Watching Gerald Green brick his way through the 2012/13 season has become comparable to a drug addiction for yours truly (disclaimer: contrary to what my writing may lead you to believe, I am not currently nor have I ever been addicted to any drug; only NBA basketball) — I realize that it’s a bad habit, that I’m doing nothing but hurting myself… yet I continue to do it anyway.  I can’t help it.  I want to stop, but I don’t know how.  I hate that I’m missing out on so many remarkable basketball happenings out of fear that I’ll fail to catch Gerald Green’s next big highlight, and I understand how  the day and age of Youtube, Twitter, and the DVR… yet it continues to keep me tuned in to the Indiana Pacers despite Green’s dismal 36% shooting and meager 7.2 PPG. I think I need an intervention.  But hey, guess who didn’t miss Gerald’s ridiculous, head-at-rim-level blocked shot against the Miami Heat tonight?  That’s right, me! As the above screen cap demonstrates, Gerald’s head is basically 10 feet (120 inches) in the air.  The man stands 6’8” (80 inches), which means he leaped approximately 40 inches (3’4”) to spike Mario Chalmers’ layup into photographers’ row.  Nothing we didn’t already know he was capable of, but incredibly spectacular nonetheless. Earlier in the game (which the Pacers won decisively, by the way), Gerald elevated to a similar level to finish what was, for him, a basic alley-oop jam. But alas, he still finished just 3-11 from the floor.  You’re killin’ me, Gerald!
