"This kid is gonna be a great player, he's gonna be the replacement player for Paul Pierce, and he's gonna be the go-to guy," said Heinsohn.
I think he's a fine replacement. I don't see Green becoming a better player than Pierce. Both players are different,but Green for me is a player that will be great with Rondo for years to come.
"A month ago, two months ago, I don't know if Jeff had the confidence or the mentality to do what he did tonight," said Gary Tanguay. "Now he does."
"I like that Jeff Green is gaining Doc Rivers' confidence," added Donny Marshall. "If what he did today doesn't get you excited, what is there to get excited about?"
I don't agree with Tanguay on much, but I agree that Jeff has gained confidence, and after this 31 point game. He believes more now in his game than ever.
Tommy has a good eye for talent. Green is that guy who needs to fill Rondo's shoes this season. Like I said yesterday, he has the intangibles to impact the Celtics greatly. If Green plays this way for the rest of the season. The skies the limit for the Celtics. He doesn't need to put up 31 every night, but the effort with the intent to score 31 is what the Celtics need.
