Jeff Green: It Was Tough Joining C's

Jeff Green told Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports that it was difficult to be thrown into the mix of a championship team like the Boston Celtics, saying it was tough to enter that situation.

"They've been together for a number of years," Green said of the Celtics. "They've already won a championship, they've already have a system, they already have their chemistry and that bond on that team. It was tough to go into that situation." (via Yahoo! Sports)

Green, who was acquired in a trade deadline deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder that sent longtime C's center Kendrick Perkins to OKC in exchange for Green and Nenad Krstic, is an unrestricted free agent who is the center of debate among Celtics fans.

C's nation seems split about whether or not the team should bring him back, with some thinking he has potential to become a solid NBA player and others believing he has reached his potential.
