Gerald Green was one of those guys that always flashed just enough athleticism to make you think he could have been a good back up to Paul Pierce. He had that one season where he was hitting 3's, but he never could become a good team player. His biggest contribution to the Celtics was being part of the trade that landed Kevin Garnett.
Green bounced around, going to Houston and then Dallas after Minnesota. He made a few summer league teams but nothing really materialized from that. Lately, he's been in the D-League, where he won the MVP of the D-League All Star game this past weekend.
And that was enough for the New Jersey Nets... who have decided to take a chance on Gerald. Good luck to them. They're going to need it with him.
The last time I saw Gerald play in a non-All Star game was at the Vegas summer league a couple of summers ago, and he was the same old Gerald. With the ball, he was quick, athletic and he could score. Without the ball, he was lazy ...
BEST OF MAXIM
The New Jersey Nets have signed Gerald Green to a second 10-day contract.
General Manager Billy King announced the deal on Thursday.
Green has averaged 5.6 points and 2.0 rebounds in five games since signing the first contract Feb. 27. He has averaged 18.6 minutes.
Prior to the deal with the Nets, Green was named MVP of the 2012 D-League All Star Game. He played in 22 games for...
DALLAS — Gerald Green is not the same kid who came out of high school in 2005 when he was a first-round pick of Boston.But he has the same type of athleticism and explosiveness so the Nets took a low risk, high reward gamble and yesterday signed the 6-foot-8 forward...
6-8 forward averaged 19.1 points per game in D-League
On NBC Sports Talk Tuesday night, Adrian Wojnarowski said Doc Rivers and Danny Ainge have decided internally that the Boston Celtics are not contenders. No big shock there, since they have both presumably been watching the same games we have. But Woj added that Paul Pierce — not Rajon Rondo or anybody else — is the most likely Celtic to be traded prior to the March 15 deadline...
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.
Not even the All-Star Game's lack of defensive intensity could shake Pierce from his season-long shooting slump. He missed seven of the eight shots he put up, connecting on a first-half 3-pointer for his...

While management must decide on the Celtics’ transition to the next era, Paul Pierce is consumed with making the best of a difficult season.
Jermaine O'Neal wanted a team meeting. The captain,Paul Pierce, thought it wasn't necessary at this time. According to a CSNNE report, it appears Kevin Garnett thought it was.
So before the team would venture off into the abyss that we know of as All-Star weekend, Garnett held an impromptu team meeting with a clear and very succinct Garnett-esque message.

Athletes tell lies. Agents tell damn lies. And sportswriters use statistics. It’s been three long weeks since Paul Pierce eased on by Larry Bird on the Boston Celtics career scoring list and tucked comfortably behind John Havlicek into second place – a moment that, although hastily swept away in the avalanche that is/was Linsanity, still [...]

We made it to the mid season point alive, barely. The Celtics have underachieved according to the fans but sit about right with the critics. They have faced injuries, suspensions, and lack of chemistry at times. I think this team will make the playoffs regardless of if they trade or keep this team together. I decided to go ahead and make predictions for every player on the...
Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo recently said the Celtics had to become more disciplined defending.
