Here's what I've got to say...
Comparing others players with Green in two years:
Carmelo: Very Likely
Parsons: Surely not
World Peace: No
So, essentially, I'm putting him on the same level as Paul George, whose having a career year as an all-star without Granger, Nicolas Batum, one of the best SFs in the West who can notch triple-doubles or 5x5s when he wants and Kidd-Gilchrist who is having a solid start to what should be a long NBA campaign.
How coincidental do you think this is? Paul George has always been labeled a pretty good player throughout his career, and was a solid starter on a championship contender in the Pacers last year. One of the best players on the Pacers for sure. Now that Granger is injured, he's a lock for the All-Star game and is their best player.
Now look at Jeff Green who was a solid starter with the 2010-11 Thunder, a championship contender. I'd say third best behind Durant and Westbrook. Unfortunately, he's always stuck behind Durant or Pierce. Imagine if Pierce had a Granger-esque injury (god forbid) or if Pierce retired...
I'm seeing another trend pointing to Jeff Green -> Top 5 SF.
