Found February 23, 2013 on Celtics Life:
Jeff Green has been considered sort of a poison pill since Danny shockingly traded Kendrick Perkins for him. That move seemingly ripped the heart out of the team and ultimately sent the them into a tailspin.  To make matters worse "Uncle Jeff's" heart ailment resulted in him sitting out all of the 2012 season. The following season saw Danny Ainge give him a 36 million dollar contract had pundits and Celtics Nation scratching their heads.  After all, he had not proven that he had recovered and his uneven play after the infamous trade gave many reason for pause. During the preseason, Green showed glimpses of what he could be, but no one wanted to put stock in what were essentially glorified pick-up games.  Green's uneven play during the first-half of the season saw everyone clamoring to get rid of him. His small sample size of playing time showed that the more time he got on the court the more productive he was becoming.  Yet, Doc stubbornly clung to keeping aging v...

Highlights From Jeff Green's Statement Game

Celtics fans, enjoy this utterly dominant performance by Jeff Green. #8 delivered his best game as a Celtic, compiling 31 points on a scorching hot 11-14 shooting with 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals, and FIVE BLOCKS. Most impressive to me, he did not even dunk the ball, instead showing off the full arsenal by slashing, facilitating, and knocking down shots from long range to...

Your Morning Dump… Where Terrence Williams has already opened green eyes

photo credit: Boston Herald Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. But the way the 25-year-old has played in two games thus far for the Celtics — averaging 5.5 points, 3 rebounds, and 3 assists in 18.5 minutes — he is making a strong case to stay...

Jeff Green explodes for 31 points, seven boards and five blocks

The Boston Celtics sat Kevin Garnett Saturday and still easily defeated the Phoenix Suns -- thanks to Jeff Green. The fifth-year forward dominated, making 11-of-14 shots, including three 3-pointers, for 31 points. He added a full stat line of seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and five blocks in 39 minutes. It was a dominant performance, but one that we've come to expect...

Jeff Green Takes Criticism of Play, Body Language in Stride as Celtics Forward Finds His Rhythm

Jeff Green thoroughly enjoyed Notre Dame and Louisville’s five-overtime thrill ride two weeks ago, likes girls who are “sneakerheads” and could not challenge anyone to a snowball fight during this month’s massive snowstorm because he does not have gloves. Then again, you know this already — if you follow Green on Twitter. The Celtics forward is one of the most active professional...

Slow start dooms Suns in ugly loss to Celtics

PHOENIX (AP) -- Jeff Green gave Boston a sensational performance in his first start in nearly two years. Green scored a season-high 31 points on 11-of-14 shooting and the short-handed Celtics routed the Phoenix Suns 113-88 on Friday night. "I didn't have a different mindset," said Green, who missed last season following heart surgery to correct an aortic aneurysm...

Celtics See Green-er Pastures Ahead

Kevin Garnett sat out Friday night (DNP – old and tired) and  Jeff Green finally got his chance to start. Doing the best KG impression he could muster, he tore up Los Suns with a season-high 31 points and added 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals and 5 blocks. Oh, hello there! What did you say your name was? I don’t believe we’ve met. They traded you for who–Kendrick Perkins...

Who are the Celtics right now? Can they win in the playoffs?

It's hard to say where these guys are heading. I have no idea what to make of this team at the moment.  Through the first half of the season Boston lost a lot of games to opponents with inferior talent.  I remember thinking on many occasions that the C's couldn't beat any quick young teams, regardless of how bad their players were.  However, my outlook remained positive...

KG to Sit vs Suns - C's Set to Sign White

Kevin Garnett will sit tonight vs the Phoenix Suns and Jeff Green will get the start in his place. Small ball doesn't begin to describe what we will see tonight. More like "Mini Ball." There is help on the way, however. The Celtics are set to sign DJ White, who could be in uniform as soon as Sunday. White, who is a 6'9" forward, played in China this past...

Recap: Matthews out-duels Pierce

The Blazers had lost seven straight going into tonight’s game, but Wesley freakin’ Matthews made sure that’s where the streak would end.  The C’s got big games out of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, but those two didn’t get a ton of help.  They drop a very winnable game 92-86. The Green: The Truth came to play.  After early foul trouble, Pierce carried the Celtics and...

Are the Celtics better off without making a major move

The Celtics players can exhale now that the trade deadline has past with barely a blip on the radar screen.  Boston has made some minor moves to add to their guard core, but still failed to address the donut hole in the middle. The one thing that makes me wander what the "#@#$", Doc Rivers and Danny have in mind for the race to the playoffs was the trade of Jason Collins...
