Jeff Green

  1. Now what for the Boston Celtics? It’s not a pretty picture.

    Dec 17, 2011, 3:30 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen

    What really matters in all of this is that Jeff Green will be fine and next season will return to the NBA. That is what is important. But Green being out for the entire NBA season following heart surgery leaves the Boston Celtics in a bind. Green was key to their chances this season —…

  2. Celtics’ Jeff Green to miss entire season after heart surgery

    Dec 17, 2011, 11:43 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    We thought things didn’t sound good, and they are not for the Celtics. Jeff Green — expected to be Boston’s sixth man — will miss the entire season after surgery to fix an aortic aneurysm, the Celtics announced on Saturday. The important thing is that Green is expected to make a full recovery. This can…

  3. Report: Celtics’ Green will miss games due to mystery ailment

    Dec 16, 2011, 10:45 PM EDT

    Jeff Green

    This is the kind of thing that reminds you more of the Bruins or Patriots, not the Celtics. Which makes me nervous. Jeff Green remains out of Boston’s training camp and is expected to miss at least some games this season, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. The team is being very vague about whatever…

  4. NBA Season Preview: Boston Celtics

    Dec 15, 2011, 6:50 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Last season: 56-26 and a tough out by the hand of LeBron James. Head Coach: The perennially fantastic Doc Rivers. He may not have the mystique of Gregg Popovich or the cult appeal of Stan Van Gundy, but Rivers consistently does a great job of balancing the personalities on Boston’s roster while drawing up highly…

  5. Celtics’ Jeff Green doesn’t pass team physical

    Dec 13, 2011, 11:58 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    UPDATE 11:58 am: Relax… it was just stress, according to Green. Gary Washburn of the Globe with the tweet: Jeff Green said docs were wary of stress test during physical. He attributes it to fatigue. Says he may practice today or tomorrow Okay then. We will not ask about why he was fatigued and just…

  6. Jeff Green re-signs with Boston for one-year, $9 million. Which is weird. And kind of genius.

    Dec 10, 2011, 10:51 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Jeff Green was spoken of as part of the Celtics future, as the big building block to put beside Rajon Rondo. The acquisition of Green for Kendrick Perkins was highly controversial in Boston, made only worse by his performance last season and in the playoffs (though he had a few moments). Green was supposed to…

  7. Weekend NBA rumors and deals (constantly updated)

    Dec 10, 2011, 8:30 PM EDT

    NBA basketball spaulding

    Just because you didn’t go to work today — you’re at home trying to hang Christmas lights, like that’s not work — doesn’t mean the wheels of NBA free agency and trades stopped. Not in the least. This post is your one-stop shop for up-to-date, breaking info on what is happening around the league. (If…

  8. Magic trade Brandon Bass for Glen Davis, but what exactly do they hope to gain?

    Dec 9, 2011, 11:33 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic

    Amid a flurry of activity across the league, the Boston Celtics and Orlando Magic quietly agreed to swap two somewhat frustrating bigs. Brandon Bass, the athletic power forward who gave Stan Van Gundy more than a few gray hairs during his stint with the Magic, is Boston-bound in exchange for a signed-and-traded Glen Davis. It…

  9. NBA “Deal Day” moves and rumors (constantly updated)

    Dec 9, 2011, 7:38 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Today is going to be the Black Friday Sales of the NBA — there will be deals happening fast here, there and everywhere. Just like at Wal*Mart, you might have GMs pepper spraying others to make sure they get the player they want. It’s going to be hard to keep up with all the information,…

  10. Lakers, Rockets, Hornets talking three-way Chris Paul trade

    Dec 8, 2011, 2:41 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v New Orleans Hornets

    After things seemed to cool of on Wednesday, the Chris Paul trade rumors have heated up fast and furious on Thursday. That includes a three-way deal where Paul ends up with the Los Angeles Lakers, who give up Pau Gasol. Then there is both Boston and New York working hard to find multi-team deals that…

  11. Update: Chris Paul trade moving fast, Dwight Howard not

    Dec 7, 2011, 9:37 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    This much has become clear: It is very likely Chris Paul will be traded before the start of the NBA season and talks are fast tracked on that move. However, talks surrounding a Dwight Howard trade have slowed to a trickle as Howard has not told the Magic what he wants so that team remains…

  12. Report: Celtics, Clippers, Warriors “strongly engaged” in Chris Paul talks

    Dec 6, 2011, 7:14 PM EDT

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    The New Orleans Hornets are going to move first — Chris Paul is the superstar most likely to be moved by the start of the season. (The Dwight Howard situation has more questions.) And the Boston Celtics, Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers are at the front of the line, according to Adrian Wojnarowski…

  13. Top 10 free agents when the lockout ends

    Nov 26, 2011, 5:30 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    On December 9th, assuming the deal is approved by both sides, players will re-enter training facilities for the first time since last spring to being working towards the NBA season. At the same time, NBA free agency for the 2011-2012 season will open, and all hell will break loose as teams scramble to sign their…

  14. What was finally decided with those “thorny” system issues?

    Nov 26, 2011, 4:10 PM EDT

    NBPA Meet To Discuss Current CBA Offer

    It was the most confounding part of this constantly confounding NBA lockout. The owners and players got to a point a few weeks ago where they essentially agreed on the money side of the equation — how to split up the revenue coming into the league — but could not get close on the “system”…

  15. Jeff Green thinks he was overshadowed by Durant, Westbrook

    Nov 23, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Jeff Green has never lacked for confidence. He has lacked for defense. He has lacked consistency. He has been a guy who shows flashes of brilliance but now both in Boston and Oklahoma City the team outscores opponents faster when he is siting on the bench. They were better when he was benched. But Green’s…

  16. Jeff Green admits it was “tough” joining Celtics last season

    Aug 24, 2011, 1:03 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Jeff Green came into an almost impossible situation with the Celtics last season — this was a team on a title quest and he was traded for a starter loved by fans and teammates in Kendrick Perkins. He walked in the door with everybody already looking at him askew. Then he struggled to find his…

  17. Jeff Green wants to be a little more like Kobe/LeBron/Pierce

    Aug 1, 2011, 6:15 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Jeff Green is a frustrating player. Great athleticism, there are moments of great play and big shots. Moments you think he can be special. But there is also terrible inconsistency and issues on defense. The bottom line is in five-man units at both Oklahoma City and Boston, they did better when he was on the…

  18. Thunder want Kendrick Perkins to get healthy this summer

    May 31, 2011, 10:06 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets - Game Four

    Some people in Oklahoma City blamed Kendrick Perkins for the fall of the Thunder in the conference finals to Dallas. Those people are wrong. Perkins was not causing Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant to miss shots at the end of games. Jeff Green would not have saved them (people continue to overvalue him). Perkins was…

  19. Can the Thunder slow down Dirk Nowitzki?

    May 16, 2011, 7:16 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks Nowitzki celebrates hitting a three-point shot in the second half against the Los Angeles Lakers during Game 3 of the NBA Western Conference semi-final basketball playoff in Dallas

    He has been the best player in the playoffs so far —26.5 points per game on 49.7 percent shooting, 60 percent from three. He destroyed Pau Gasol in the second round. And outside of hiring Jeff Gillooly, there may not be a good way for the Oklahoma City Thunder to slow down Dirk Nowitzki. Not…

  20. What if James Harden had been traded to Boston in the Perkins deal?

    May 14, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    James Harden

    When the Kendrick Perkins trade went through, there was a considerable amount of flabbergasting about what it was Boston saw in Jeff Green. That’s only intensified since, especially with the Celtics eliminated in the second round and Green coughing up a pair of killer turnovers down the stretch in Game 5. The Celtics have consistently maintained…

  21. Celtics intend to keep Jeff Green

    May 14, 2011, 10:00 AM EDT

    GREEN_JEFF

    Jeff Green is primarily known as “that guy who sucks that we traded Perkins for” in Boston. It’s not fair, he doesn’t play the same position as Perkins, didn’t ask to be traded, and had to try and fit into a tight-knit team making a championship run. He was set up to fail. Granted, he…

  22. One way or another, expect Celtics roster shakeups

    May 13, 2011, 11:48 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics Delonte West, Paul Pierce and Jeff Green walk off the court at the end of their overtime loss to the Miami Heat in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series in Boston

    It looks like Boston is going to make one more run at it — Doc Rivers is coming back, Ray Allen will pick up the option on his contract, Rajon Rondo will get healthy and whenever next season starts the Celtics will get the band back together. But expect changes around them. And maybe even…

  23. NBA Playoffs: Witnessing the ascension

    May 12, 2011, 3:22 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    This was the dream. For all the criticism, the spontaneous hatred from people he never met in cities he’d never lived, for the questions and the scrutiny, this was what he had hoped for. When LeBron James decided to abandon the franchise that drafted him and pursue a team that didn’t think Wally Sczcerbiak/Ben Wallace/Mo…

  24. Celtics’ Ainge says he would do Perkins trade again “as of today”

    Apr 20, 2011, 9:38 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    Two close, unimpressive wins over the banged up New York Knicks has not got made Celtics GM Danny Ainge go where plenty of Celtics fans already have. He still does not regret the Kendrick Perkins for Jeff Green trade, he told CSN New England. Not yet anyway. “I would do the trade over again in…

  25. NBA Playoffs: The Celtics survive the Knicks

    Apr 17, 2011, 10:28 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game One

    Well, it’s been an interesting first round so far, hasn’t it? The Knicks were the latest underdog to give the home team a lot more than it bargained for in the series opener, and they were probably one shot away from stealing a game in Boston on Sunday. Unfortunately for them, poor late-game execution cost…
