Danny Green is a professional basketball player. He played college basketball for the University of North Carolina (UNC), where he played in more games (145) and had more wins (123) than any Tar Heel before him.
He won an NCAA championship his senior year and was subsequently drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers with the 46th overall pick in the 2009 NBA draft. During the 2013 NBA Finals, Green set an NBA record for most three-point field goals made in a Finals series. He then won an NBA championship with the San Antonio Spurs the following season and became just the third player from UNC to win an NCAA championship and an NBA championship, the two others being James Worthy and Michael Jordan. In 2019, he won a second NBA championship in his only season with the Toronto Raptors. Subsequently, Green won a third championship in 2020 in his only season with the Los Angeles Lakers. As of 2021, he plays for the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers.
In 2018, Green and longtime friend and sports broadcaster Harrison Sanford launched a podcast entitled "Inside the Green Room". The podcast gained sponsorship from Yahoo Sports Canada. Green has expressed an interest in moving into sports broadcasting after his playing career is over.
