San Antonio Spurs guard Danny Green did all he could to try to help his team defeat the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals, but in the end it just wasn’t enough. His shooting cooled off in Games 6 and 7, with his NBA playoff record of 27 three-pointers made in a single series growing by only two in the final two games against Miami.
After Game 7 on Thursday night, Green headed out to Club Story in South Beach to unwind. Athletes heading out to try to take their mind off of a major loss is nothing out of the ordinary, but it was very weird that Green would want to party where the Heat were holding their victory celebration.
Danny Green & LeBron James are boys. But, partying at same club after losing championship? People won't like that. pic.twitter.com/6zOn8I1MCF

The Heat partied at Liv Night Club after winning the NBA championship last season, so perhaps Green thought they were going there again and simply ran into them at Story. He and LeBron were close when they played together in Cleveland, so it’s not a surprise that Green was seen congratulating him. And he certainly didn’t appear to be having a blast.
Assuming Green did know the Heat were going to be throwing down at Story, you have to wonder why he would want to be there. Our favorite tight end caught enough grief for going to a nightclub after losing the Super Bowl a couple years ago, and the team that beat him wasn’t even there. Spurs fans certainly won’t like looking at the photo you see above.
UPDATE: Green later addressed the matter on Twitter.
Got give credit to Miami…but don't think for one sec I was out celebrating with them…jus happened to be at the same place, wrong time
