Danny Green joins exclusive group with 0-0-0-0-0 stat line in 24 minutes

By , Audacy Sports

Danny Green seems to be a fixture in the 76ers starting lineup, as the 34-year-old has started in 20 of his 26 appearances on the season after starting in all 69 of his games last year. But that doesn't mean he's always producing the stats that you'd typically see from a prominent cog in a team's rotation.

As has been the case for much of his career, Green typically won't fill the stat sheet with gaudy numbers. He's only averaged more than 10 points per game in three seasons. His defensive prowess doesn't necessarily turn into a whole lot of steals or blocks, as he's never ranked in the top ten for either category. He's a lethal sharpshooter, with a career three-point percentage of exactly 40.0 percent, but that hasn't come in a very large sample size, and his two-point game is practically non-existent.

I get it. It's hard to put up stats when you're frequently surrounded by talented teammates and you're the fifth scoring option in a lineup. But it's even harder to do what Green did on Wednesday night against the Orlando Magic.

The ol' Tony Snell game. Classic. Fortunately, the Sixers didn't need Green to do much more, as the four other members of the starting five each finished with 20 or more points, led by Joel Embiid's 31. But he probably could have done a little more, with a plus/minus of -13. Backup wing Georges Niang was evidently much more effective, with a +28 in that same category.

So, 24 minutes with an absolute zero in primary statistical contribution across the board? Let's find the rest of the players that have been able to achieve such a "feat." Thanks to our friends at Stathead, we can do exactly that, sorted by how many minutes they played:

Incredibly, another 76er made the cut, as prime Process-era Sixer Hollis Thompson was able to do so in what was unsurprisingly a loss. It's also worth noting that blocks and steals didn't become officially recorded statistics until the 1973-74 season, so it's possible that there is an unlisted player or two that doesn't appear above.

But now Green is the proudest new member of the group, and it probably won't be one of the career accomplishments he boasts about when it's all said and done. We'll take the three NBA Finals victories — for now! — instead.
