What do Bob Cousy, Magic Johnson and UNC alumni Michael Jordan and Danny Green all have in common? They’ve all won an NCAA championship and an NBA Finals. The list of men who have accomplished such a feat is short – the list of men who have an NCAA title and multiple NBA titles is even shorter.
Danny Green has a chance to do just that.
In 2009, as a piece of the Tar Heels’ NCAA championship team, Green averaged 13.1 points per game and shot 41.8 percent from behind the arc.
Fast-forward five years, Green averaged 41.5 percent from 3-point land over the course of the regular season and captured his first and only NBA title with the San Antonio Spurs in 2014. The year prior, Green was even better, knocking down 27 3-pointers, then a Finals record, in a losing effort to the Miami Heat. In 2014, his Spurs got revenge against the Heat in five games.
Fast-forward another five years, and the North Carolina product once again has a chance at capturing an NBA championship, this time with the Toronto Raptors.
