This video shows just how quickly times can change. It was taken during LeBron’s birthday bash back in 2010 when he was still with the Cavaliers and Danny Green was his bench-riding rookie teammate on the Cavs. You can see Green in the background of this video looking pretty awkward and not really knowing what to do with himself.
Fast forward three years later and Green is a breakout sharpshooter on the Spurs who owns the record for most made three-pointers in an NBA finals series. Oh, and the awkward bystander’s team is one win away from denying LeBron another ring.
Safe to say Green will probably be a little more comfortable at LeBron’s next party. That’s assuming he’s still invited.

We nearly live in a world in which Danny Green is the NBA Finals MVP and LeBron James is a lonely stat-sheet stuffer with a broken jumper.
We don't all need to board up the windows just yet, but with one or two games left in the 2013 NBA Finals, this may be a good time to take inventory of your batteries and canned goods. Reality has been bent up and distorted to the level of...

So The Hoops Manifesto will look to shine some light on these less heralded players with our "The Non-Big Three Star of the Game" award given...

Chris Bosh had several huge defensive plays at the end of Game 6 to help the Miami Heat pull out the thrilling three point victory over the San Antonio Spurs. Good no call by the refs on this Bosh block of Green. Bosh also had a huge swat of Tony Parker near the end of overtime.
Danny Green of the San Antonio Spurs was racing back to the locker room to watch the Sprint Halftime Report (I assume) and almost had his life ended when a CHILD NINJA appeared from out of nowhere and almost took him out. I don’t know why there is a child ninja roaming the halls of the AT&T Center, but he’s there, and you’ll never see him coming. (via Ride The Pine)- Follow...
In his first NBA Finals, Danny Green has had a breakout series, dominating from beyond the arc. The Spurs guard has drained 25 threes on 65.8% shooting (25-38) through five games and notably surpassed Ray Allen in Game 5 to set a new NBA record for most 3-pointers made in an NBA Finals – so it’s understandable that Tony Parker is surprised that he’s still open this far into...
The San Antonio Spurs are dangerous enough when their combination of youth and experience allows them to employ a variety of offensive tactics against an opposing team like the Miami Heat. When their twice-waived free agent addition sets an NBA record for 3-pointers made and his 35-year-old counterpart drops a season-high 24 points with 10 assists, it’s all but inevitable that...
