Danny Green says confidence was the key

Less than a month after winning an NBA title with the San Antonio Spurs, Danny Green made an appearance on The David Glenn Show to talk about his journey from being unemployed to becoming a starter on a championship team. During the conversation, guest host and North Carolina Central basketball coach LeVelle Moton recalled how driven the former Tar Heel was even when he was out of the league. Green claims that it was all about building confidence.

“That’s the biggest key with anything,” Green said. “Being confident in yourself and continuing to have that hope.”

The shooting guard talked about gaining an appreciation for life in the NBA compared to playing overseas or in the D-League.

“You take those things for granted when you’re so spoiled at a school like Carolina or in the NBA.”

As a senior at North Carolina, Green averaged 13.1 points and 4.7 rebounds per game. In 23 postseason starts with the Spurs this past year, he averaged 9.3 points per game.
