JaMychal Green has got to be one of the more anonymous “good” players in the league. He’s a totally acceptable starter-quality power forward. He can dunk, he can rebound, and he added a three-point shot a few years ago that has worked out nicely for him. Like a black Ersan Ilyasova without the charge-drawing ability. I would take a black Ersan Ilyasova on my team any day of the week, and twice on weekends, so why does no one care about this dude?
Just saying, if his name was something like Giamikalis Greenopolous people would be freaking out all the time about him. Or if it was Jamik Grenic. A Euro with his player profile would be widely desired, but he’s just a really generic-looking black power forward. Maybe if he had a fro? I think a fro would do a lot to raise his national profile.
He also plays in Memphis, which is one of the more forgotten franchises currently. He even fits the “Grit ‘N Grind” thing perfectly, he replaces Zach Randolph really nicely. Man, all these reasons to like him and this video is gonna get like 100 views, max.
