Jeff Green finishing the season the wrong way, the Jeff Green way
Yes, I have excepted that Jeff Green won't be a superstar anytime soon. That doesn't mean he can't play a little better than he has as of late. If your still holding onto this guy being a stud or a star in the NBA, than you haven't been paying attention to the facts. I won't go into a great big Jeff Green rant. I think it's a bit played out, and I'm frankly over it. I just wanted to point out some numbers, and then I'll give it a rest.
Jeff has averaged 12 points a contest during the Celtics 5 game losing streak. He's shooting 38% from the field, and 38% from three. Green has only taken 3 free throw attempts in the past 5 games, with 0 attempts in the past 4 games. Since Green's 39 point performance against the Pelicans.
Green has averaged 11.5 points per game in the past 7 games, after the 39 point game. Before his recent fall, he was playing decent ball, or at least more consistent basketball. I think Green has checked out, and maybe the Celtics brass will on Green this coming summer.
