Danny Green has never dropped 40 points in a game, pulled down a $20-plus million annual salary, or played in an NBA All-Star Game. Outside of an All-Defensive Second Team selection in 2017, the Philadelphia 76ers wing hasn’t received major recognition for his efforts at all.
What he has done, though, is affect winning at an incredibly high level everywhere he has been. If the numbers don’t always bear it out, his three championship rings certainly do.
That has continued to be the case since his move to Philly, where he has helped the Sixers to the best record in the Eastern Conference as he aims to add a fourth ring to his collection.
Clearly, though, his contributions have flown under the radar at times. So much so, in fact, that a former league executive and noted hoops analyst counts Green among the most underappreciated players in the entire Association.
