So that’s what the top of the rim looks like.
Gerald Green got an up-close look at the top of the cylinder when he put his full head over the hoop in a jump at Phoenix Suns training camp. The leap, which was captured on Vine, is a reminder of the freakish athleticism that motivated the Celtics to draft him 18th overall in 2005.

Journeyman forward Gerald Green is in camp with the Phoenix Suns — technically his seventh NBA team. But if there’s one thing that’s been consistent with Green in his on/off 8-year NBA career, it’s his incredible leaping ability. Over the weekend, teammate Kendall Marshall captured Green’s aerial artistry with video of the high flier kissing the rim…with his neck.

Love it. I've always found Gerald Green fascinating. Can jump out of the ******* gym, pretty nice looking jump shot, perfect size for a small forward.
Guy physically has it all. But he is example #1 about why you are nothing without a good basketball IQ. Spends his practice time putting his head above the rim...
PHOENIX -- The Suns have a new post player who played in the Atlantic Coast Conference, moves very well up and down the floor and has been something of a training-camp revelation.
Meet Miles Plumlee.
While first-round draft choice Alex Len still checks in as the franchise future at center, Plumlee -- acquired along with Gerald Green and another coveted, first-round draft pick in...
PHOENIX -- The dress rehearsal came and went with a reasonable number of minor glitches and quite a few expertly delivered lines.
But suiting up against Israeli team Maccabi Haifa on Monday night at US Airways Center didnt exactly make it tricky for the Suns and first-year coach Jeff Hornacek to hit most of their marks.
They also hit 62.5 percent of their shots, forced 23 turnovers...
New GM. New coach. New franchise cornerstone. New outlook. Last season for the Suns was like the aftermath of a painful but mutually necessary break up; Phoenix reluctantly traded Steve Nash (about 2 or 3 years too late) and spent 82 games metaphorically not bathing, listlessly showing up to work enroute to 25 wins, eating Haagen-Dazs, turning the channel when their ex and his new...
Lets face it: The Phoenix Suns are not going to be a very good basketball this season. In fact, you can argue they will be the worst team when the season ends. The team is relatively young, and will look to build around newly acquired guard Eric Bledsoe and rookie center Alex Len.
However, the Suns do have some athleticism on the wings in the form of two well-traveled veterans, Shannon...
