Kenneth "Apple" Green (born September 19, 1959) is a former NBA basketball player for the New York Knicks. Green played for Pan American University, where he led the Broncs to the 1981 NIT tournament, the school's only Division I post-season appearance.[1] During this season Green was an NCAA honorable mention All American.[2] Green was drafted with the eleventh pick in the second round of the 1981 NBA Draft by the Denver Nuggets; however, the Nuggets waived Green before the start of the 1981-82 NBA season. He was signed by the Portland Trail Blazers before the 1985–86 NBA season, but was once again waived before the start of the season.
