Danny Ainge had no real choice but to give Jeff Green his money

We’ve argued about Jeff Green’s contract for about two full months now.  We’ve debated his ability, his mental state, and his potential.  Numbers have been tossed around to defend our positions.  But none of that really matters, because the Celtics had virtually no choice but to give Green his four-year, $36+ million contract.
