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

According to NBA.com:
“I had no idea,” Green said when asked if he knew he was close to the record. “After the game today...

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.
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...
