Former Toronto Raptors player Danny Green says he was robbed last week while visiting Vancouver for a promotional event. Green, who recently left Toronto for the Los Angeles Lakers, says he was in town for the opening of a London Drugs last Friday in the Dunbar neighbourhood but booked an Airbnb in a very different area.

“We don’t know much about Vancouver,” he said in his podcast. “We booked the Airbnb, on the picture it looks great. They go to check in, we go to eat, and they’re like ‘Yo, we gotta change it, it’s old, it’s raggedy, it feels haunted.’ We didn’t know there’s a ghetto or hood in Vancouver. We didn’t know where we were located at, we’re two blocks from East Hastings, we didn’t know that.”

While he and his entourage were upstairs going over the details and figuring out what to do, their book bags were stolen from their vehicle. Green said they called the police and searched the neighbourhood for their bags but couldn’t find them.
