Here's the real reason why Jeff Green hasn't been signed yet 

Post#1 » by viphost » Mon Aug 6, 2012 2:36 am

Hey folks, hope everyone is doing ok... As some of you may remember I knew Ray Allen wasn't going to sign with the Celtics and gave out results several days before his decision. A friend of mine who is very close to Tyronne Lue does have LEGIT info on couple of things and especially regarding Jeff Green situation. Apparently, Jeff Greens heart is still somewhat at red light. Even though Doctors did approve full court play, after several tests it showed he had elevated levels of palpitations. This is not serious but Danny Ainge does not want to sign him and give him decent contract or sign him at all until he is %100 sure that Jeff is fully healthy. He has seen 7 different cardiologists and heard different opinions...but things DO NOT look good with Jeff Green as of right now... He hasn't worked out AT ALL this entire summer.

This is LEGIT trust me.

This whole thing with Green is garbage if this is true. Pisses me off so much.

And if this is true then that additional SECOND ROUND draft pick will help the Celtics how much...? What a joke.

Jeff Green will NOT sign with Celtics until Celtics medical staff is 110% SURE that his heart is fully healthy. This is coming from Lue not some average joe who claims he's an insider. When things are QUIET Celtics fans should worry. Remember KG's knee injury ? There is NO REASON why they signed everyone besides JEFF GREEN...the answer is very obvious.

Man... I always had a feeling in the back of my mind that this "heart abnormality" that caused him to miss the ENTIRE SEASON wouldn't be perfectly fixed after one surgery. Some complication was bound to come up. :(

If accurate (and it could very well be), this sucks – especially for Jeff Green. One's health is not worth risking it for any sum of money, so I hope he doesn't sign until he's 100% good to go. All the best to him.

That being said, if his signing is still up in the air due to health reasons, I wonder why Green was even introduced with the other signed players a month ago. Maybe these palpitations weren't happening back then?

That contradicts what has been said out there, including on Green's own Twitter page. Today he retweeted a tweet to this interview: http://www.heelstohoops.com/?p=769#more-769. Asked what's been doing this summer so far, his first answer is "Working out" (basketball, weights, boxing work out).

The real question is what the hell do we do if Jeff can't play basketball again or for now...

This would suck. Just when I thought we'd get rid of that scrub Pietrus. :(

Or that time we thought we got David West. Although west is twice the player Green is this would still dampen our chances to contend considerably if this is true.

It would also possibly end greens career which would be a real shame for a great guy.

Lets hope this isn't true.

If true, this might be the worst news in the off season. Worse than Ray Allen leaving. Most of us were looking forward to a healthy Jeff Green having major contributions for our team. Nevertheless, health should never be compromised. I hope that everything will be ok for Jeff.

I hope our doctors actually know their stuff. Since this guy has been playing hoops most of his life and never even got sick.. I am still skeptical..

When trying to guess who's right -- VIPhost or Green -- I'm inclined to go with Green. However, something about that interview worries me in a different way:

I hear a lot of athletes say there was another sport they grew up playing full time, did you have one?

“Well, I never played on an official team besides basketball. Around the neighborhood we’d get guys together and play baseball and football. I like baseball, but I could never catch with the opposite hand when I was younger.”


Does that sound like a story you'd hear from somebody who's ever going to be a plus rebounder at the NBA level?

Concerning? Sure, but the bigger worry is whether he can ever step back on an NBA court as opposed to two-handed rebounding. Besides, rebounding a basketball and catching a baseball (which often is thrown or hit in a straight line towards you, as opposed to a rebound of a basketball which drops down from above) are quite different.

Well I'd hope that he'd be rebounding with both hands and not trying to palm boards with his offhand. I'm not trying to be a complete smartass here but I really don't see how that correlates.

The 9 posts by the OP's name fill me with a bit of doubt. But then again, how many posts are by my name?

In any event, anyone who is counting on Green is setting themselves up to potentially be let down. Sure, I think it is more likely than not that he comes in and plays well for us. But he has been out a year and he didn't quite fit in the short time he played for us 2 seasons ago. These twin notions- countin on Green and discounting MP all together, I think are misguided.

I think both might relate to tracking a ball in the air.
