Jeff Green Looking to Stay With the Celtics

He’ll forever be linked to GM Danny Ainge and the guy he was traded for (Kendrick Perkins), but Jeff Green is ready to make Boston his home for a while. From the Globe: “Reserve forward Jeff Green, a restricted free agent this summer, said after tonight’s 97-87 loss to the Miami Heat that he’d like to play in Boston next year. ‘This is a great place,’ said Green. ‘I’ve just got to get better for myself personally. This being my fourth year, making it to the second round, this is a great experience for myself, just going through it. This is going to help me in the long run.’”

    this was, and always will be the defining moment of the beginning of the end for these celtics, jeff green fit perfectly in okc and perk was as important to this teams’ success as anyone of the big 3, 4 or 5 (so sick of all this ‘big’ crap. back in the day you could have big time players together or join forces and it wasn’t so earth shattering, but it just proves that sportswriters need to get a life) –green was a waste of space and it’s good to see perk and nate still playing. good luck to the celtics this off season

    Jeff Green should be looking for some Stick-Um for his hands.

    Nate ain’t playing. He’a a highly paid cheerleader who’ll be in Europe next year

  • Riggs

    He should stay and prove himself. I have a feeling that he will be incredibly better next season and now that they have been elim

    @Riggs: I somehow doubt that, though I hope he proves me wrong. In OKC, he was a major contributor to an up-and-coming team. C’s may still have a good team, but Jeff Green isn’t a big part of the reason why. If he stays in BOS, He’ll be playing bench minutes behind Pierce until P-Double retires.

    when ray, paul and kevin retire it will be rondo and green left to build the team around

    “Nate ain’t playing” because he just ahd surgery on his knee and Brooks doesn’t want to bring him into a new system in the middle of the playoffs. Nate Rob was huge in Boston. He helped win them some big games and one could argue that the lack of a second primary ballhandler did the Cs in as much as the lack of a strong interior presence. You’re just another hater, Nate’s seen plenty …

    Green’s going to get a lot of the blame for this series loss, but it’s not his fault. He’s an OK player who got lost and intimidated in the spotlight. The real blame goes on Ainge.

    Jeff will soon be one of the center pieces of this aging Celtics team. He was drafted by Boston years ago, and I imagine they traded to get him back to build around he and Rondo…


    are yall retarded?, jeff green is a very good role player who actually know his role on the team, which is grab boards, play d, and collect garbage points, perfect player for that boston system

    Green is only going to get better in Boston along with Big Baby and Rondo when the Big 3 decides to hung it up in a couple of years. Its not a bad thing to play behind Pierce plus he can step up to 4 spot and get minutes from KG. Minutes is not the problem, he just didn’t have much time to truly understand his role. He WAS STARSTRUCK for the most part. If Doc comes back next year this team will be back with a few changes in the front court. I will be the first one to say this but the ONEAL’S will be a goner.
