Some People's Kids: Well that didn't last long

Well that didn't last long

8 months ago, he was a major part in the biggest trade in the Wolves history, then about 3 weeks ago, he was competing in the NBA dunk contest with baked goods, but as of yesterday Gerald Green is no longer in the NBA.

The Rockets also waived guard/forward Gerald Green, who was acquired by Houston via trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves on Feb. 21, 2008.

It's weird to see someone make such a large transition in such a short period of time. If the kid from Houston can not make it with his hometown team, you wonder who he can make it with. From what I've read on Green,the general feeling is that he is uber talented, but lacks the work ethic to succeed at this level. If that is the case, he needs to take this opportunity to do some self evaluation and work on his game.

He would probably benefit from being on a roster with a load of veterans, possibly the Celtics or the Rockets, wait they just waived him. You can't really blame them, after losing Yao they needed to add some size. You wonder if he could end up back in Boston, they did seem to like the kid. I doubt this is the last we've heard of the kid from Houston.
