Ainge: Expectations for Green Aren’t Right

As it goes, one day fans are left in awe of (Jeff) Green’s jaw-dropping finesse. The next several, they’re just scratching their heads wondering if that other performance really happened.

“I understand it because I think expectations aren’t right,” Ainge said of fans’ frustrations with Green, before defending his player’s four-year, $36 million contract that expires in 2016. “Well, $9 million, that’s half of a max contract. Jeff has given us 16 or 17 points a game on a very efficient overall year he’s having. I think that’s what people should expect. Jeff’s not gonna be the guy that’s gonna carry us every single night, and we don’t have that guy that does that, other than Rondo when he gets back to being 100 percent.”
