Jeff Green didn't have a huge bounce back game against Miami, but he was solid otherwise. Green finished with 13 points, on 5-of-13 shooting in 31 minutes. The Jeff Green conversations can become a bit tricky. He's a highly skilled player who can play three positions. I'm starting to think Green plays inconsistent because he presses, and he doesn't play his game. I'm kind of content with Green. I don't believe he's the go-to guy, or that he'll help Rondo lead the Celtics back to greatness. Green is the best 4th option you can ask for, and on some nights. Green will rise up to play as your best player.
At least that's what he told the Boston Herald in a story published Tuesday. Here's a portion of his comments:
“I can care less about what other people have to say about my performance. You know, everybody’s entitled to their own opinion, so I really don’t pay attention to it. I’m just trying to come into each year being healthy and being able to play this game...They don’t know, because they haven’t been through it. That’s why I say I can care less what people say. They can talk and say whatever they want to say. You know, I don’t give a [expletive]. It don’t bother me.”
Green is consistent at being inconsistent. You can expect a few 13 point games, along with a couple 27 point performances mixed in. It's the player he's been, and I think it's time for some people to get off it. I understand fans get sucked into Green's raw talents. He's just not mentally a superstar, but he's still a very good player to have.
