If the San Antonio Spurs win the NBA Finals, then forward Danny Green should be your NBA Finals MVP. Green has been a hero for the Spurs this NBA Finals, and with it he’s becoming America’s Sweetheart. Danny Green was 6-for-10 from the 3-point line — setting an NBA Finals record for most 3-pointers in a series (25) — and he scored 24 points to put the Spurs a win away from their fifth NBA championship in 14 years. Danny used to be known first and foremost for what he did to Duke guard Greg Paulus (pictured below) during his UNC Tar Heels days; that’s won him some fans too. When you posterize (and place your crotch right on the face) of one of the most hated players in college basketball history, it helps you win friends and influence people Danny Green at the NBA Finals media session tonight Q: You did the same thing yourself.

  • We love the Miami Heat players. They are the same basketball players who won GOLD MEDALS for TEAM USA in the last OLYMPICS. We are not dumping on or bailing out on them now.

    CHILD PLEASE, Danny Green IS NOT the greatest NBA Finals 3-point shooter ever. Shooting 3-pointers in only two games and in only one NBA FINAL SERIES (that he has played in) DOES NOT MAKE DANNY GREEN GREAT AT ANYTHING; AND, HE IS CERTAINLY NOT THE MVP OF THE SERIES.

    GO MIAMI HEAT; WIN GAME 7 FOR TEAM USA.

We're 48 minutes from true weirdness

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.

Reality has been bent up and distorted to the level of...
