Danny Green has won 3 NBA championship rings since he was drafted in 2009. He is still one of the best defenders on the perimeter.
His defense performance dipped a bit in 2017 but he came back strong in time for his 3rd NBA title win.
Green’s career kicked off with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Although he didn’t win the finals with them, he went on to win three different NBA titles with three different teams, the LA Lakers being the last one in 2020.
Since he’s amazing at getting hot from the 3-point line, there might be more NBA championship rings for him in the future.
He joins LeBron James, John Salley, and Robert Horry as the only players to win three different championships with three teams.
