    Honestly RFX, I don't have a real strong opinion on Green, I'm mostly just repeating what I've read about him. Anyway, as much as Green might have a upside there are a ton of super athletic projects out there and not so many guys that can play center well.

    From ProBasketBallTalk:

    "Jeff Green is a quality backup combo forward, but he was overrated for a while and people are really taking notice of his weak defense and poor shot selection. He makes up for some of that with athleticism. He's not a starter, not yet anyway, but as a backup to Paul Pierce he's an improvement over Marquis Daniels. Marginally. Maybe Green is someone who could someday develop enough to slide into Pierce's starting spot when he walks away. But this is a guy with a PER below the league average, he's not that special. And his rookie contract is up in a couple years."

    damn the celtics are working like dogs in this game. they can't keep playing this hard or they'll run out of gas.

    and that female NBA official sucks. she really is bad at her job. oooommygoood she sucks (and she made a shitty cal "for the celtics")... and now they reverse it! hahaha the reversed the bitch's bad call. usually the refs will stick up for their own... but she's that bad.

    Also...rumor that Rashhed Wallace may be back? That's funny. He was out of shape last year when he was was still playing. He rebounded a little in the playoffs after KG called him out for it in the 1st round. But he sucked down low for most of the season.

    Also....Don't get M. Daniels being sold for cash?? He was best defender on that 2nd team. They dumped 2 guys to Cleveland so they had roster space to keep Daniels. Ainge must be clearing cap space for some free agent signings?. Now or has he given up and is looking at FAs this summer?

    The problem with the Heat is that in the regular season they still come into a game, play well at the start, and then just inexplicably shit the bed. We saw that last night at Chicago. Lebron and Wade go into god mode, their teammates become even more passive, and Spo stands there and scratches his head.

    I think the two elite teams that are the best at sticking to a scheme and keeping a consistent effort and focus are Boston and SA. Right now I believe they are the two best teams

    I would put LA in the conversation if their defenders are right and they just stop coasting, and the Heat if they can fix the problem above.
