Gerald Green: The future is bright for him and if not, he’s had a hell of a career. He’s a Hall of Fame guy and you know what, I’m pretty sure a lot of guys respected the career that he’s had. I don’t think it’s over for him. I don’t think it’s that, he got to turn a situation that he didn’t want into one that he’s gonna always cherish. So I have nothing but good things to say about CP, he’s always been a cool guy to me and I wish him nothing but the best at OKC.
Earlier today, the Rockets formally announced that you had re-signed for another season. What exactly does that mean to you, knowing this is going to be your 13th season, and you’re 33 years old? Gerald Green: Man, I’m so thankful for this organization! Not only thankful for the organization but thankful for the city for embracing me throughout all these years. A lot of people can’t even go back home and get that type of love that they get even in their hometown, so for me to get the type of love in my own city, and the organization wanting me back, means a lot to me.
These workouts are long and sweaty. We don’t usually see NBA players change a decade-plus in, but is there any one specific thing you want to work on this offseason? Any goal or target for you heading into next season? Gerald Green: Really, man, I just want to be a more efficient shooter. Just being able to get a bucket off one or two dribbles, being able to knock down wide-open shots no matter what the situation is. Off transition, off open shots, off double team kick-outs, off catch and shoot, off handoffs, whatever it is … corner 3. Every time I play I just want to be able to knock down an open shot, so just be more consistent and knock down more contesting shots because I’m always shooting those. I just want to be more consistent.
What about on the other side of the ball? Gerald Green: I want to be a better rebounder, so I’ve obviously just been working on different little things and different little techniques trying to get my lower body stronger, just trying to work on all aspects of my game. Obviously, defensively, I feel like last year, didn’t really necessarily say I took a step back, but I wasn’t the best. I know I could’ve done more defensive-wise. I feel like I’ve gotten better as a defensive player since I got to the Rockets guaranteed, but I know I can do more, and I will do more this year.
