Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Jeff Green appeared at Holland Elementary School in Dorchester yesterday as part of a community service day by the C’s. Dionte, KrisJo & others ran a skills clinic for the youngsters. Jeff told members of the media, including ESPN Boston’s Chris Forsberg, that he’s “fully recovered, part of the team, cleared for everything..”
Forsberg writes: Green knows he’ll be peppered with health questions, but having not played an NBA game in nearly 16 months, it’s clear his focus now is on what lies ahead. Which is why when he’s asked about the toughest hurdle in getting back on the floor, he smiles and declares, “Nothing.”
To be certain, there is rust to shake.
“Getting in a groove, getting in a rhythm — but it’ll come,” said Green. “We still have two months until the beginning of the regular season. That stuff will come. I’ve really been able to do everything — contact, my movements, my shot is there, my lift is there. Everything is coming along.”
I’m personally very excited to see what Jeff Green will bring to the table this year. I can bet he’s more than tired of all the talk surrounding his contract & injury concerns and just wants to play ball.
