    Green was on Laker's wishlist. Interesting.

    Cleveland fans can attest to this, Jeff Green goes beast mode every once in 25 games. Those 24 he is really really bad .. stinking trash bad

    Here is the rotation:

    Runaway Trains - Westbrook / Rivers
    Stone Cold Killers - Harden / Gordon
    Bottomless Wings - Convington / House / McLemore / Sefalosha / Carroll
    Junk Yard Dogs - Tucker / Green

    I think that D'Antoni will pull back on Harden, Gordon, WB and Tucker's minutes down the stretch. There will be plenty of minutes to go around.

    Carroll more junk yard dog than Green.

    Justin Anderson is closer to original Junkyard Dog, Mario Elie, in my opinion.

    Never thought I would live the day to see the career Jeff the Cupcake Green be called a junkyard dog lol.

    Mario Elie would straight up bitch slap you if you said this to his face.

    Who knows.

    Maybe this will work out just as well as the last Jazz player we added for the stretch run.

    I was off by an inch.

    Clemons has 6'2 wingspan but he makes up for lack of height and wingspan with 43" max vert.

    At least on offense.

    Struggles too much on defense, 5'9 is too big of a disadvantage.

    Oh stop, you little cupcake.

    He is a cupcake for his historic soft play on court.

    The guy melts under pressure and has underachieved everywhere he has played.

    Dont care about his off court history.

    Justin Anderson channels Mario Elie on the regular!

    Jeff Green is one of the biggest teases in recent memory. Some nights he looks like an All star and others he looks like a G League player. He just hasn't got consistant aggression

    There is a reason for this.

    He might look good when its a casual affair but as soon as pressure intensifies, he gets a deer in the headlight look.

    I have watched him give the ball up with zero interest in shooting in tense moments.

    He a mentally weak player.

    We didnt give up anything for him so that fine.

    BUT I would not trust Jeff Green in big games or in pressure situations.

    He doesn't trust himself in those situations.
