But I do believe if you put KG's brain in Jeff Green's body, he'd be an allstar.
Or maybe put KG's heart in Jeff Green's body.
The list of talented players who couldnt do anything in the nba cuz of lack of determination, heart, basketball iq or simply playing hard is a very long one. Thats why when u draft a guy, trade for one or sign one in free agency. U have to ask is this guy a fighter, is he gonna bring it every night , whether hes scoring or not? U cant just flip a switch and be that guy.
Just play hard. Let the offense come to u, in the meantime defend, rebound and chase every loose ball. Thats what winners do. They dont put their head down when they miss a shot, they make up for it by playing even harder on the other end.
Whats amazing is that jgreen has the ultimate example in kg and yet he still coasts most of the time. U can see barbosa and terry have really bought in, they are playing harder and better defense than in anytime in their careers. U can see it. With jgreen I dont. Where is he on the glass? With his length and athletic ability he cant get more than 2rpg? Really?
U could legit say that jgreen has been the 8th or 9th most effective players on the team so far. Rondo,terry,pp,kg,bbass,barbosa,sully all have outplayed jgreen this year. U could even throw in wilcox (has played very well backing up kg) and lee (lee has played excellent defense, shot has been off tho).
Im sure this is not what da envisioned when he inked j green to that infamous 4/$36 deal coming off major surgery with no other competitors bidding on jgreens services, but yet he still gave him top dollar. Im not a huge hollinger fan but I agree with him, worse deal of the offseason, i felt that the minute i heard about the deal and his play has just confirmed it.
