Any video?

What's player's name defending him? How tall is the player defending him


Well if he actually lost the defender (he didn't IMO) I'd consider it a nice move...I dunno he actually looks kind of tall...I don't think its a move than can be done against taller quicker more athletic nba defenders or is anything close to unstoppable/uncontestable though. Maybe I'm just drinking haterade.


He froze the defender with the dribble, quickness, and hesitation move. That's why he had an open look.

When you find video of players who can execute that move, you'll see those are all elite talent/athleticism guys.

Green is a top 5 athlete in the NBA right now, always was.

Who are the taller quicker players than Green?

Players can contest, but he can get an open look for himself.

When a player can do that all the defender can do is hope he'll miss.

Definitely drinking haterade...

1. Green is EASILY one of the MOST athletic guys at his position so the issue of speed and agility isn't a problem.

2. He is also listed as 6'7-6'8 which is pretty much a median height for SF....he has EVERYTHING physically and talentwise you could ask for from his position. His only issue ever has been his attitude and although a very small sample size from recent interviews and HLs of his play he doesn't seem to come accross with the same brash street arrogance he once had. That's why he would come at such an amazing BARGAIN.

As everyone else is stating playing D-League and in China surely should of HUMBLED him and if it didn't who cares then we waive him and he's gone for good. But he can be an absolute STEAL at this point because if his attitude is corrected he could be very hungry to prove that he belongs back in the league. He had maturity issues not unlike Zach Randolph but the difference is Zach got PT and finally found the right situation that wasn't toxic...there's nothing toxic about our franchise and his experience of being out of the league should only serve to make that even easier and likely to be humbled.

Again I say we start a petition to sign Green to Colangelo and I'm not joking...I just lack the know how to create one on-line and how he would see it.

He has the potential to be that good.

Signing someone like GG would give DD the push to play better and for the first time in a long while it'd be someone actually capable of relegating him to a bench role with good play.

I'm much higher on GG than I am DD, I hope we sign him.

Green has the tools to be a good player but for some reason he thinks he's the next Kobe, VC, T-Mac...etc If there was a way he would want to come here next year at a backup role like Weems' then I would take a risk on him.

I mean he can't be worse then Butler that guy needs to go and now how do you not inbound the ball in 5 seconds it's not like your a rookie, your a veteran you should know the basics by now.

Gerald Green is terrible. Stay away. Trust me..........unless Casey's playbook consists of their 2 guard standing in one spot for 24 seconds. Gerald would be the perfect fit in that offense.

He said he had a count of 4, actual count was reported at 5.8. I guess he was counting like Jack on the broadcast 1...... (3 seconds later) 2, (2 seconds later) 3.....4.....5........WTF man?!?

Either sign GG or Money Weems back because right now DeMar's getting no competition since Gary Forbes is in the doghouse for whatever reason.

Not my opinion.

There is lots of video evidence that shows his game has evolved.

Question, what is the concern about his attitude? Did he do something wrong off the court? Or is it a Rashad McCants type of thing?

Well right now I have Kleiza and James Johnson still as our 3's next year unless a trade goes down where Kleiza is shipped out. Then you have a possible draft pick to consider at the SF spot as well (Barnes/Kidd-Gillchrist) so I just don't see how Green would want to come here unless everybody passes on him and can be a backup SG.

Wouldn't mind him on the cheap in a Weems role. He's better than Butler anyways so if you're gonna take chances, might as well be on him.

He looked like absolute garbage with the Lakers in the pre-season and their wings are as bad as ours.

If Gerald Green had any talent let alone TMAC type of game, 30 teams would have rushed to sign him... Gerald Green is scrub period.

If you don't want him, fine. But don't make stuff up in order to make a reason because his jumpshot is better than DeMar's.

You mean the same guy that was released by a Chinese league team? The guy failed to stick with half a dozen teams in the NBA. He sucks and people who are saying he is better than DeMar need to find another sport to watch because they clearly have no clue about basketball. While DeMar is certainly no superstar (or even a star for that matter), he appears to have the skills and the drive to at least be an average NBA player someday. Even so, that's 1000x better than anything one could expect out of Gerald Green.

about 90% of what's being said in here is wrong.

There have always been a ton of misconceptions about Green, mainly that he can create for himself (his handle is AWFUL, he has some moves but he has 0 ball security). When Green is given the ball and asked to score he's inefficient, he always has been and he always will be. The worst part is that despite his athleticism, he has no idea of how to draw a foul when he gets inside.

What he can do however is shoot the hell out of the ball. A coach that uses him as a spot up shooter and running him off screens would get some serious offensive production, with the added bonus of his ability to get out in transition. Defensively he's improved to the point where he's not a total liability. Generally he's been labeled as an athlete who can't shoot his entire career, and that really couldn't be further from the truth. He's a shooter first who doesn't really know how to use his athleticism.

And for all the talk about him having a 2 cent brain, not working hard enough, etc, it's all way over done. He's worked pretty hard since having a bit of a rude awakening with the Wolves/Rockets, and by all accounts is a pretty good kid. Here's a couple post game interviews from this season:

http://www.nba.com/dleague/video/2012/0 ... ov-1962524
http://www.nba.com/dleague/video/2012/0 ... p4-1962542


Hopefully he makes it back to the NBA this year. He was never going to be TMac, he didn't have the handles or the ability to draw contact to ever get to that level. I've watched all his DLeague games this year, and he's played pretty well off the ball, with the vast majority of his points coming within the offense. Hopefully with some revised expectations he can fit into an NBA offense as a shooter.
