Has Jeff Green hurt the Celtics in trading for a star like Kevin Love?

Jeff Green is more than capable to put up superstar numbers on any given night. When that night is seems to be the question. Green can give you a 41 point game, and the win, but he can also give you nothing in the next few games. Green is in his prime, but his inconsistent career has put a damper on the Celtics.

Celtics Draft Grade 2

Grade:  A-Pick: James YoungThe pick is perfect for the Celtics. He is a long armed lefty, and he can score like it's no one elses business. He is perfect for the Celtics and can play and score right away. It still looks like the Celtics are trying to deal Rondo and maybe Jeff Green, and with Bradley as a restricted free agent, the Celtics have played the first round perfectly.

Is Danny's attempt at the number one pick for Kevin Love?

I still have no idea how Ainge gets the first pick. I'm good with him trying if he keeps Rondo. Would Cleveland want Jeff Green and the 6th pick?
