It turns out, Green still remembers that talk, and plans on continuing to play that way.
Jeff Green: "I'm going to continue to heed the words of Kevin Garnett - be aggressive, be an asshole. Yes, I said asshole."

I like how Green clarifies: "Yes, I said asshole".
Listen, we all know that Green is an incredibly nice guy off the court. And that's awesome. But he absolutely needed more "a-hole" in his game, and whether it was KG's talk or something else, he certainly became a better, more aggressive player as last season winded down.
Now this season is about becoming more of a consistent asshole. And if he can do that, he'll be well on his way to an All-Star caliber season.
P.S. Just as if it wasn't crystal clear already, Green's light hearted persona off the court ain't changing.
