First I'm more concerned about Green's health. This isn't a broken finger,or torn ACL. This seems serious,and it worries me. It may not be serious,and that's great. We have mixed messages by Doc,and Danny on Green's health so I can't say how serious it is. I want Green to be safe first because he's not a piece of meat,or just a basketball player. Now to the basketball side of things.
Because Green had a lack luster start with the Celtics last season,and mainly in the playoffs. We all hoped that Green just needed a training camp with his new team. Well the lockout ruined that chance of a full camp,but with about ten days of camp I still thought maybe it was enough times for Green. WIth his recent health issues,and lack of camp time. I have major concern with his chemistry with his team. Maybe he's still comfortable with his team,and maybe he was lost in his thoughts during the long offseason.
We also know we need Green. The Celtics have put a lot of pressure on him. He's the Celtics 6th man,and he could actually finish games with the starting unit if KG plays center. He's got a unique skill set,but he needs to use it with aggressive force. Green is another part of the Celtics quest for a championship.
