    Re: Jeff Green is NOT a power forward

    While I do not want to get in the middle of this...my lone point will be.  How much worse of  a rebounding front line would Pierce Bass and KG be vs Pierce Green and KG?  Not much, I'm guessing.........these are the players we have, and we are going to struggle rebounding regardless!

    In Response to Re: Jeff Green is NOT a power forward : hahahahahaha and you take the cowards way out Green was NOT a good PF at OKC, end of story, you can't prove otherwise, so many stats were provided by me and MANY others here that you can sit on your clueless island and believe in a lie all you want I'll just root for Jeff Green when he puts on a Celtics uni, regardless, but I won't spout ignorant lies abouthe mans past as you did, let's hope his future here as a SF and part-time PF is better than his below average mediocre career in OKC as an out of position statistically poor PF

You can play make-believe with some other poster. I don't want the be linked stupidity (rameakap). U Know what they say,

    "...From a distance No One can tell whose the Idiot (rameakap) when 2 persons are quarreling"

    Relax 

    The Waco Kid was a coward who committed a cowardly act, so I can see the comparison. My background knows how to handle those types. 

    ".you do not know more than this guy, seriously" - :'D I'm sure my qualifications are comparable, so I beg to differ.

    In Response to Re: Jeff Green is NOT a power forward:
    Bass is just a slightly better PF than Green, neither of them are of the quality at that position that a champion would want. Now if they are both part of your bench, or Green starts and PP is NBA 6th man of the year, the C's could have something special Green in 20 mins at SF and 8 at PF and Bass in 16-20 mins at PF (and Sully at 16-20 as well) with a starter eventually brought in who can upgrade Wilcox and play 12 mins at PF and 20 at Center, being an elite rebounder and active defender, could lead to a title. Hedley there is nothing really to 'get in the middle of' here. Pirate claimed Jeff Green was a 'darn good PF' in OKC. Was instantly shown multiple stats by multiple posters proving he was not even average to good... and instead of saying 'oh I guess I didn't know much about his game out there' like you'd expect from a decent person with humility and class... he moved the goalposts around to start listing 4's Green could defend in small-ball and saying he will have the Posey role, etc. etc. (not a problem with that from me) but all the while refusing to admit that stats like PER, reb's per min and +/- are worthwhile indicators and refusing to admit Green was nowhere near a darn good PF in OKC, and that is a problem for me b/c it's been statistically proven. I'm not a huge Jeff Green fan, but I don't dislike him, and even supported the trade when it happened. but it was clear then as it is now that he is the guy to rest Pierce and use his length and athleticism to hopefully bother LeBron, Melo and Deng on both ends of the floor and not play much PF at all. If Green is playing big mins at PF for us in the way he did at OKC (at least 26 mins b/c KD played 38) then the c's will be in trouble. hopefully Sully is better than both Green and Bass at the 4 and Doc actually plays him

    Agree, and as I've said my dream lineup would be Rondo, Lee, Pierce, Sully and KG   bench of Dooling (until AB returns), Terry, Green, Bass and Wilcox is very deep.  Play them all, then go get that PJ Brown type at the deadline.  Obviously Green will have to play together with Pierce at times, but hopefully not too often.....my point of PP, Green and KG vs PP Bass and KG is that we will struggle to rebound regardless of our lineup.  But like Fierce says, getting to the 50-50 balls will be crucial!

    In Response to Re: Jeff Green is NOT a power forward : Hedley was correct in saying I know more than you Pirate, and while he was also jabbing me a lil for being too aggressive and not letting something go after it is clear to the board I've won, I just find your childish rebuttals too amusing and clueless to let go. Let's see.... I ask you for proof that Green was a 'darn good PF in OKC' and you give none, instead deciding that overwhelming us with reasoning as to why Jeff Green can play limited/small-ball mins at PF in Boston will somehow divert attention away from your claim he was a darn good PF in many mins there OKC. He was not I (and others) showed you stats that proved this. You were incorrect. Green: - turned all PF's he played on avg into all-star level players with his terrible defense - had poor +/- numbers - was a terrible per minute rebounder for a big - didn't even score a ton for the high number of minutes played and shots put up (The O.J. Mayo of forwards) - The team was better, outscoring the opposition by more when he went to the bench - Below league average PER, that is a rating of how 'efficient' you are that ALL NBA EXPERTS use... and Green was worse than Bass So you take all that, attempt to discredit half the stats (an effort in futility) and then come back with... 'well look what he can be in Boston... look at all the team who have players like Diaw, Smith and Battier who Green can defend...here is a quote from Doc that says he will play some PF' HA That is not winning an argument... it is moving it, changing it and frankly taking 90% of this boards opinion on Green and making it your own. We all said that already. Nobody was saying he was a darn good PF in OKC but you. He was not. Pathetic that you cannot admit that... it is all I ask... what you are doing now is childish name-calling and talking about Green in the same way everyone else is/was and ignoring your initial wrong statement while never being man enough to admit it wasn't correct. Sad.

    In Response to Re: Jeff Green is NOT a power forward:
    In Response to Re: Jeff Green is NOT a power forward : Jeff Green is not ONLY a PF he is a SF/PF.   ".. .he plays smaller than his size...""...would rather be on the perimeter than baging down low... " Ans: I thought you were describing these guys ... Thaddeus Young Josh Smith Dirk Nowitzki Shane Battier Andrea Bargnani Ryan Anderson Boris Diaw Kevin Garnett " the Celtics will struggle rebounding with a front line of  pierce/green/and garnett " Ans: What5 if I were to say that rebounding is the MOST overated storyline for Celtics of the past 4 years?  In that time period the Celtics struggled to rebound with  pierce/perkins/and garnett , PLUS Perkins couldnt make layups. 20 NBA Teams are superior rebounders to the HEAT. I dont think anyone really doubts whether or not the Celtics are a very good defesive team. Their defense is a will be fine. I'm in the camp that believes their primary problem was (and no it was just not Ray) losing the 50/50 and "loose" ball battles night in and night out rather. Their Team Speed reflected Not so much on the balls ABOVE the rim but the ones "BELOW" it because of the lack of capable atheletes such as Avery Bradleys, Jason Terry, Courntey Lee, Chris Wilcox, and O yeah Jeff Green.  " ...The loss of stiemsma left them without a true shot blocking presence? other than garnett... " Ans: Celtics are a better shotblocking team than Miami. How that worked out? Shot blocking stat doesnt always accurate determine a successful defesive posession. Teams like Washington, Utah, Pheonix, Indiania, are Charlotte (lol) are all better shotblocking teams then Miami. OKC is a better shotblocking, rebounding, taller and bulkier team than the Heat and the FINALS was not really a CLOSE.  I rather lead the league in STEALS, Opp Turnovers, Opp FG% and 50/50 balls.

    not sure what point you are arguing. the celtics don't need to rebound the ball well because they have gotten better athletically? the celtics don't have to rebound the ball well because miami doesn't? the celtics don't have wade and james so they need to do everything well. i guess the point is you contend that the celtics are fine as they are down low and green is not an issue in terms of playing the four. as I stated, I think he might be okay in stretches against certain teams, but overall the team's lack of size and strength down low may be a factor.
