A single missed 3-pointer, and a player faces extensive criticism over the same for days together. Sounds similar to what recently happened with Lakers’ Danny Green. Isn’t it? Well, Green hit back at the critics as Los Angeles Lakers became the 2020 NBA champions on Sunday night.
It was a beautiful sight to watch LeBron James and Co. sweating in immense joy after winning the hard-earned title. It’s LeBron’s fourth in the counting and Anthony Davis‘ first-ever championship. The streets of Los Angeles were colored purple-gold while fans celebrated the heart-melting victory.
Criticism comes hand-in-hand with success, and the Lakers weren’t wary of that. On days they didn’t deliver, the most dominating team in the league has also faced negative comments.
One man who desperately wanted to come back at the haters is Danny Green. He was heavily trolled after Finals Game 5 because of missing a crucial 3-pointer during the last few seconds of the game. And Lakers lost at the buzzer against Miami Heat with the lead cut down to 3-2.
But eventually, the Lakers gave a highly dominant performance in the closeout of game 6, emerging as the champions of NBA 2020.
Danny is a happy man at the moment, holding his third career title. He slammed back at the critics on his Instagram story. The caption read, “Wat they gon say now?”
The haters have little to say, now that Green holds the title close to himself. The Lakers proved their ultimate domination by winning it in the end. They were the season favorites for the most part of it, but they did see their ups and downs.
After a beautiful Finals run, the Lakers deserved this in honor of the late Kobe Bryant.
