Danny Green, who joined the Seventy Sixers from the Lakers through Thunder, talked about his role in the new team in an interview with FOX Sports.
The Sixers are now off and have made drastic reforms, taking advantage of last season’s reflections. Former Rockets GM Daryl Morey and Doc Rivers, who commanded the Clippers for seven seasons, were invited. He reinforced Green and Seth Curry as shooters to support young superstars Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid.
Green, who has been the three-time NBA champion in the Spurs, Raptors, and last year’s Lakers, believes he can make a big impact in the Sixers.
“I’m focusing on the goals of the team, not my personal goals. I want to win 50 or 60 with this team. I want more than one to be selected for the All-Defensive Team and two or more for the All-Star. From this team to All-Star There’s no reason not to be elected more than one. There’s no reason not to win, and at least I want to make it to the finals. “
However, it may be a little too high as a goal. Last season’s Sixers had a strong lineup of Simmons and Embiid, as well as Al Horford and Tobias Harris, but due to Simmons’ injuries, they were swept to the Celtics in the first round of the playoffs.
However, Green will use his experience to lead younger players as a leader of the Sixers and as a “coach on the court.” “It’s my job to grow this group. Give young players confidence and make Joel and Ben understand what it takes to win. Believe in yourself and hit jump shots. I want him to be. He has that ability. I want Tobias to work both offensively and defensively. “
Can Green turn the Sixers, who have all the talent but don’t mesh, into a “winning team”? Having won multiple teams, he seems more confident.
