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...
