Amazingly, Gerald Green has restarted his career in the NBA. The Celtics' former first-round draft pick is playing with the Pacers and wouldn't you know it, he's still dunking. Green flashed the one skill that always made Boston fans, "wow" on Friday night, dunking over the Bulls on an alley-oop from David West. Green has had a solid preseason for the Pacers, averaging 12.3 points per game, shooting 46.8 percent from the field in 26.7 minutes per game. Green showed flashes of what once made him a prospect last season for the Nets when he averaged 12.9 points per game, shooting 48.1 percent from the field. Green played in just 31 games, but it could be a restart to his career. The 26-year-old former Celtic was out of the NBA from 2009 until 2012 playing in Russia, China and the NBA's D-League.

Gerald Green Gets Entire Head Above Rim Showing Off Vertical Leap at Pacers Practice (Video)

Gerald Green Can Conduct A Visual Inspection Of Your Ten-Foot Basketball Rim

What you’re looking at (minus the quotations I added, which may or may not indicate what was going on here) is a screenshot from FSN’s latest Pacer broadcast.  It has not been manipulated in any way, and I can attest to that fact because I saw the video myself.  Unfortunately, FSN announced that they’d be showing this footage hours before they actually did… so the batteries...

Somebody Stole Paul George’s Rims, Which Is Not Cool At All
