    Some positives about Green.

    1. His shot has improved a ton
    2. He is getting calls at the rim, and is taking on contact
    3. He looks way more comfortable both on and off the ball.

    Still a lot to learn, but the young man has a very bright future.

    The taking on contact is huge. Now when Green develops "go-to" spots on the floor from mid-range, as all the great scorers do, man look out.

    5. Thank Goodness Jalen Green Is Back

    Jalen Green was trending up before a hamstring injury sidelined him in late November, but he’s been better than ever since returning just before Christmas. Through his past four games, Green is averaging 22.3 points while making 51.5 percent of his 8.3 attempts from 3. Sustaining that high percentage is unrealistic, but during this streak, he is showcasing his range of scoring prowess.



    Green has a diverse scoring skill set with strengths rooted in his explosiveness, handle, and shooting touch. The Rockets utilize Green by using screens and handoffs to get him opportunities to shoot off the catch, and he can attack off the dribble. Going back to his lone G League season, Green has increasingly used change-of-pace maneuvers to generate room inside, where he can finish fluidly from awkward angles. When he’s scoring like he has as of late, it’s obvious why Houston drafted him second.

    Rookie production often wildly fluctuates, and Green, who turns 20 next month, will undoubtedly experience some more lows this season—especially if Houston general manager Rafael Stone doesn’t clean up the mess.

    On Saturday, assistant coach John Lucas called out the team at halftime for their effort, singling out Kevin Porter Jr. and Christian Wood. Porter reportedly threw a fit and then left the arena. Wood refused to play in the second half. Incidents like this are why the Cavaliers gave up Porter, and though Wood has turned his career around, he doesn’t have the best track record. Porter is replaceable. Wood is tradable. John Wall is still in limbo, looming over the franchise.

    No matter what moves are made to help the culture in Houston, building structure around Green is of the utmost importance.

    More specifically stating that the 1…2 count that Lucas worked with him on forces him to keep the ball up higher when he starts his shooting motion in order to get his release off quicker.

    The change to his shot has dramatically helped. Looks and feels much more stable without that dip now.

    The way Lucas helped fixed Greens shot
    Maybe we take a flyer on Fultz? A trade like Wood and KPJ for Mamba and Fultz

    Green has been excellent offensively last few games. Same player we saw in Summer League but now doing it against legit NBA players. Very encouraging among all the disfunction

    To be fair Green's shot was alot less broken than Fultz. I mean it was mostly subtle changes. Fultz needs alot of work.

    Love the poise Green's been playing with since his return. He's not just hitting jumpers, he's attacking the defense and being much better about picking the angles and utilizing change of speed. Early in the season he was barreling into defenders, which at best isn't going to get him free throws and at worst will get charges called against him. I'd like to see him flash more playmaking ability, but even he knows that's an area to work on in the future.

    It was a joke, please notice the winky guy.

    However, it 100% fits....willful ignorance is their creed.

    Back on Topic:

    Green's new mechanics are amazing, I have been most impressed with the improvements in Green and Christopher out of all of our young guys.

    Question for folks hating on Green so early cause he’s starting to put up numbers while the team is losing—How did y’all feel about Booker when the Suns were trash and how do you feel about him now?
