The now-Los Angeles Lakers swingman Danny Green talked on his motives for joining the Lakers this summer and the toughness of winning an NBA championship:
Per STAT Sports: “It was pretty obvious. It wasn’t a difficult decision. They have two superstars and they can build around them easy. I feel like I was a piece that could help add to a contender and help to turn the franchise around from the last couple of years or so.
I think we have a good roster on paper but it doesn’t matter until you put it to work and put it on the court. Everybody looks great in the preseason. We’ll see how healthy we stay and how good our chemistry is. We have some good veterans and leaders.
I’ve been lucky to have more than one [title]. I’m going to enjoy this one because of how hard it was. Just the ride and how tough it was to get back there. And also win another one. Just have to realize how blessed and special it has been for me. I’m very lucky,” Green said.
This past season, the 32-year-old sharpshooter averaged 10.3 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game.
