Amazingly, Gerald Green has restarted his career in the NBA. The Celtics' former first-round draft pick is playing with the Pacers and, wouldn't you know it, he's still dunking.
Green flashed the one skill that always made Boston fans say "wow" on Friday night, dunking over the Bulls on an alley-oop from David West. Green has had a solid preseason for the Pacers, averaging 12.3 points per game while shooting 46.8 percent from the field in 26.7 minutes per game.
Green showed flashes of what once made him a top-20 pick out of high
school when he played with the Nets last season. He averaged 12.9 points
per game and shot 48.1 percent from the field in 31 games. The 26-year-old former Celtic was out of the NBA from 2009 until 2012, playing in Russia, China and the NBA's D-League.
Green's best full season in the NBA came in 2006-2007, when he averaged 10.4 points per game. He also won the slam dunk contest that year. What Green may be most well-known for is being part of the trade that sent Kevin Garnett — and an NBA championship — to Boston.
