On the other hand, what if Green's basketball IQ is that limited ? Maybe he doesn't take those bad decisions on the court or misses easy buckets because he doesn't work hard, maybe it's because his BB IQ doesn't allow him to be better ?

How much of an influence do you think that BBall IQ has on "talent" ? And can you improve your bb iq ? IMO you definitely can by watching as many games as possible and learn why players succeed in different situations and which are good and bad shots etc...
