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. Green's best full season in the NBA came in 2006-2007 when he averaged 10.4 points per game. He also won the slam dunk contest that year, but what he may be most famous for is being part of the trade that sent Kevin Garnett -- and an NBA Championship -- to Boston. Watch Green's crazy ups on the alley-oop in the video below.
