Danny Green thinks the Boston Celtics will come out of the East, forgets he plays for the 76ers
Danny Green was back on his podcast with a hot mic letting takes rip again. This time on Inside the Green Room, Green was discussing the NBA Playoffs and what team he believes will come out of the Eastern Conference. Hint: He didn’t pick the team he plays for.
To be clear, Danny Green plays for the Philadelphia 76ers, a team that is now in third place in the East, a half game behind the Milwaukee Bucks, and 1.5 games behind the East-leading Miami Heat. Regardless, Danny Green believes that the Boston Celtics will be the team that makes it out of the Eastern Conference.

Boston has been on fire over the last month of the NBA season. They have won five straight games and 9 out of their last 10. They are 46-28 and basically tied with the Sixers for the third seed in the East with 10 games left on the regular season schedule.
Danny Green on the Celtics
“I think that’s a team that might be the sleeper that comes out or gets to the Eastern Conference Finals when people don’t expect them to because they’ve been hooping,” Green said. “They’ve been playing defense. Their offense has helped their defense because they’ve been playing a lot smoother, more together, which was interesting to me.”
Look, I get that Danny Green is just analyzing the NBA on his podcast and sharing his opinions but I would be lying if I said it didn’t bother me that a member of the Philadelphia 76ers is out there saying other teams are going to win the East.
I’m more of a “fear no one, seeding doesn’t matter, the Sixers are going to the finals” type of guy and having one of our own go out there saying the Boston Celtics of all teams could be the team to go to the Finals is pretty lame.
Just lie to everyone and say that the 76ers are poised to make a run at the finals. You literally play for the team, Danny, it shouldn’t even be a topic of discussion. As for the Celtics? We’ll see how they hold up in the playoffs. This team has been playing together for the past 4-5 years and rarely make any type of noise when it matters most.
Is Al Horford going to bang in the paint with Embiid in a seven game series? Nope, he’s not, and when the game slows down and the Celtics have to play in the half court, a lot of their success completely disappears. Sure, they are racking up wins over the past two months but I’m not impressed. Their schedule was sub-par at best.
If I can spot a fraud team, why can’t Danny Green?
Anyways, the Sixers are back in action tonight against the Los Angeles Clippers. We’re only 10 games away from when basketball matters again. Hang tight.
