If Green continues to work on his outside game....
« on: November 14, 2012, 10:17:52 PM »
He will be a heck of a player.....there are just too many tools there for him not to be.

He is slowly establishing the idea that once he gets a head of steam up, he is a really hard guy to guard.

Yeah, I just think he needs to believe that he can be that guy, cause he can.

Yes an improved outside game would be good. But his first option should be slash, followed by post. Good things happen when he makes a move to the basket. :)

The key for J-Green is staying aggressive. His outside jumper is fine. He doesn't need to be a great shooter. Just make enough to keep the defense honest. Green scores best when he is either attacking the basket, or posting up smaller player.

Its more to keep the defenders honest so they know he can make the shot....Then his driving game will open up even more.

I think he should be getting at least 20 minutes a night to be honest. He is earning it with his production.

Green definitely has the best ball fake in the league. He has a great up fake from the outside that allows him to get past his man and to the lane nicely.

his shot isn't so bad. I love what he did today and the last 2 games. he's starting to get more aggressive and that is what I like. Maybe it was a wake-up call when Doc called him out and how KG is encouraging him to be more mean.

I hope this trend continues. I'll be satisfied if he could give us 12 and 4 rebounds a night

I'd prefer he keep attacking, myself:



Oh.

My.

The James Worthy Comparisons are indeed worthy.

Keep attacking!

These last couple of games have been encouraging, that's for sure.

And that dunk was absolutely phenomenal.
Michael Jordan: It's a man's game, and you can't play.
 Bill Murray: It's 'cause I'm white, isn't it?
Michael Jordan: No. Larry's white, so what?
Bill Murray: Larry's not white. Larry's clear.

not sure the point of this thread.

He is a supreme athlete.

He is learning to assert himself offensively and to be agressive going to the basket.

Now if he just asserts himself that aggressively on the defensive end, we will have an all star on our hands.

is he has big or long as Worthy? he just seems a lot smaller than Worthy in my view. I would like him run with Rondo and see if he can glide to the basket for dunks like Worthy did for the Lakers.

I really, really don't get what is going on with people on here! He has one nice game and a thread is immediately up talking about how great he is. Did everybody else forget about the previous game? Or hell, the fact that he's averaging a career-low 7 points per game on the season?

He's still overrated, overpaid, and under-producing, and everybody else's eternal optimism regarding Green makes me feel like I'm taking crazy pills.
