AC Green Rumors

A former NBA player is opening the first California location for a cryotherapy business in Sacramento. A.C. Green, who became well known as a key member of the championship Los Angeles Lakers teams of the 1980s, will open CryoBath on Howe Avenue on Friday. “Your mayor sold me on Sacramento,” said Green, who played with Mayor Kevin Johnson on the Phoenix Suns in the 1990s and is chief marketing officer for CryoBath. Green said he’s also had relatives in Stockton for many years, so he’s always been interested in the region. “When that time is right, I want to try something in Sacramento.”
Q. You only missed three games in your career and it was because of Pat Riley. Green: It was coach’s decision [laughs]. Really it was him who called me and apologized. “Sorry, I don’t know what I was thinking. Please forgive me,” he said. When we were together in Miami he told me: “Here we are. It’s your sixteenth year in the NBA and you haven’t lost a game since I brought you into the League brought and you didn’t play three games because of me.” It was a very special moment for me because it was him who called me to apologize.
