Jeff Green blocks D.J. Augustin’s shot as he hurdles him (VIDEO)

Oct 9, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

More Jeff Green for the Celtics this season is going to mean more of this — he is wildly athletic and it leads to some dynamic plays. Like hurdling Toronto’s D.J. Augustin on the break while blocking his shot during Sunday night’s game.

More Jeff Green will also mean more lines like he had in this preseason game: 2-of-7 from the floor, 0-of-4 from three. I know Celtics fans are expecting him to take a leap forward into a leadership role where he will be more consistent; but I expect what we will get this season is what we always have — brilliance some nights (43 points against the Heat last season) and nights he fades into the background.

The other thing you can get off this video clip is how big a man crush Celtics legend and broadcaster Tommy Heinsohn has on rookie Kelly Olynyk. Listen to a Celtics broadcast and you’ll think Olynyk will be both an All-Star player and win the 2016 Presidential election going away.

Hat tip to /r/NBA.

    Nice job by Green. Two bad he had only two FG in the game and couldn’t even draw a foul on last season’s leader in PF committed, Amir Johnson, Green should watch Love tonight to see how it is done.

      johngalt1783 I will bet that Green’s 2 FG are 2 more than you will ever have. I love how couch potatoes come down on pro’s when all they can do is dream about playing any sport as a pro. No x-box doesn’t count.

        Bro: take a chill pill. Fans have ALWAYS been harsh on players like Green, who still can be great but is not there yet. You sure are thin skinned. If that makes me a racist, ok.
