If only he would have eaten the cupcake…

The Gerald Green era in Minnesota was brief. Now the “Next T-Mac” gets to play with the current T-Mac (when he’s healthy). See everyone, when you try to ruffle feathers by taking your shoes off during a dunk contest, you get shipped out of town ASAP. That’s right, Gerald no longer will be playing for Minnesota. Hey wait a minute…

How does he feel about this:

“It’s like a dream come true. Never in my life did I think this would happen,” Green told Fox 26. “I am on cloud nine.”

The Houston Rockets are in the playoff picture in the overcrowded West, have been wheeling and dealing over the past 24 hours, and Kirk Snyder had played all of 81 minutes for them this season. Gerald Green is a Houston native, and his future is best described as upside upside UPSIDE!

From the T-Wolves vantage point, their GM is Kevin McHale.
