Three-time NBA champion Danny Green weighed on the hate that the NBA superstars receive. He is currently teammates with James Harden who gets a fair share of criticism from the fans.

Green has also played with LeBron James and Steph Curry — two superstars that also have a good amount of critics. The 76ers shooting guard thinks that people don’t appreciate a lot of players until they retire.

He then went on to compliment Harden for his personality, saying that he is one of the nicest guys and that there is nothing wrong with him.

“I’ve learned being in this league that they don’t appreciate a lot of guys until they’re gone. And he’s (Harden) one of those guys, just like with LeBron [James], and s—, even Steph Curry has haters, which is crazy,” said Green, comparing Harden to the beloved Warriors point guard.

“He’s one of the nicest, most religious, winning guys. There’s nothing wrong with him, but everybody in the league has people who hate ’em. It’s usually fans of other fan bases, other teams, but there’s always gonna be people who criticize and find weaknesses,” Danny Green continued.
