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. You kept shooting the ball and missed a few and made a few, but made that big one in the fourth. Danny Green: Our bench guys have been doing a great job all year of encouraging us. Every time we catch that ball they are yelling on the bench “shoot it, shoot it” and they give a great deal of confidence.  Pop does. Everybody. They are doing a great job of encouraging us to keep shooting and eventually it’s going to fall. Q: Having played against LeBron, how tough is Kawhi’s challenge? Danny Green: Very tough. Obviously he’s the best player in the world. He’s doing a good job on the ball and everybody is doing a good job behind him and making him feel confident and able to guard him. Paul M.
