Dang where is the Jeff Green we had in the Pre Season.
He is playing horrible thus far.

you answered your own question - those were PRE-SEASON games. when the lights came on and the games actually counted, Jeff Green disappears. i can't wait for the playoffs !!!

green played a pretty good game tonight after everyones fretting.

9points on 4/6 shooting...he just needs to demand the ball more..

just keep telling yourself that, like Danny does. he has to justify a disastorous trade and ridiculous contract somehow.

Can I ask the anti-Green crowd something? what would you consider a good game from Jeff, seeing as how he's a bench player.

 not a great game, a good game.

Because apparently 16 points and the game winning defensive play = not a good game vs. Utah

11 points and a key steal not enough vs washington.

12 points and 3 blocks not a good game vs. the bucks

and tonight, 9 points on 4-6 shooting also not a Good game.


I mean, I'm not trying to say he's lived up to his contract, or he's playing great or something. I think overall he's really underwhelmed when you throw in the 3 stinker games.

 But from the way people post you would think he's Marbury.  ::)

I'm just trying to see what it takes before we can say "good game by Jeff" and not have people jumping out of the wood work to tell us how stupid we are.

is the threshold 20 points? 25?

Face it... Perk sucks.  He's a sluggish overweight who is a below average rebounder who can't score.  Yes there was a time long ago where he could battle high tier centers but that time has been long gone.

The anti-green crowd will never say he's had a good game no matter how well he plays...

I feel the threshold for green is probably 12ppg average this year...theres too many scorers on this team for him to get enough touches to score more

its no different than how no matter how many good games avery bradley strings together you have posters saying how hes a one hit wonder

Well put crownsy, TP. Some people will bash Jeff Green no matter what he does.

these are the kind of games we need...Pierce 25minutes and Garnett 17minutes on the first night of a back to back

wow the td garden statisticians really inflate Rondo's assists. Watched nba.com's video of the 20 assists, and around 7-8 were definitely not assists.

They are in the modern era my friend, but I agree 15-20 years ago alot of these "assists" that are credited across the league would not be.

TP to crownsy and hpantazo.

To all Jeff Green haters: the trade was a good trade and Perk's gone. Get over it.

Now regarding the contract per annum salary and length for Green, however, I do question Danny's wisdom on that.

I'm sure Green would be more beloved if he would scowl and fumble the ball out of bounds with regularity.

Thought this game was going to be later, but I'm still glad for the outcome.

And great game by Rondo!

And I thought we already had an Anti-Jeff thread, lol...

Just wow.
