    Jeff Green

    I really like the pickup and am a fan of his game but I have a couple of issues:  First off he is so athletic, but why does he always try to back guys down instead of using his athletiscism to blow people. Secondly, love that little half hook/ baby hook shot he has going on but change it up a little, give a little up fake to get the guy in the air or develope a little up and under move. anyone else see this in his game?

    Re: Jeff Green

    I see a ton of potential.  He has a decent jump shot, great half hook, and very athletic, but he needs coaching to reach his full ability to dominate.

    One thing I would like to see more from him is some fire. Demand the ball when he and Davis are the best players out there. At the same time, it would help if they called some plays for him.

    Love the pick up. He can give Pierce and KG valuable rest while playing at a high level, but he needs to be more demanding.

    That alley oop was crazyyy

    If it ain't broke don't fix it. I think you'll see more offensive diversity as his minutes increase. And right now he is exploiting smaller sized defenders with that baby hook. No need to change it up if it's going in.

    Re: Jeff Green

    they have to resign this kid....24 years old, athletic, can score inside and out, can run the floor and block shots...he should be part of the core for our future...I liked Perk but we were not going to be able to resign him.....did we hurt our chances at #18 this year? ....very possibly....but going into next year....are we better off with Nate.....or are we better off without Nate but with Green & Krstic?

    I think everyone knows the answer to that question....and if the trade hadn't been made that would've been the case going into next season...

    Jamez,
    You are right this kid needs minutes.  The more he gets acclimated the better he is going to be both offensively and defensively. With four all stars there is a pecking order and he needs to put them on notice he needs to get the ball whichever unit he is out there with.

    it's tony allen with an offensive game.
    btw, the hook shot is the most undefendable shot in basketball.  a little okie-dokie addition would be nice.

    he and rondo are our "future". they're the ones we'll build around. resigning him is our offseason priority. nothing else even comes close.

    Re: Jeff Green

    I was at the game last night, and Green was a lot of fun to watch.  He seems to have a basic grasp of the defensive rotations now, which frees him up to play more aggressively a little bit.  Even when he messed up his rotation, he ran out every attempt to disrupt the play. 

    And between those blocks and that dunk... that guy can flat out leap.  He has much more explosiveness than I realized.  Properly coached, he's going to be a force.  I hope this perception isn't tainted by the fact that I hadn't been to the Garden in 20+ years, and I was just plain happy to see a game, and catch a win.

    But it was cool to see them perform in person.  It gave me a much better appreciation of their raw athleticism, and what true freaks of nature these leaping giants really are.  No wonder Shaq's legs are falling apart. 

    Oh ya-

    Welcome home, Jeff Green!

    Green is just plain fun to watch. Easy to see him transitioning into a 30 t0 35 minutes at 9 to 10 rebonds and 18 to 20 points a night guy for the next ten years. He's got a lot of AC Green in his game.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Jeff Green : Agreed.  The reason he did not do more in OKC was that he was playing with another "tweener" in Durant and as both of them matured they became less complementary on the court, if OKC wanted to go deep in the playoffs.  I see him and Baby and the four and three of the future and then we go after Dwight Howard...

    I love Jeff Green.  He's a great talent.  However, as you point our, btownteam, he lacks fire.  I followed him through high school and college (he grew up in my area) and as much talent as he has, he has always been too passive.  He takes control ONLY when he is forced to but will often "let the game come to him" WAY too much.   He needs Paul Pierce's fire and confidence.

    Yes, Yes, and Yes. I have been saying give the guy more minutes. He can give Pierce and Ray rest!

    Re: Jeff Green

    I like his game a lot. He's very athletic with a lot of offensive skills and he's a solid defender IMO and surpisingly a good weak side shot blocker.
       If I were Jeff Green's coach, I would have him work on finishing with his left hand during the off season. I've never see him finish a drive with his left hand. Being to finish a drove with either hand makes a person a much better offensive player. Jeff's a good young player, but there's plenty of room for improvement. I'd love to have him resign with the C's for a reasonable salary of under 8 million per season.

    Re: Jeff Green

    Interesting post on Green, at www.celticshub.com.

    Basically what the posts says, is that Green is a pretty good defender when defending the threes of the world. It also says he is a terrible defender when asked to play power forward.

    Makes Green terrific in the marquis role, but he is not the posey type player who can play the 4. He  just can't defend that position.

    Well it's not like Bosh is super-tough.  I think Green could guard him if necessary.  Also, Josh Smith of Atlanta is kinda the same player as Jeff Green

    Boozer and Stoudemire worry me.  Also, Brandon Bass from Orlando is much bigger and much more committed to the block.

    Otherwise, name me a big man on the 76ers who makes you think "damn, Jeff Green can't hang with him" - the shell of Elton Brand doesn't count.

    depends on the matchup
