20-second timeout: Seattle's Jeff Green

Mike Baldwin Published: February 11, 2008
Is the NBA everything you hoped it would be?

Yeah. Everything and more. Playing here is a dream. You work hard to get to this point. Now that you're here, you've got to make the most of it. It's a blessing just to be here.

What would you like to see happen in the next three months?

Our team wins a lot more games. It's frustrating. Last year, I was in the Final Four. Losing is frustrating. You never want to lose. We've been struggling, but I think things will turn around. We will get better. It's just a matter of time.

What's you're favorite NBA city and which city are you looking forward to visiting?

Miami. That was my first time there. The weather was amazing. I'm looking forward to going to San Antonio. I'd never been to Texas until we went to Dallas. I'm looking forward to going to Boston. I have family there.

Do you miss playing at Georgetown?

College is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. You miss it, but it's time to move on. I talk to people there almost every day. There were some great memories. They're in the top 10. They're playing well.
