Danny Green explained what makes the Los Angeles Lakers different from his previous championships teams.

Prior to joining the Lakers, Green won two NBA titles with the Toronto Raptors (2019) and the San Antonio Spurs (2014), respectively.

“Definitely, and not even from an individual, personal success standpoint. I wasn’t having my best season as an individual player, but just being around the guys, and having fun with the group, and how much success our group was having.

I think guys understood the bigger picture and were having so much fun. Nobody really cared the numbers that they got, or what they were doing individually.

We had so many different pieces bringing so much to the table to where we were having fun and winning games whether we’re playing 10-15 minutes, 20-25 minutes or five minutes. Guys didn’t really care because we were having so much fun.

This has definitely been one of the most seasons I’ve had since I’ve been in the league because we were winning, and because nobody was fighting over time, minutes or touches. Everybody just did their part, fell in line and did their role to the best of their ability,” Green said, via Sabreena Merchant of Silver Screen and Roll.
