Danny Green was given the nickname of all nicknames which dubbed his play, Icy/Hot. For you Spurs fans that have been around since Green put on the Spurs uniform, his performance behind the arc really sums up why he was given this.
In games, Green would be on or completely off. Shooters have their ups and downs when coming to shooting but as Dan McCarney of Spurs Nation put it, he takes it to another limit.
t was 48 Minutes of Hell staffer Andrew McNeill who dubbed Green “Icy/Hot” in honor — or dishonor, as the circumstances warrant — of his streakiness from beyond the 3-point arc. All shooters ebb and flow, but Green takes this to the extreme.
Which leads us into talking about the NBA Finals where Green seemed to dawn the second half of his nickname through the first five games of the series. Green nailed 25 three’s during the Spurs quest for a fifth title. In the final two games, I like what McCarney stated, it was not that he just went ice cold, it was Ice Age/Solar Storm. He went two for eleven.
via Spurs Nation:
Green largely accomplished his goal of becoming a more consistent performer in his second campaign as a full-time starter, and the first after earning a multi-million deal from the Spurs. He ranked seventh in 3-point percentage — just 0.7 of a point less than last season — and eighth in 3-point makes (177). His 56.0 percentage on open 3-point led the entire NBA, providing the floor spacing that is such a key in the Spurs’ pick-and-roll attack.
Green also has been a key defender for the Spurs. He can go from being solid to outstanding depending on the player in which he is guarding.
He has a great future of head of him. I can keep stating this but playing alongside of three possible Hall of Famers in Duncan, Parker and Ginobili can only warrant good things to come.
