the guy had open heart surgery 10 months ago. Naysayers are irrational.
I don't think that's the reason at all, and I don't think it's an excuse either.
Green's play in the preseason proved that he has no problem with his physical conditioning, and proved that he still knows how to play the game.
First 5 games I think he just didn't didn't have the confidence, and didn't have an aggresive mentality.
Today right from the started he was getting more involved. Very rarely (if at all) today did I see him just stand in the corner for 5-8 seconds on offense (as he has in the previous games) - he was moving much more without the ball.
Possible that having Terry move to the starting lineup helped, as this helped single out Green as the clearly go-to guy off the bench. Previously Terry was playing like the #1 guy on the second unit, and Green seemed to be happy to just leave that to him.
Also possible that he got fed up of losing games and decided he was going to do something out there. Or maybe KG and Doc lit a firecracker under his rear end!
Don't care why it is, just glad to see the preseason version of JG making a comback. Now he just needs to keep it up!!
