Danny Green Rips Trash-Talking, Meme Posting Fans And Bandwagoners


Aside from Paul George, who came out to reporters after his shooting slump and revealed that he was in a ‘dark place’, dealing with anxiety and depression which affected his performance in the earlier games of the playoffs, Lakers wingman, Danny Green was the other player who received the most hate and jokes from fans and social media.

Green has been shooting horribly ever since entering the bubble and can’t seem to turn things around.

On the most recent episode of his showInside the Green Room, the reigning NBA champion revealed that he was not happy about the hate he received, and went on to rip fans talking trash or posting memes and bandwagoners.


“I try to see everything from all perspectives. I understand not just the situation I’m in, but the situation everybody is in. There’s not much else going on around the world, people are watching basketball. There’s not much else to watch … There’s a huge focus on what we’re doing and how we’re playing. So a lot of people are tense inside the house, so they take it out on us half the time.”

But my Nanna used to say ‘people are gonna talk shit about Jesus and Muhammad, what makes you think you’re safe?’ So I just try to block out the noise, man. Anybody that’s negative that comes across my page, I usually just block them or ignore it … Just trying to stay focused and have the words of encouragement from my teammates, my coaches and just keep playing basketball. So yeah, especially playing in a big market, that’s expected. They’re gonna talk crazy about you, talk crazy to you, people call it ‘cyberbullying,’ whatever … People just like to talk shit…

…Shout out to the real fans that stuck with us when we were down 0-1. Shout out to the real friends, whether we’re playing good or not, are still by our side. Because those are the real ones. You also know who your true friends are. Some of your true friends have your back, but some of them will still post memes and talk sh*t, that’s what they do. When that happens, I say “memes are cool and all, it’s funny and all, but when it comes to you, you don’t see me doing that to you, so why would you do that to me. And if you’re a true friend, you wouldn’t post something for a laugh.” … I don’t take it to heart, but you just know where you stand with certain people and certain fans.

So when it’s all said and done, hopefully in October if we continue to play the way I know we’re capable, we can tell those fake fans to go somewhere and won’t invite them to the parade. Even though there probably won’t be a parade because of the pandemic, we’ll have to do something virtually, but if we are to win, I can give those fake fans a couple fingers that they might not like too much … For the bandwagoners: You’re not real fans. You’re just bandwagon fans. You’re only fans when things are going good. Those aren’t true fans.”
