The Fall of Gerald Green Continues
I'm not sure you can call it a fall per se since he's never actually done anything outside of the dunk contest but Gerald Green was just waived by the Houston Rockets for Mike Harris. Even worse than being waived for some guy nobody outside of Houston has really ever head of but Harris was only signed to a 10 day contract. The Rockets dumped Gerald for a guy who might be gone in a couple of weeks. Hopefully Gerald is working on his resume. Personally, I think he's a great fit for the Knicks. Not just because he is a lot of talent, zero hoops IQ, and seems to have a high opinion of himself, but also because the Knicks actually could use his outside shooting. And Isiah could finally say that he brought a champion* to New York.
I always hoped for the best for Gerald but after a while you just had to realize that he simply didn't have the head to turn his world of potential into actual production. Would college have helped him? Probably not. He was heading to Oklahoma State so odds are that he probably just would have become a better dunking, dumber version of Tony Allen. Actually, that's not fair to Tony since he actually has a good work ethic and is more crazy than entitled.
