Danny Green pays tribute to Raptors championship season with Toronto-themed tattoo

Danny Green's one season with the Toronto Raptors will never be forgotten.

Part of the trade that brought Kawhi Leonard to Toronto, Green spent the 2018-19 season with the Raptors. He had one of the best seasons of his career, averaging 10.3 points, 4.0 rebounds and 0.9 steals per game on .465/.455/.841 shooting splits in a Raptors uniform.

Green then played a key role in the franchise's championship run in the 2019 NBA Playoffs by starting in all 24 games.

Ahead of the 2021-22 season, Green showed off a new Toronto-themed tattoo that commemorates the franchise's first-ever title.

Green also received a tattoo that pays tribute to the championship he won as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2019-20 season.

Green has yet to play against the Raptors in Toronto since leaving the franchise. He's faced the Raptors three times at "home" over the last two seasons, but one took place in the Orlando bubble while the two others were played in Tampa, Florida due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Now a member of the Philadelphia 76ers, Green is set to make his long-awaited return to Toronto and finally receive his championship ring from the Raptors on Dec. 28, 2021.
