Danny Green, the Draft and projecting the success of an NBA prospect

Danny Green is starting for the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals. He connected on 10-of-15 shots in his first two games while averaging 14.5 points on the series.

Green, for example, did...

Spurs trio rocking LeBrons during NBA Finals

You don't know a man until you a walk mile in their shoes, right? Well, how about playing in a pair? The Spurs' Manu Ginobili, Danny Green and Cory Joseph have been wearing LeBron James signature shoes all season and don't plan on changing that simply because they are playing them in the NBA Finals. 'We thought about it, but why change something that's been...

Spurs ride hot shooting in win

It is difficult to believe if you've never seen it actually happen, but unguarded NBA players in practice situations can regularly make 10, 15, maybe 20, 3-pointers in a row. Not all of them, of course, but the best shooters have gotten their stroke down to such a thoughtless mechanism that making an undisturbed 3-pointer is something like brewing a cup of coffee. And if that...

Heat shellacked in San Antonio, go down 2-1 in Finals

SAN ANTONIO The Miami Heat messed up history two years ago. Theyll have to do it again if they expect to win a second straight NBA title. Since the 2-3-2 format began in the NBA Finals in 1985, when the series is tied 1-1, the team that won Game 3 has taken the title 12 of 13 times. The only exception was Miami winning Game 3 in 2011 but losing 4-2 to Dallas. On Tuesday night...
