[QUOTE]In Response to Re: What do we do with Baby this summer? : Where'd you get this low basketball IQ idea. The guy has tremendously high basketball IQ as noted by his coaches in both college and pro. Green is a good overall player. His only weakness is that he too often defers to others (not always aggressive enough). But, he does the little things that others won't do. As for signing Baby, let's deal with that after the playoffs and after we see who's most valuable to the team. Through 3/4 of the season, he is a top 3 candidate for 6th man of the year. Stands in for PF and Center, makes critical plays (and did it last year and the year before). The guy is not a pretty player, but very effective.

Watch the following when Green plays:
1) How many times does he miss the obvious pass to make?
2) How many open shots does he pass up?
3) How often is he not switching on screen and roll?
I am not saying the guy is Nate dumb decesion level, but you don't want the ball in his hands while the game is on the line.
As I said before, regardless of what people say about him, watch his game. Then decide what you think about his BB IQ. (granted, at Gtown his game was totally different than it is now)
As I also said before, Presti is no slouch. He had numerous opportunities to sign Green. He didn't, and he traded him for a 27 yr old center who has reached his ceiling, has had a major knee event, and is a free agent. He has KD at the max and Westbrook soon to be at the max. Do you think he is going to resign Perk?
Let's give it 15 games and get back on the topic if he is a go forward player for the Celts (I am not sure), and if he is better than BBD (I don't think he is)
