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.
“The next step for Jeff and I think Jeff would be the first to tell you this, is he has a great opportunity to do the things that he did [last season], even more consistently and with more opportunity,” Stevens told CSNNE.com. “But with that comes a great deal of responsibility and a great deal of attention.”
Those disappearing acts fans have seen in the past from Green will have to do just that … disappear.
“Everyday has to be a great day [for Green],” said Stevens, adding, “It has to be a day where you are making an inch of progress. And then the next day, an inch more and the next day an inch more, and not going back and fourth. From what I have seen of Jeff and from what I have heard of Jeff, he’s really bought into that and he’s really excited about that.”
Brad Stevens is channeling Peter Parker’s Uncle Ben for some motivation. The message to Jeff Green is simple; play aggressive and play smart.
He’s 27 years old, completely healthy and in the prime of his career. He’s no longer in the shadows of two future HOFers.
The time is now for Jeff Green.
I was one of his biggest critics. But I saw enough in his game last season to believe he can become a top dog.
If not, we’re really screwed.
