In an interview on former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Damaris Lewis' blog Heels to Hoops , Jeff Green said he feels better physically now than before the heart surgery that kept him from playing the entire 2011-12 NBA season (h/t Red's Army ).
"I feel awesome," said Green. "I actually feel a lot better than I did prior to the surgery. It was a blessing, and I'm doing better now."
Green has reportedly agreed to a four-year, $36 million deal with the Celtics, although the contract remains unsigned. Still, he didn't appear concerned about the delay when he made this statement: "To all the Boston fans that read this, banner 18 is on the way."
Green reiterated that his No. 1 goal this season is to win a title. "I know that's everybody's goal, but it's mine," he said. "I love individual stuff, but I'm more of a team guy. You get recognized more when your team wins, so that's my No. 1 goal."
