26 pts off the bench tonight for New Jersey

We had him in training camp and didn't sign him, anyone know why?

Was Chaz behind this decision?

Oh well, at least we have Kapono and Morris smh

Same thing I was thinking. He even played for the LA- Defenders.

He had 26 last game too.

Looked terrible in preseason. I think I saw him get hit in the head by a few passes. No BBIQ.

Scoring 26 against the Raptors doesn't mean much, as I recall, someone once scored 81 on them.

Just one good game huh?

This is his FIFTH double digit scoring game since joining the Nets.

Because he freaking sucked in preseason and he hadn't been able to get back in the NBA in years. I don't think we made a mistske at all, still think Goudelock was the smarter choice.

He never showed much on the Defenders and he never was impressive. We always invited him back as fodder though.

Have you watched any Nets games recently?

Dude is a lot better than Glock.

If we had Green, we wouldn't even be looking to trade for Beasly.

We judged him incorrectly, that's the point. Not that we didn't have enough time to judge him

He was lighting it up in the D League.

Did you watch him play in the preseason or with the team? Just because he's doing well for a few games, Laker fans want to believe he'd be great here. He's floated around the league for a reason.

I've heard that recently he's gotten his act together and started playing better basketball.

He only played in one game with us. IIRC

Did anyone pay attention to our summer camp the past 3 years? Every time he saw the floor, he was flat out garbage. Nothing more. If we gave him a spot on the roster at the beginning of this season, or any of the past seasons we invited him to training camp, most of the board would not have liked the decision. Dude did not show that he had any business being on an NBA team during his summers with us.

Keep in mind he's scoring 26 for the NETS without Deron Williams or Blake Griffin folks. I'm pretty sure MWP could still pull that off. Green is not a savior.

Caracter was lighting up the D-League too, so what? He was unimpressive from an NBA standpoint. Look at his track record in the NBA instead of just his last few games.
