Lakers guard Danny Green had a chance to be an NBA legend during Game 5 of the NBA Finals, but his shot came up way short when LeBron passed it to him at the top of the key.
Green revealed on Sunday morning that he’s received a plethora of “death threats” since his crucial missed shot in Game 5. To make matters worse, his fiancée has also received death threats these past two days.
“Danny Green said that he has spoken to his fiancée about the death threats she has received on social media directed at her and him since Game 5,” Lakers reporter Dave McMenamin said on Twitter. “… And I feel kind of silly sharing this news on a social media platform. Get a grip, people.”
More of Green:
“I hope they’re that passionate about voting, or injustice for these people who deserve justice – we’ll get some better change in the country.” Green calls himself “an easy target.”
The Los Angeles Lakers play the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the NBA Finals tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET.
