On October 9, 2020, it will never be the night when Danny Green will think of himself.
That night, he missed a Grand Slam three-pointer, which will lock the Lakers’ championship in Game 5.
On the contrary, his shooting percentage was short, and the Lakers lost the game.
Of course, they finally finished their work in the sixth game. Green made a speech after the Los Angeles Championship battle was settled. Green said that although he was urged to do so at the time, he would never apologize to the fans.
“You know the human nature of fans, they are just very emotional,” he told the Ringer NBA show this week. “They take the game very seriously. They see us as performers. If we didn’t perform the way we should, then we will apologize for that.
“No, I don’t owe you an apology. If I played badly, you’re not my boss, coach, and I’m not sorry for the missed shots. If I mess up the game or do not rotate on the defensive end, I will I apologize for the teammate’s mistakes and missed tasks. But no, I don’t owe you anything.”
There is no doubt that anyway, Lakers fans will be happy to win the championship for the apology.
If we can know one thing for sure, it is that if you win the championship, everything is forgivable.
