Jeff Green bribes a Heat fan to trash his gear

GreenHeatEarlier this week Jeff Green spoke to hundreds of young fans at the Glen Urquhart School in Beverly. He had a brief encounter with an 8-year old Heat fan:

For Beverly resident Nathan Barry, it was an offer he couldn’t refuse: An autographed game-worn sneaker from Boston Celtic Jeff Green, in exchange for all of his Miami Heat gear — starting with the cap he was currently wearing.

It was a tempting trade for the youngster, who stood face-to-kneecap with his towering 6-foot-9, 235-pound basketball hero.

“I have to make sure you get rid of this hat,” said Green, going over the finer points of the swap. “And you’re going to have to mail all your Miami stuff back to me. I will then dispose of it. Is it a deal?”

It was a no-brain decision for Barry, a third grader at the Centerville School. The tyke even shook on the deal, swearing off all of his Heat regalia for the entire season, before hurling his red cap into the trash can.

“I think it was pretty awesome,” said Barry, a native of Miami. “I can always buy another hat next year.”

Thanks Nate for reinforcing the theory fact that Miami Heat fans have backbones of jelly.

Reminds me of a certain playoff game…

    Jeff Green will be the first player ever to win Most-improved and MVP in the same season

    • Curt Hays

      If he wins MVP this year, that’d basically qualify him for most-improved by definition.

    • Ryan

      most improved I could def see and I also think half a dozen all star appearances in the future, but not MVP. I know he missed a season, but he is also 27, and most MVPs I can think off, already had a couple all star seasons under their belt, but more importantly, they were playing at or near an all star level by the 1st or 2nd year in the NBA. Don’t get me wrong, my comments here and at WEEI have always stated that Jeff Green will be an all-star, and despite the fact that I see big things from him, I don’t see an MVP award in the future, never mind next season(i assume you are referring to next season). I know he had 3 years in college, and then played on a team with Kevin Durant and Westbrook, along with the lost season, but it’s also really hard to win MVP on a team that will prob be right around .500, depending on when Rondo gets back. He showed confidence last year (to go along with his obvious physical gifts) and a readiness to be a # 1 or 2 option, but there is so much talent in the league right now, that I can’t even envision him cracking the top ten…..but being an all star next year and several years after, would be quite an accomplishment, especially when you look at all the talented players that get “snubbed” each year. Not that I think Rondo will, but I would put him 1st before Jeff Green as far as chances to win the MVP, as he has shown to be a top 3 impact player in the playoffs the 2 seasons prior to last year when he didn’t play. But I like the positive thinking, and he may very well get Most Improved,
