Gerald Green was rushing to the airport Wednesday after word came in that his six-year-old son Jeremiah with sick with an apparent allergic reaction. Gerald bolted to catch his flight, only having time to grab a backpack full of some of his essentials. He hopped on the next flight to Jeremiah’s hometown of Boston, where Green played for the Celtics last year. A few hours later he landed at Logan and pulled his phone out while the plane was taxiing on the tarmac. He just needed an update on Jeremiah, needing to know he was fine. Instead, it was another message. The Houston Rockets needed him. His return to the NBA was here. “As soon as I landed, that’s when I got the call,” Green said Thursday before his Rockets debut. “I was on the way to my son and I was thinking, ‘Maybe,’ but then I was like, ‘Wow.’”

Gerald Green. He was a good teammate (according to a Heat person) and became a better defender, but his shooting percentage declined significantly and an official to spoke to the Heat said the indication he got was that the Heat will move on if it can find a better option.

So what is a Miami Heat requirement? To D-up. I know if I want to be here the rest of my career, (forget) offense. I gotta D-up. That’s where my mind is at.”

John Wall: 'They thought I was done'

“I just wish I would have known up front and not have to beat around the bush to figure things out. That’s just my motivation there. They thought I was done. Basically, that’s how I feel. This is my opportunity to show them that I’m not done. But the most important thing for me is get the win. I don’t care how many numbers I have, it’s about getting the win. That’s the most important thing because if I get 40 and then we lose, the trade don’t look as bad from their aspect because they beat us that one game they did play us. So, my ultimate goal is to try to get a win for my team tomorrow.”
Well, that’s going to be hard to imagine once you hear his extended thoughts on playing the Wizards on Tuesday, which he shared with NBC Sports Washington’s Chris Miller. Now with the Rockets, Wall admitted facing the Wizards is personal after how his exit was handled, and that he is out for revenge. “Just seeing everybody that’s over there, a lot of people that’s on that side that probably didn’t believe I could come back to be the person I am. And probably some people that had a little say so into me being traded,” Wall told Miller. “I feel like it was a whole process and it wasn’t just something that happened overnight. I think this was in the works. That’s my motivation. Who wouldn’t want to beat the team that traded them and felt like I was done?”
“Most importantly, all I really wanted from the start of all of it was just to be told the truth. That’s the most important thing and what made it so hard for me to understand what was going on because I wasn’t told the truth. I understand it’s a business and things go on and people move on and you get traded, organizations in different ways. When I heard the rumors, I called and asked are these true or are these something not to worry about? From that day forward, all I heard was ‘no, those rumors aren’t true, don’t worry about it.’ In all reality, it was true,” Wall said.
