He's already been a 15-point scorer his whole career..... At the least he's a top10 SF already.
Unfortunately, Pierce hinders his growth but luckily staying on the bench teaches consistency, which he has been sorely lacking this year.
Being a Thunder fan a few years back I could see talent in this fella, and until he shows me otherwise, I see a guaranteed Allstar SF in Jeff. He can be a 20ppg guy plus so much more... 6apg is reasonable.
What do you even base this on?
Green has averaged < 17PPG over his first 6 or so years in the league. As a general rule players typically get better through the first few seasons of their career. Green has not - he's stayed at the same level.
Why do you belive that he will remain exactly the same player for 6 years, and then suddenly have a talent explosion in the 7th year? Makes no sense.
Secondly, where on earth do you get 6 assists per game? Pierce and Iggy are two of the best passing SF's in the league and they don't even average 6 per game. Green has never averaged more than what, 2 assists per game in a season? You think his numbers will jus randomly triple?
He's a top 10 SF in efficient playing.
How is his play efficient? He shoots something like 42% from the field and 35% from three. That is not efficient in the least. He records barely any assists, he doesn't get many rebounds. Where's the efficiency???!?!?
Green is not putting up exactly the same stats as he did in OKC. That is silly. He will in time, but he is not right now.
2008: 16.5pts/ 6.7 rbs./ 2 ass/ 1 stl/ .6 blks (45%/79%)
2009: 15.1 pts./ 6 rbs./ 1.6 ass/ 1.3 stls/ .9 blk (45%/74%)
2010: 15.2 pts/ 5.6 rbs/ 1.8 ass/ .8 stls/ .4 blk (44%/82%)
I think he can score 20 per night as a starter and give us close to 7 rebounds, 2 assists, at least 1 steal, and 1 block.
His numbers are pretty close to those actually per minute.
I think 17 points, 6 rebounds and 2.5 assists is closer to his ceiling to be honest.
