You know give better you know ultimately -- -- -- -- Is the conversation with Kevin with you Jeff as intense as what we see with Kevin out there on that on the basketball court. Almost that ultimately. There's spoken to terminate his -- -- -- game you know he felt when he competition teammate. And you know what we eat something and you look at the so you know. That you believe me it is you know losing -- lives -- motivation to one of the person that you want to be. And I don't do that -- over the Kevin Garnett. -- -- UK -- blitzes you know the -- will -- take it Sharpton. Do we. A little -- there. Did you when he first came over from Oklahoma City was okay what's the fit what house are gonna look in the new missed last year which are wanna get too little bit but. You know have you kind of understood that fit now that that role in what your role is on this team. He has multiple. Legal. You know it. Just move with the transition from start in a model career and -- Oklahoma. Flashy out of in the coming here out there. -- make sure that you come off the bench the -- Paul Pierce and hopefully limited as well knowing the role -- biblical -- now. -- -- -- -- Or more there. Not concede would not want my teammates respect -- you know. It it's been slow slow motion thing but you know they were critical call. We're talking to Jeff Green you talk about the transition Jeffords started to bench play -- had to -- can be had to a change at all.

Jeff sometimes unfortunately is society we kind of -- appreciate what we have until you we face a tragedy or a scare in life few had that's your last year with.
