"I kept hearing 'He's only a scorer, he wasn't a point guard,' " said Green of his experience a year ago. "In my head I was saying I'm going to go out here and show everybody I can facilitate, I'm not just a scorer. Honestly, that hurt me more than anything. Instead of just being myself. If you don't like me for who I am, and I'm a scoring point guard, then maybe I don't belong. But there's a lot of scoring point guards (in the NBA). I think I can be one as well."
"We kept our poise this time," Green said. "We weren't arguing, we weren't rattled. We just kept it going."
