Thus is my apology to Danny Green. At the beginning of this series I said that the Spurs were in a dilemma. I said that either the play Manu Ginobili and have someone on the floor who can’t really guard D-Wade, or they play Danny Green and lose offensive firepower.
So much for that. Danny Green has set a finals record. He has done it in 5 games which blows my mind.
In 5 games, Danny Green has hit 25 3-pointers. That is an average of 5 per game. The previous finals record was set by Ray Allen at 22. Green still has game 6 tonight and possibly a game seven to add to this record. He could end up with over 30 3′s in the NBA finals.
He has ADDED firepower in the place of Manu. There is no single player that has made more of a difference in this series.
If the Spurs win this championship Tony Parker will most likely get the finals MVP. He is the engine that makes this Spurs team go. Just as big of a key however, has been Green.
The fact that he can stay on the floor to guard either Wade or James and then make the impact he has on the offensive end has nullified the largest advantage that I saw for the Heat.
And so, my most humble apology to Danny. You are the finals 3-point king.
