In response to Karllost's comment:
I always felt Worthy got more props than he deserved. Not saying he wasnt a great player but felt Magic's game and the titles he brought the Lakers made Worthy into a bigger star imo. One thing you have to give to Worthy was he made lots of clutch buckets.
Worthy was also dynamite in the post cause he was so quick.. his first step and quick leap/release were too much for many to stay with. Green no where near that level in the post.
Comparing Green to Worthy doesnt make sense to me. Green hasnt produced anything for us really. He was kinda lost after the Perk trade and missed all last season. Also, hes coming off the bench, not even a starter ... hard to make that comparison
I didn't take the comparison to say that Green is like Worthy in his career accomplishments. Of course not. I took it that they have similar skills and similar styles of play (fast, athletic, can get to the basket on fast breaks, serviceable jumpshot, capable of posting up at times, etc). For that, I think the comparison is reasonable. Jeff still has to show it to us but as far as styles, I think Worthy is a good model for who Jeff could be.
I just hope he can be the best Jeff Green he can be. He will be very very good if he can keep this up. I would still like to have Krstic, but overall I think we will win out in the Perk trade.
Melo may have been a mistake, as I think Perry Jones III will be a stud for OKC!
