The Los Angeles Lakers sharp-shooter Danny Green received a wave of criticism after he missed a crucial wide-open three-pointer in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

Most notable was rapper Snoop Dogg who ripped Green publicly. But reactions like this, be it from celebrities of regular fans, have no effect on the three-time NBA champion.

In a recent interview, Green said he understands that fans can be emotional. However, he is not going to apologize to fans for a bad game.

Per Christian Rivas of Silver Screen & Roll:

“You know human nature of fans, they’re just very emotional. They take the game very serious and they see us as performers and if we’re not performing the way we’re supposed to then we’re supposed to apologize for it. No, I don’t owe you an apology. Whether I played shitty or not. You’re not my boss, coach, and I’m not gonna apologize for missing shots. I’ll apologize to my teammates for missed mistakes, missed assignments, if I mess up a play or defensively don’t make a rotation. But no, I don’t owe you anything.”
