Bigger Than Ball Vol. 7: Jalen Green

The mantra around California basketball in recent years has been that it’s all flash, no fire. That the players aren’t “tough enough”. When it comes to Fresno native Jalen Green, those words are never used. Jalen was recently named ESPN’s Class of 2020 #2 overall player. An absolute terror in transition, the 6’5’’ shooting guard from San Joaquin Memorial High School is an athletic force. Green not only has good body control, but a tight handle on the ball and array of moves to compliment his game. Green brought home a gold medal with the USA U16 National Team. We had a chance to catch up with Jalen at Future All American Camp.

MP—What NBA player do you model your game after

JALEN GREEN—-I model my game after Kevin Durant.

 

MP—–Best part of your game?

JG-Probably attacking, getting to the cup.

 

MP—What part needs the most improvement?

JG—I’d say shooting, defense, my offense in the half court things like that.

 

MP—Favorite Athletic Achievement to date

JG—-On the court? *Laughs* probably hitting a between the legs something like that.

 

MP—-What motivates you when you play?

JG—–Always having a chip on my shoulder. I WANT to get buckets, I want to be the best player out here.

 

MP—-What was it like playing for team USA

JG—-

It was great experience, I can tell you that. All the people that are out there, all the top players in the country playing against them competing for a spot. It’s fun.

 

MP—-Biggest pregame ritual

JG—-I like to eat junk food. *Laughs*. Skittles or Starbursts or something.

 

MP–Favorite twitter or Instagram follow

JG—-Probably Ball is Life, they always have videos up there.

 

MP—Of you?

JG—*Laughs* Sometimes.

 

MP–Toughest matchup you’ve had

JG—Either Nico (Mannion) or Josh Green, or Jalen Suggs. They’re always aggressive, they take no plays off. It’s always a battle.

 

MP–If you didn’t/couldn’t play basketball, what sport play

JG–Football. I’d be a receiver for sure.

 

MP–What’s the thing you look to prove the most when out on the court?

JG–That being from Cali doesn’t matter.

(A little proof from earlier today he was not kidding)

 

MP—One word to describe you as a basketball player.

JG—BUCKET.

 

The future is bright for the young gunner from California, and he is hungry to bring the bark back to the West.
