He’s the fourth player in NBA history to have three championships with three different teams — and he’s the only one to do it from Long Island.
His name is Danny Green.
Others to complete this feat are Robert Horry, John Salley and his teammate LeBron James.
The North Babylon native accomplished this on Sunday night when his Los Angeles Lakers routed the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the 2020 NBA Finals.
The 106-93 victory put his team up 4-2 to win the best of seven series.
In the Finals, Green started each game of the series and averaged 6.8 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 1.2 assists.
The 33-year-old’s best performance came in Game 6, notching 11 points and five rebounds, a game after missing a crucial three-pointer.
Here’s his reaction after winning his third title:
This is back-to-back years in which Green has hoisted the Larry O’Brien trophy in the air.
As heavy underdogs, he helped lead his Toronto Raptors to an 4-2 NBA Finals victory over the Golden State Warriors. The former Tar Heel won his first title in 2014 when his San Antonio Spurs defeated the Miami Heat in five games.
Last July, he left Toronto as a free agent to sign a two-year deal with the Lakers — a championship-winning decision.
