Green can help defense-first Grizz outscore teams in the playoffs

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- If Jeff Green has been busy reading any of the over-reactive, over-delving, over-punctuated musings about himself, he's not letting on to it. Sitting in his locker following Monday night's mostly ho-hum win over the Orlando Magic, Green almost scarily watched as a crowd of media gathered toward him. It was a less-Egyptians-toward-Leonidas and more-cavemen-toward...

Will the real Pelicans team please stand up?

If you’re an NBA fan trying to figure out what’s really going on with the New Orleans Pelicans, do not worry. You are not alone. There is so much confusion around this organization that I think the Pelicans themselves are not even sure what is going on with them. This team is a walking oxymoron. They’re full of an immense amount of talent. But yet, they suck. This latest East...

The Boston Celtics Will Not Make The Playoffs In 2015

Since the beginning of the NBA season back in 2014 the Boston Celtics organization has been under a lot of pressure from local media and fans. Which is why the past few weeks have been busy for the Boston Celtics, and why it’s been a busy season overall, as well. The Celtics went from being a slightly below-average team with a chance to make the playoffs to a team that now seems...

Court Vision: Grizzlies win streak snapped by Mavericks

Green's big 4th quarter leads Grizzlies to win over Magic

  When Memphis parted with Tayshaun Prince and a future first-round pick to add Jeff Green in a three-team trade this week, the hope was it was getting an offensive upgrade at small forward.

Lottery Spotlight – Jeff Green

Is Jeff Green the key piece that the Grizzlies were missing? Ever since being drafted back in 2007, Jeff Green has been one of the most underrated players in the NBA and could make for a great glue player on a contending team. Unfortunately for Green, he’s spent the last several seasons on a Celtics team that has been trading almost all their assets for future picks. Due to this...

Jeff Green in the shadow of The Ring

Last night Jeff Green hit the floor for the first time as a member of the Memphis Grizzlies and I can’t help feeling like there is a lackluster element to his piece of the trade. The talks about moving Jeff were extended over a weekend but that isn't totally unusual and probably can't be blamed for the lack of Green specific dialogue.There’s something else that distracted...
