Back in June 2011, Celtics Life started a segment called "Green Target," where we discussed players the Celtics could target. We have't done one in a while, but with today being a key date in the NBA trading season (1st day guys signed/traded in the offseason can be dealt), figured we'd kick things off again. Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears mentioned Mozgov as a top trade candidate yesterday:
Timofey Mozgov: Denver Nuggets, 26, C
Contract status: Making $3.1 million in last year of contract. Will be a restricted free agent at end of the season.
Buzz: Of their three centers, the Nuggets are most willing to part with Mozgov, who has proven in his short NBA career and Olympic play that he is a serviceable big man. The Nuggets probably won't try to re-sign him with two other free agents on the horizon: guard Andre Iguodala and reserve swingman Corey Brewer.
"It's logical because they have three centers and it's hard for [coach George] Karl to play th...

The Denver Nuggets — even if you don’t want to admit it — were a team that were puffed up to be something grand this 2012-2013 NBA season. Unfortunately, due to several factors, they haven’t even came close to matching critics’ and fans’ expectations of them with 25% of the season already in the books.

Danilo Gallinari goes glass for the self assist and alley-oop slam through the Memphis defense:
You hear about how team leaders do everything for their teams? Well, the Celtics' leader is scoring, passing, rebounding, defending... and now... it looks as if he's even driving his teammates to and from work.
Or so it seems.
(Thank you, Mike S. for the great find!)

Everyone has their opinions on Kevin Garnett whether you are with or against him. A lot of people say he is a fake tough guy and a phony. I will tell you one thing from my view is that Kevin Garnett is a serious person. He means what he says and says what he means. This small moment in sports during a time like today is proof of many things - Kevin's (both) emotions,...
Never seen this before in the NBA. Always just thought it was something people did in dunk contests. Check out the video below of Danilo Gallinari throwing a self alley-oop off the backboard last night against the Memphis Grizzlies.
Honestly didn't think Gallinari had anything like that in him. Usually I hate on Euro basketballers (mainly for their bad hair cuts...

Jeff Green is one of the bright younger pieces of an aging Boston Celtics team. He showed that last night with this high flying dunk on Houston Rockets player Carlos Delfino in the second quarter of their game. Green would go on to drop 9 points in their 101-89 loss to the Rockets. Check out the monster throw down in the video below.
