Even though he has been with the Houston Rockets for a very short time, shooting guard and Houston native Gerald Green is trying very hard to make an impact both on and off the court. According to a post today on Twitter by Bleacher Report, Green took to his official Instagram account and went live to talk about Hurricane Harvey and its lingering effects on people to this day.
“Harvey is back the same, right? Everybody thinking it's back the same, I'm gonna show ya'll something that it's not,” Green said while walking through a house covered in mold. “This is not the same. This is what Houstonians are going throught right now.”

You're a very good man with a big heart, Mr. Green. Back in the summer when he was still a free agent, Green also took to Instagram to ask for help from other people to assist those in need while driving around in his truck during the thick of Hurricane Harvey.
In his last six games, Green has averaged 20.2 points and 3.0 rebounds per game off the bench in his brief stint with the Rockets. He has since made 53.2 percent of his shots following his scoreless debut against the Boston Celtics and 51.8 percent of his three-pointers in those six games.
Via an article written by Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle:
“Every day I’m feeling better. I felt really good as far as my wind,” Green said after the Rockets' win over the Chicago Bulls. “I wasn’t as tired as I would normally be. My conditioning is picking up pretty quick. I’m not where I need to be, but it’s getting there. I give myself another week or two, I think I should be right there.”
Green and the Rockets, who have the day off today, will host the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night at Toyota Center.
