Video: 76ers Green Suffers Gruesome Injury During Game 6

76ers guard Danny Green suffered a gruesome injury in Philadelphia's season-ending loss to the Miami Heat on Thursday night. ESPN's Tim Bontemps confirmed Green tore his left ACL and LCL as a result of the unfortunate collision with Sixers teammate Joel Embiid.

Embiid fell on Green's legs early in the opening quarter after going up for a basket near the rim, resulting in the veteran's knee to buckle in an awkward way.

With the severity of this injury and a long road of rehab ahead, this is likely it for the soon-to-be 35-year-old's career. It's just hard to imagine him still coming back to an NBA roster once he recovers since he's already losing most of his athleticism and versatility to his age.

In his age-34 campaign, Green averaged 5.9 points while shooting 38.0 percent from the field. Despite coming off the bench for 36 of his 62 appearances this season, Green started all of Philadelphia's 12 postseason games in 2022. In those 12 outings, the shooting guard averaged 8.6 points while making 2.6 three-pointers on 40.8 percent shooting from long range. 

If this is indeed the end of Green's career, he will finish with three NBA championships, winning one each with the San Antonio Spurs in 2014, with the Toronto Raptors in 2019, and the Los Angeles Lakers in 2020. 

With his third ring, he joined an exclusive list that included LeBron James, Robert Horry, and John Sally as the only players to win championships with three different franchises. 

Green was counted upon as a key 3-and-D player for all the teams he played for. He even set the record for most three-pointers in an NBA Finals series back in 2013 with 27 made triples, before Stephen Curry broke it with 28 threes in the 2016 Finals. 

Not a bad career for a second-round draft pick.
