Jeff Green

  1. 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…

  2. 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”…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. Celtic fans, what you see with Jeff Green is what you get

    Apr 5, 2011, 3:02 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Houston Rockets

    When Danny Ainge pulled the trigger on the Jeff Green, Kendrick Perkins trade that Ainge thought more highly of Green than myself and some others did. Not that Green is a bad player, he’s just kind of average (not the elite player some think). He’s athletic but his shot selection has always been poor and…

  15. MRI Negative for Celtics’ Krstic, disaster averted

    Apr 2, 2011, 4:48 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Boston Celtics

    Danny Ainge had to breathe a sigh of relief Saturday. Nenad Krstic went down Thursday night with what looked like a fairly serious knee injury. CSN New England reports Saturday that and MRI for Krstic was negative and he is day to day with a bone bruise. It’s a huge bullet dodged for the Celtics…

  16. Kendrick Perkins agrees to contract extension with Thunder

    Mar 1, 2011, 12:16 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 4: Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    UPDATE 12:16 pm: We have the financial figures — $34.8 million over four years, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. That works out to an average of $8.7 million a year and is about $12 million more than Boston could offer. Boston was hamstrung with its offer because it is over the salary cap, which…

  17. Deadline shocker: Celtics trade Perkins, Robinson to Thunder for Green, Krstic

    Feb 24, 2011, 3:48 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 6:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    Boston has made a deadline deal that seems to weaken their defense as they head in the playoffs — and just made the Oklahoma City Thunder a much bigger threat in the West. Boston has traded Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson to the Oklahoma City Thunder for forward Jeff Green and center Nenad Krstic, as…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Spurs remain kings of end game execution

    Feb 24, 2011, 10:02 AM EDT

    gary neal

    Carmelo Anthony’s debut as a Knick was our game of the night. Spurs 109, Thunder 105: Fantastic effort by the Thunder on the second night of a back-to-back on the road, but it’s the little things in these games. Like Gary Neal stepping back to take a three in transition that was a bad decision…

  19. Start your planning early, the top 25 free agents of 2011

    Image (1) marc-gasol-thumb-250x210-17949.jpg for post 3610

    Today, we’re not thinking about lockouts and franchise tags. Today, just for today, we’re going to pretend that the owners and players are not so stupid as have a protracted lockout during a recession killing the momentum the league is building this season. A man can dream, can’t he? Along those lines, right about now…

  20. Trevor Ariza’s sprained ankle has him out two weeks; Sasha Pavlovic signed

    Feb 3, 2011, 4:12 PM EDT

    Trevor Ariza

    UPDATE 4:12 pm: Not but a few minutes after we posted this did the report come out (via the Times-Picayune) that Ariza will be out about two weeks. To fill in the roster space, forward Sasha Pavlovic was signed by the Hornets to a 10-day deal. Pavlovic just came off a 10-day contract with the…

  21. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Two entertaining games and some ice cold Heat

    Jan 14, 2011, 3:22 AM EDT

    Durant Westbrook

    What you missed while thinking about the worst things people call food…. Thunder 125, Magic 124: Two teams that will make their bones in the playoffs on defense set it aside for a night, and that led to one really entertaining game. To be fair, there was a lot of hot offensive talent on the…

  22. What is the deal with the Celtics and superstar-less teams?

    Nov 20, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    There’s something bizarre with these Celtics. They have three losses, and two of them are to teams without or missing their superstar. First they lost to the Cavaliers, which is odd since they don’t have you-know-who anymore, after they beat you-know-who the night before. But it was a back-to-back so maybe it was just one…

  23. Kevin Durant to sit out against Celtics Friday

    Nov 19, 2010, 6:24 PM EDT

    Image (1) durant.jpg for post 425

    UPDATE #2 6:24 pm: It is official, Durant is going to sit out the Celtics/Thunder Friday night matchup due to a sprained ankle suffered Wednesday night against the Rockets. An MRI showed no structural damage, but it’s too much to play through. The Oklahoman had a quote from the man. “After the game, I think…

  24. Oklahoma City winning at the free throw line

    Nov 12, 2010, 3:05 PM EDT

    durant_FT

    Oklahoma City has not been right so far this season. The offense ends up in too much isolation for Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. The defense lacks the tenacity it had last season, teams are shooting well against them. OKC is not creating turnovers and converting those into the spectacular transition points we expect. But…

  25. One deal that could get done: Al Horford extension

    Oct 31, 2010, 1:08 PM EDT

    AHorford_post

    It’s been a scary year for the class of 2007 — only two players have gotten extensions after their rookie deals. No for Greg Oden. No for Jeff Green. No for Rodney Stuckey. No for Al Thornton. No for Thaddeus Young. No for Yi Jianlian. Maybe for Al Horford. The Hawks and Horford are still…
