One of the most notable role player of the Los Angeles Lakers, Danny Green, admits the team is ‘nowhere near’ the level they want to be:

“Everybody’s excited to get the season started, but we know we’re nowhere near where we want to be at – most teams aren’t. So, even though it’s regular season, these games are going to be very much like preseason games.

We just try to get better and win as we’re getting better and getting to learn each other – learn the systems, learn our identity and also how to play other teams and other team’s identity.

But we’re excited from all angles: From the players, to the coaches, to staff to the fans and we’re going to have some fun with it but we’re not nowhere where we want to be,” Green said, per Sacha Pisani of Sporting News.

The 32-year-old sharpshooter averaged 10.3 points per game for the Raptors last regular season, shooting 3-pointers at 45%. In 24 playoff appearances he averaged 6.9 points and made 33% of threes.
