[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Jeff Green is NOT a power forward : you are not proving anything by copying and pasting the same things
this was not your original position on Green as noted already,
that position was shown to be wrong. Now that you have changed your position, moved the goal posts so to say, to one that most posters here agreed with, where he is a good option at the 4 in certain match-ups (Smith, Diaw, Battier, Durant) what is your point? If Kirk is still saying he shouldn't be a PF at all then he is wrong b/c there are several situations where Green is the better option there than Sully/Bass.
But we'll need an upgrade on Bass anyhow to be a title contender. and to answer another of your questions, some of us here don't think Doc will take Green out vs. taller stonger PF's and it worries us
, esp b/c the options of Sully, Wilcox and Bass are currently overwhelming anyone. But glad you have admitted that Green was not a 'darn good' PF in OKC and should not play more than the Posey 8-12 mins here.

"you are not proving anything by copying and pasting..." Ans: They're just simple questions. By you not answering them proves the case is pretty much closed.
"not your original position on Green as noted already..." Ans: Ok, go ahead, I CHANLENGE U to copy and paste ANY part of my original post(s) where it indicated that Green will be the C's Starting PF for the entire season, that he will play 36 mins of PF for the Celtics. Go Right On Ahead And Look. If you cannot do this it simply did NOT HAPPEN.
If Kirk is still saying he shouldn't be a PF at all then he is wrong b/c there are several situations where Green is the better option Ans: Its Not a matter of "If" Kirk said this. Kirks exact quote was "never" play the PF position so there no other way to interpret that than what was written "never". Kirk , as all of us, should have the right to elaborate on exactly what he meant without fear of an attack, since he hasn't that is a pretty good clue that he meant exactly that "never".
" some of us here don't think Doc will take Green out vs. taller stonger PF's and it worries us" Ans: Look I'm thinking either Some of you fans give these professionals, like Doc/DA, Too Little Credit OR Your giving yourselfs Way Too Much Of It. "Smallball" can be effectively applied to (A) Matchup against the Opposing Team's "Smallball" unit OR it can be (B) Applied to Force the Oppossing Team to matchup (see USA men squad, Miami Heat). Now you and others as fans are still entitled to question anything the "pros" are doing but, really you or myself do NOT have any qualifications nor credibility over Doc or DA enough to predict when or if Doc (a pro) should deploy the "smallball" technique. Now how teams determine when to deploy it depends on obviously who you have on the roster. If your best 5-8 players are mostly 3s,4s,5s (not ussually the case) than your going with a 'big' linup. If your top 5-8 players are (1s,2s,3s) then your more likely to go with the "smallball" lineup as the 08 Celtics did to create mismatches and to hold onto leads late in games. Look at the list of league PFs and tell me how many of these players pose both the "taller stronger" mismatch you speak of?
It really sounds SILLY for you or anyone else on this forum to say "...Oh I can see a bad PF matchup for Jeff Green and Doc Rivers, his stable of assistants/analysist, and DA will somehow MISS IT leaving GREEN in TOO LONG at PF to deteriment of the Celtics BUT OF COARSE I'll CATCH IT BEFORE thE CELTICS DO". My question would be can u name the game/series since 08 where DOC clearly has done so but you of coarse knew better?
Bruh dont play that "...most posters agree..." B#&&$#!@. Kirk and others can speak for himself. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions so its ok for u to stand on your own two feet, and pull your skirt down. I can def see your heehaw. I could care less who agrees or disagree with my "opinion" cause its an opinion that I equally feel "strong" about.
Again my stance or 'POSITION' has not change at all. You just never asked me to elaborate on my initial post before you had decided (for me) what I meant by "my Own" comment.
