Danny Green got randomly drug tested day after huge putback dunk
Danny Green threw down a massive dunk on Sunday that few people thought he had in his bag, and apparently the league office was equally surprised.
The Los Angeles Lakers guard got up for a huge putback slam during the team’s win over the Atlanta Hawks, sending the home crowd into a frenzy.

On Monday, an amused Green tweeted that he was drug tested by the NBA.

For Green, who takes the majority of his shots from behind the three-point line, the dunk was his first of the year and just the 48th of his 11-season career (per Basketball Reference).
Interestingly enough, one of Green’s fellow Laker guards knows all about catching supposedly random drug tests under suspect circumstances as well.
