Danny Green certainly isn’t cocky, which is surprising, given his lights-out shooting thus far in the NBA Finals.
Still, the Spurs guard, who shrugged after Game 3 that his team’s success in reining in LeBron James has as much to do with James “stopping himself” as with anything the Spurs have done, stayed on the humble train on Thursday. Green was asked about his (and his teammates’) defensive work on Dwyane Wade, who has yet to demonstrate any consistency in the series. Green’s response was typical San Antonio vanilla-speak.

That’s as controversial as a Spur is going to get: Hinting that his opponent might be secretly injured. As far as trash talk goes, that’s pretty weak.
“Hey, man, we’re totally shutting you down because you’re not at 100 percent! Burn!”
Game 4 tips off Thursday night. Wade is expected to play — the question is, how well

Dwyane Wade roared back into form in Game 4 of the NBA Finals to push the Miami Heat to a 109-93 victory.
Wade nearly paced Miami with 32 points to help tie the series against the San Antonio Spurs at two games apiece.
LeBron James paced the Heat with 33 points after being shut down in Game 3.
Miami has regained homecourt advantage.

It was not all that long ago when Danny Green was a street performer who had been afforded the privilege of wearing warm-ups clad with NBA team colors. Selected with the 46th-overall selection in 2009, Green, a four-year player at the University of North Carolina, was to provide depth for the Cleveland Cavaliers as a jack-of-all-trades type player; a kid who didn’t necessarily...
The enemy of my enemy is my friend. The San Antonio Spurs are not the most interesting or exciting NBA team around (and Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich likes it that way). They’re not polarizing like the Miami Heat. People tune in to see them fall. And one of the keys to making the Heat fall is Spurs forward Danny Green.

I’m not sure if anyone expected – in fact I can say absolutely no one expected – that the San Antonio Spurs would eviscerate the Miami Heat in Game 3 of the 2013 NBA Finals by more than 30 points.

If you were told before Game 3 of the NBA Finals that Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and Tony Parker were going to combine for just 25 points in the contest, you would have thought the San Antonio Spurs lost, right? Well it turns out that good offensive games from those guys were not needed with [...]
AT&T Center – Almost a year ago in early July, Miami Heat forward Rashard Lewis was a free agent and searching for a championship contender to sign with. Before signing with the Heat, Lewis was rumored to be in talks with the Los Angeles Lakers, Heat, Atlanta Hawks, and the team he’s down 2-1 against in the NBA Finals, the San Antonio Spurs.
On Wednesday at the Heat media...
Between the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat, there are anywhere from six to eight future Hall of Famers stepping on the court each night. LeBron James is the best player in the world. Tony Parker is the best playoff point guard since I’m not even sure who. Tim Duncan is the greatest power forward [...]The post This Really Happened: Gary Neal, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard and Mike...
Apparently, Big Lou’s Pizza in San Antonio has the biggest pizza oven in Texas. (I’m basing this on a comment on Reddit, so take it with a grain of salt, or Parmesan cheese.) At any rate, Big Lou’s has an enormous oven and is the home of the 42-inch pizza.
