Danny Green Changing Numbers Could Be Beneficial For the San Antonio Spurs

Danny Green

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

It may be hard to believe, but Danny Green of the San Antonio Spurs and LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers have something in common. Both will be changing their jersey numbers for the upcoming season.

Green didn’t send out a social media alert to ask his followers for advice on the change like James did and most people didn’t really care or were probably aware of what number Green was wearing in the first place. If you were wondering, Green has been wearing the No. 4 since he signed with the Spurs back in 2011. He’ll be switching it up for the No. 14 that he could not wear because Gary Neal had the number at the time Green joined the team.

The number move could be an interesting change that may just produce some benefits for Green and the Spurs. Green has been the knockdown three-point specialist that the Spurs’ have looked to down the stretch, especially in the playoffs, for consistent production. After rough start with the Spurs (cut twice), he had a breakout performance in the 2013 NBA Finals by setting a finals record for most three-pointers made in a series. This season was sort of a let down, production wise, compared to the execution of the previous season.

Now that Green will have the same number he wore when he won a NCAA National Championship with the University of North Carolina, maybe it can give him a mental edge and boost his “three-point swagger” for the upcoming season. A championship ring may boost his ego a little as well, but whatever it will be, the Spurs need Green to make the shot when his number is called upon.

Stephen Curry Puts On A Clinic Against Spurs

NBA fans and media alike were incredibly excited for the first meeting of the San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors this season, and many expected an uber-competitive game to take place on Monday night. Well, the game was enthralling, but not very competitive. Stephen Curry put on a clinic, and was dribbling circles around the Spurs throughout. Here's some evidence. If that floater wasn't epic enough, in the second-half Curry added this drive in which he pulled the magic out on Jonathon Simmons.

Watch Spurs HC Popovich Pull Fast One On Parker

San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich has become synonymous for his cold shoulder handling of the media, but he does have a wry sense of humor on occasion. This little clip is hilarious how he just messes with Tony Parker. I couldn't stop laughing.

Barkley Calls Leonard Best Player In The World

Kawhi Leonard is one of the best young players in the NBA today and there's no disputing that. Charles Barkley however, believes that Leonard is the best player in the entire world and there has never been a more ridiculous statement to come out of his mouth. If you take Leonard away from the Spurs, they would find a way to be competitive. Take LeBron James or Stephen Curry away from their teams, and they don't have a chance.
