So please explain what you said, because I am confused.
It's surprising how many people are fooled by Green's recent play. The guy's a dud. Has been his whole career.That's funny, because Green's recent play is indicative of what he's been over most of his career.
His performance with us is to to a large extent an artifact of the role we have for him on the roster.
Dude. I did not say that at all! Don't misquote me!!
I take you to mean that his recent play suggests that he's not a dud, which misleads people -- my answer to this is that his recent play is pretty much indicative of what he's been over the course of his career when given minutes.
This just isn't true kozlodev.
Green's aggregate numbers this year are about what he has had his entire career. His per minute stats are almost exactly the same.
But his recent play, say taking his going back a month(11 games), is not what he has always done. He's much more efficient offensively and he actually is playing very good defense. Over 50% shooting. Over 40% from three. Over 90% from the line while getting to the line by more 1.2 FT per minute. That shows aggression which, once again, he has never been known for.
I am not a fan of Jeff Green's. Heck I have been killing him most of this year. But over his recent stretch, he's been a different player than what he has always been. He's becoming the player some thought he could become.
Then again, its only 11 games and time will tell. He could go into another lackadaisical stretch and even his per minute numbers out like he always has because he is prone to stretches of games of being amazing and then disappearing.
