30 minutes of action. He also shot 38.5% from 3 point land.
