There is a constant push for everyone to "Go Green" in this day and age and rightfully so. The health and longevity of our world depends on our very ability to do just that.
The Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association agree with that notion. They have taken the concept to a whole new level. They just went Green all over again.
In case you have not heard by now, Boston traded Kendrick Perkins along with Nate Robinson to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Nenad Krstic and Jeff Green. Green is the key player the Celtics received in the deal. He is one of the NBA's better prospects and there is a lot to look forward to with him as a member of the Boston Celtics.
The Celtics drafted Jeff Green fifth overall in the 2007 NBA draft. They proceeded to immediately trade Green along with Delonte West and Wally Szczerbiak to the Sonics (now the Thunder) for Ray Allen.
One NBA championship later, the Celtics have managed to not only a return of Jeff Green to the C's but also the second coming of Delonte West. Each of these players followed their own path back to Beantown and have different reasons to be going green in 2011.
Green was simply re-traded, this time back to Boston as stated previously. Delonte West's road back to the Green was a little more rocky.
West spent half the year in Seattle once he was traded to the Sonics in 2007 only to be traded to Cleveland that same year. He played for two and a half seasons as a Cavalier before being picked up by Boston after he opted for free agency post the 2010 season.
