James’ newest Lakers teammate, JR Smith, who played with the four-time MVP in Cleveland, said that James’ shift in postseason persona is a bit of a misnomer, anyway. “Honestly, he’s the same person, bro,” Smith said on the latest episode of the “Inside the Green Room with Danny Green” podcast. “I’m not going to lie to you. He will start reading more, though. He’ll start reading more. He’ll get off social media and he’ll read. He will do that. But other than that, he’s the same person.”
“I think it’s just important that we’re together,” Green said. “Obviously we’re going to need Avery Bradley, we’re going to need Dwight Howard to be playing for us to have a chance. But I think it’s important we stay healthy, and not just our team but the league. Everybody that’s in the league has to have a unified front on what we’re going to do and speak with one voice. But for our team individually, as a group, [the] Lakers, we need to be together, we need to be on the same page, we’ve got to stay healthy. I think we have some professional guys that are on top of it and staying in shape during this time. I think we’ll be a little ahead of the curve with that.
Two of the three players who have been most vocal about the possibility of declining participating in the NBA’s attempt to restart its season inside a bubble next month are Avery Bradley and Dwight Howard — both members of the Los Angeles Lakers. And while their teammate, Danny Green, appreciates and supports the position both of them have taken, it is his belief that players will be able to create more change by going into the bubble and playing than by choosing to stay away.
Storyline: Orlando Bubble
“I think we can use the platform to our advantage and enhance it,” Green said in an interview with Caron Butler on the NBA’s Twitter account in honor of Juneteenth. “I mean, I see both sides. But I think we can easily, and I think [with] social media and all the platforms we have and people watching us they’re going to be tuning in even more when we’re down there.”
“Like Avery Bradley, he’s one of the guys who has spoken out, but he doesn’t really have social media, so [people] don’t really know how he feels, they’re not really able to see and hear it from him,” Green said. “But if he goes down to Orlando he’s going to have to do interviews. He’s going to have a hell of a game one of these nights or a hell of a quarter, and he’s going to have to talk to the media. Even if he doesn’t have a hell of a game, he’s still going to have to talk to the media. So after the game they actually hear from his voice, from his mouth himself how he feels about the protests, about the social injustice, about the movement. For guys that don’t have social media, or guys that don’t have a big following, it’s a better way for everybody to be there and be united.”
Where do things stand right now with talks the NBA and NBPA are having? Danny Green: “It’s very up in the air right now. There are still a lot of moving parts. We’re trying to figure that out. We have 80 percent knowledge of how Orlando is going to be. There are still moving parts to figure out, which teams are going to stay where, how they’re going to do it and how they’re operating in the bubble. Right now, the bubble doesn’t seem as effective as they would like or as lenient as we would like. We’ll have to figure it out.”
So with that said, did you sense most of the guys were in favor of resuming the season as opposed to feeling there’s too much risk involved? Green: “I think most guys wanted the season to come back. I didn’t think guys were against the season coming back or wanting it to be canceled. We’re all for it and didn’t want to lose out on the season. They didn’t want to lose out on winning a championship. They didn’t want to lose out on maximizing their dollar. If we lost the season, we would’ve lost a good portion of our checks.”

Former Spurs wing Danny Green said there were growing pains but Hammon learned quickly. She needed to digest scouting reports, learn NBA personnel and develop organic relationships with the veteran Spurs. “It doesn’t go as smoothly as they would like it to, but we had so many vets that respected her,” Green said. “Not just as a coach but as a player.”
Green, a two-time NBA champion with the Spurs and the Raptors, lauded Hammon as a coach. One of the five best he’s ever had, assistant or otherwise, he said. “It wasn’t like, ‘Oh, this is Becky, or that’s our female coach,’” Green said. “It was like, ‘Coach, or Coach Hammon or Becky’, she’s got some good stuff, see Becky about this or talk to her about that.”
Lakers guard Danny Green joined a growing number of NBA players who’ve taken to the streets to protest in the aftermath of George Floyd being killed while in police custody on May 25. With thousands of others making their way through Downtown L.A., from City Hall to the Hall of Justice, Green marched Wednesday evening with Lakers coaching associate Jamal Boykin and “Inside the Green Room” co-host Harrison Sanford.

Green recently spoke with Jared Dudley about the current Lakers team and said it has similarities to the 2014 Spurs team. “I feel like this Lakers team is more similar to our Spurs team than the Toronto team. In Toronto, we had a lot more younger guys. San Antonio, we had a lot more vets, older guys, but we had a mix. Me and Kawhi were a little younger, but in our primes, and then we had some of the older guys. For us, the similarities I see is that we have a lot of experience, and we have the depth — we definitely have the depth. And obviously the most healthy team always wins, and that’s usually a little part of the luck, but a team that’s clicking at the right time.
Musselman was in the middle of his first year coaching the Reno Bighorns, and his team was toward the end of a 110-96 win over the Idaho Stampede. Musselman’s squad was relatively loaded, featuring future NBA regulars in Jeremy Lin, Danny Green, Hassan Whiteside and Steve Novak. During his lone year in Reno, Musselman, now the University of Arkansas coach, led a team that still has its fingerprints on the NBA nearly a decade later, from the court to front offices.
Novak remembers Lin talking about how Musselman let him play through his mistakes, and improve his point guard vision and offensive game. For Green, who came in low on confidence, that was all he needed to hear. “(Musselman) really vouched for me,” Green said. “He really let me play free. He really let me do my thing. The day I got in, he asked me how things were going, he incorporated me into a lot of stuff, but he was tenacious. He got after it. He talked his trash to opponents. He was a tough son of a gun.”
This is the case with the latest anecdote about the late Lakers legend. Jeremy Lin, a former teammate of Bryant’s on the Lakers, joined the ‘Inside The Green Room’ podcast, hosted by current-Laker Danny Green, to recall the time that Kobe came into practice to bid a not-so-fond farewell to teammates who’d soon get traded. He comes in … sweatsuit, he has a sling for his hurt shoulder, and he has these shades on … and Carlos Boozer says ‘Kob, good to see you bro … we haven’t seen you in a bit, how come you came today’ and [Kobe] was just stonefaced, and he was like ‘I just came by to say bye to some of you bums who are going to get traded tomorrow.’
Indiana guard Devonté Green announced via social media that he will be pursuing the NBA and signed with Roc Nation Sports for representation. Green who scored 954 points during his tenure with the Hoosiers, stated that he will begin his preparation for the 2020 NBA Draft. The signing does not come as a surprise as Green’s older brother, Danny Green of the Los Angeles Lakers is also represented by Roc Nation.
Unfortunately, after almost 10 years of World Peace, Artest has changed his name once again. In a recent appearance on “Inside the Green Room with Danny Green,” Artest broke the world-shattering news that he is no longer Metta World Peace: “The first game that I had with ‘World Peace,’ I was like, ‘This is the dumbest thing ever. I was coming off of the bench at that time, in 2011, and they say, ‘Metta World Peace!’ And I remember not wanting to take off my warm up. It was embarrassing. So I did think about changing my name back, but then I got used, people got used it. “But right now, it’s funny because I got married, and my name now is ‘Metta [inaudible] Ford-Artest.’ I actually took my wife’s last and added it to mine.”
“A few of my NBA guys have been hitting me up like, ‘You cutting?’” said Vincent Garcia, a.k.a. Vince the Barber, owner of Grey Matter in Los Angeles, who counts Kyle Kuzma, Danny Green, Ludacris and Dame Dash as clients — in addition to the many celebrities who go to him when in LA, such as Damian Lillard, Lewis Hamilton and 21 Savage. “I’m like, ‘No. What you need a cut for?’ It’s tough. I’ve got kids,” Garcia said. “But even if I didn’t, I still wouldn’t. It’s different telling them no. But I feel like as hard as it is, it’s still not worth risking.”
