Gerald Green

Gerald Green (BOS) “G-Money” lining

BOS Shooting Guard/Small Forward: 6’7, 205 lbs; 11th year, Gulf Shores Academy (TX)

NBA Role: heat-check scorer 

One of the most mystifying leapers in league history, Gerald Green is an athletic hotshot who either ignites or combusts; difficulty finding a role as a straight-outta-HS teenager over 10 years back but now, Green makes a living as a flame-on scorer off the pine; takes superstar shots – no matter the situation, Gerald has the ultimate green light in his mind’s eye; volume scorer but can provide half (or more) your bench’s points some nights – if that leaning fadeaway is falling, it’s gonna be a fun night; primarily scores via deep jumpers, should drive the ball a bit more; in terms of raw athleticism, ranks in the top percentile all-time*; thrives under the right situation (& coach) – can Brad Stevens motivate Green to play defense while staying ready in a more limited scoring role?
