SEE YOU LATER, JEFF GREEN

14 Jan

They may set up for a three, but they’ll take the two to tie it. Gerald Wallace will inbound, he got Jeff Green, Kelly Olynyk, Avery Bradley, and the dangerous Jordan Crawford. They’ll try to hang on and win…………… This is Green…. For the win!! HE DID IT!!!!! Jeff Green wins again for Boston on a corner threeeee!!!!!! OH MY!!

Yep, the best moment in Jeff Green’s career (menurut saya). Kalian pasti tahu, pada November 2013 lalu Jeff Green cold-bloodedly nails a corner 3 in front of LeBron with 00.6 seconds remaining for the win! Well those are the good times, really good times, walaupun konsistensi Jeff Green masih sangat menjadi kendala utama musim itu, namun pertandingan tidak mungkin bisa kita lupakan begitu saja. That was fcking awesome.

Tapi yeah… Seperti yang kalian sudah dengar, resmi sudah, Jeff Green akhirnya menyusul Tony Allen dan best friend-nya Courtney Lee ke Memphis Grizzlies lewat 3-team trade yang akhirnya official pagi tadi (13/1 WIB).

Here are the details :

  • Boston Celtics send forward Jeff Green to Memphis Grizzlies
  • Memphis Grizzlies send forward Tayshaun Prince (expiring contracts), future first-round pick to Boston Celtics; forward Quincy Pondexter, 2015 second-round pick to New Orleans to New Orleans Pelicans
  • New Orleans Pelicans send Point Guard Russ Smith, 2014 second-round pick, & TPE to Memphis Grizzlies; G/F Austin Rivers to Boston Celtics

Sebenarnya deal ini sudah disetujui pada sabtu pagi (waktu indonesia barat) lalu, dimana saat itu Celtics akan melawan Roy Hibbert’s Indiana Pacers dan Jeff Green dinyatakan active, tetapi sayangnya Jeff Green sudah meninggalkan lapangan sejak sebelum pertandingan dimulai.

🙂

Menurut Danny Ainge, ketidakpastian akan masa depan Jeff Green dengan tim, serta value-nya pada trade market yang akhirnya menyebabkan 3-team deal ini terjadi.

“Any time you lose your leading scorer, there’s going to be challenges that come with that,” Ainge said. “Losing him three weeks after losing your multiple-time All-Star point guard, there’s going to be challenges that come with that.”

Well, memang semenjak Rondo di-trade ke Mavericks lalu, penyakit kambuhan Uncle Jeff yang namanya konsistensi mulai kambuh lagi, shot – shotnya mulai miss lebih banyak dari biasanya, jalan – jalan dan males – malesan saat defense, menyalahkan dirinya sendiri saat kekalahan buruk tim, “it starts with me” katanya, dan pertandingan terkahirnya bersama Celtics dimana saat itu Celtics memenagkan pertandingan atas Brooklyn Nets, dia hanya mencetak 8 poin dari 36% shooting (4-11 FG) terlepas dari 33 menit ia bermain. Padahal pada awal – awal musim dia bener – bener solid dan kayaknya bakal bisa ndusel kepilih All-Star. Nyatanya setelah Rondo pergi performanya di lapangan makin meredup.

Just so you know

But still… I think you would not – and should not – forget what he has done with the Celtics, terutama semua highlights menakjubkan mulau dari dunk – dunk membelalakkan mata, posterization, 40+points performance, dan lain-lain sebagainya, terutama karena dia adalah our best small forward post-Paul Pierce era.

So… Thank you Uncle Jeff Green! Good Luck in Memphis!

Oiya, hampir lupa. Earlier, Brandan Wright juga di-trade ke Phoenix Suns untuk future conditional Minnesota first-round pick dan TPE, singkat sih karirnya di Boston, jadi jangan harap ada tribute video pas kembalinya ke Boston yak.

Updates : Austin Rivers kata-katanya bakal dikirim Ainge menuju Clippers untuk bermain bersama ayahnya Doc Rivers, deal is being negotiated..

Speaking about draft picks………….

THAT’S HOW YOU REBUILD!!!

NOT ONE, NOT TWO, NOT THREE, THOUSANDS OF DRAFT PICK$$$$$$$$$$$$!!!!!!!
