Jeff Green’s trying to work it out. Coming off heart surgery and the missed 2011-12 season it necessitated, the 5th year forward has averaged a career low 8.3 points and 3.3 boards as he tries to settle back into the Celtics’ rotation.
But, in the words of Marv Albert, he’s showing some signs lately. More aggressive play, better execution, and dunking over Al Jefferson indicate Green is revving up.
He’s even amping his sneaker selection. Green ditched the black and green Air 1/2 Cents he’s been in for the Jordan XI “25th Anniversary” last night in Brooklyn. He managed just 5 points but knocked in a huge three late in the game to put Boston in winning position. The Nets prevailed anyway, 102-97, but Jeff’s confidence is rebounding nicely. Gotta be the shoes?
