OKC is going to RUE the day they traded Jeff Green!!!

Firs let me say, I love Kendrick Perkin; but he was limited and reached his potential.

Second, let me give props to Brian Scalabrine, for the bold comparison the James Worthy; some might think unwarranted, but I think it is heading in that direction. But let me add another name, from an all-around skill set perspective that also fits - Lamar Odom.

For a cool customer, when I say Jeff spin toward the baseline for his slam dunk, I was impressed. But what I loved more was his look into the camera and blowing his cheeks with a grimace, of , yeah that was me and I am here - Jeff Green with the trash talking ego. I have seen impressive dunks by Jeff in OKC, at Georgetown, and even Boston, but never the "stare". Golden State had the same "passive" issues with Robert Parish, nice guy, but is he a really a Hall of Famer - we see how that turned out.

Jeff is nice guy who, has deferred to Hibbert at G-Town, to Durant and Westbrook in OKC, and to our three Hall of Famers in Boston. Now he seems to be saying, I am not waiting and deferring no longer. OKC effectively choose James Harden as the Durant and Westbrook complement and that might prove to be right, but at the price we signed Green for we might have gotten the better deal. James Harden is not going for nine million over four years.

Jeff Green can be a 20 point scorer with his ball-handling skills and basketball IQ, he can can average 6-7 a game. Jeff is not simply a role player to spell Paul Pierce or be on the end of Rondo fast breaks; Jeff is central piece that not only can we run offense through, but he can set up the offense. This is the piece that OKC might rue. They could allow Westbrook to be Westbrook, move harden to the wing and run offense through Jeff Green, with Durant and Ibaka at the four and five.

We all had our Avery Bradley moment, when we played Orlando last year, and we we quickly have a Jeff Green moment. While we are telling Darko to forget the expectations of being a number two pick, we are going to be saying, I cannot believe we nabbed a lottery pick priced below market value heading into his prime.
