    He is maybe the best athlete ever to wear a Pacers uniform. He is also a capable shooter. Other than that I don't see him as having any substance. He might have the worst Bball IQ and Bball instincts of any player to have ever put on a Pacers uniform.

    I like parts of his game, and other parts need work. I sort of view him as an older Lance... tons of potential, needs work. I think he could eventually be a good all-around player, he seems to have the athleticism, size and instincts on both sides of the ball, but up until now he's not been pressed to really learn a system, he just works free lance on offense... he just needs the work. A coaching staff like ours could probly work that out of him in due time. I think what the situation is, is he's behind a little bit defensively, and he lets it get to him mentally, which starts to impact his confidence shooting the ball.

    It'll be interesting to see if we keep him around as a project or just get rid of him. He might be too old of a dog to learn new tricks. But man his athleticism is something else... I hate to give that up. He seems like a really good guy, too.

    I like Gerald for what he is. He's a great athlete, who can also get hot and be a knock down 3-pt shooter as well. He excels on the boards, and weak-side defense. He's a guy that "finishes" plays as opposed to making plays (if that makes sense) That's what he is.

    To expect more out of him at this point is wrong imo. PPL complain about his "low bball IQ" but I think if you expect him to be a decision maker--you're asking for too much.

    Not true, Bill... If that was the case, the choices would've been 'yes', 'no' and 'maybe'

    I love Gerald in that, thanks to Peck and Hicks, every time I see him put up a shot, which has been a lot lately, I say to myself, 'don't mind if I do'... it had me rolling on the floor that first 20 point game... you should really try it. I now get nothing but enjoyment out of his game.

    He is a gifted athlete and is wearing the blue-and-gold, so an emphatic YES.

    His basketball decision making can be improved upon though, and that will take him dedicating
    his entire next offseason to being intensively coached, listening, and working hard at following
    instructions. It will take lots of hard work and commitment, but I believe he does have it
    within himself to become a better team player and a little less playground baller.

    I agree with some combination of these posts. I like Gerald. I think he brings athleticism to the team that the Pacers need. JMO, but he has a bad rap for making some dumb mistakes early in his time here. A lot of those type of mistakes will stop over time as he gets used to the Pacer game plans. Some players seem to need practice time and game time to process the things they need to do on the court. Some players, James Posey for example, pick up the nuances quickly.

    Gerald makes a nice backup wing. Glad he is a Pacer. I think he will get better going forward.

    I just think the difference between Orlando Johnson and Gerald Green are striking. Orlando plays within himself and within the offensive system. There is a huge difference in the way those two guys play. if you didn't know any better you would think that OJ is the 4th year vet and Green is the late second round draft pick

    Orlando is looking very nice. I really like the way he took it to kyle korver. too bad he's undersized, he'd be a heck of a player if he was a couple inches taller.
