The Denver Nuggets power forward Jeff Green says NBA legend Kevin Garnett helped him become more vocal: “When I was with Boston, I didn’t talk much, I was very quiet. But now, I can’t stop talking, so I guess to a small extent, I’m like [Kevin Garnett]. I think being vocal is big … He used to tell me all the time, ‘You gotta speak up. You gotta talk. You gotta talk!’”
