Celtic fans know all to well about tragedy. The Celtics lost Len Bias,and Reggie Lewis in a seven-year span. I believe Green took the right path,and he was lucky enough to get a proper physical. They found the problem early,and now he can get surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm. Despite Green being in Green for less than a season. I feel like he's apart of the Celtics family. I'm glad to see many fans behind him. Of course you have the many selfish fans out there. I think it's unfair to blame Green for anything concerning the Perk deal. First the Perk deal shouldn't have happened. Second Perk was gone after the season he would of been gone for nothing anyways. It does suck Green is gone for the season. It will hurt the Celtics without question,but the real message here is life.
Green will be able to live his life with,or without basketball. I love basketball,and I take it to serious. But Green is lucky. He's lucky enough to have found this health issue before it cost him his life. Green will hang it up someday,and he will need to live life without basketball. Green says he'll return,and I wish him luck on that pursuit. I hope he gets another chance with the Celtics. It's heartbreaking because Green seems like the nicest guy. His tenure in Boston has disappointed many . I never felt like we got the best from Green,but I also knew why. He was in a new system,and he was playing alongside three future hall of fame players. I'm happy for Green that he gets a chance to live,and to realize that life is more important than basketball.
Here's an article from the Boston Herald
“If that’s it, that’s good news,” Volk said. “Technology is always advancing. I’m not really qualified to speak to it, but what’s available now has to be so much different. But at the time we were very concerned with what we saw, and assembled all of the experts we could.”
