Spurs Danny Green becoming America’s man-crush

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. Danny Green has been a hero for the Spurs this NBA Finals, and...
