At the end of February, Gerald Green was a D-Leaguer, star of the L.A. Defenders. By the end of March, NBA.com had ranked his exploits among the best dunks (first), steals (second) and blocks (sixth) for the month. Three other Nets -- Deron Williams in dunks, Kris Humphries in blocks and Jordan Farmar in plays -- made the monthly honor roll as well.
Of course, Green's monster dunk against the Rockets was the dunk of the month (and likely dunk of the year). But he also made the highlight reels for his steal and dunk against the Clippers and his block against the Hornets. Williams' one-handed surprise slam against the Cavaliers ranked ninth among dunks. His perfect bounce pass to Farmar for the game winner vs. the Clippers was chosen the sixth best play of the month. Hump's block of Blake Griffin ranked third in March.
