Green and Pence are vocal leaders on their team. Green doesn’t necessarily do the speeches before the game or in the huddle that Pence is known for, but he gets his teammates excited, and he brings endless energy. Both Green and Pence know how to fire up their teammates.

When they’re doing a postgame interview or even a pregame speech (as Reverend Pence is known to do), both players don’t like to talk about themselves. They’d rather talk about their teammates, the team as a whole, and the team’s success. They don’t like to focus on their own accomplishments.

Both of these players are the most passionate teammates, and they will do anything for their teammates. In addition, they’re both selfless, and they truly care about their teammates. They both believe in the power of a team and not the individual. Both of these players add to their impressive team chemistry with their selflessness and gratitude.

In addition to these contributions, both players are extremely effective on the court and on the field. Pence might go about his duties in an unorthodox way and not many people might’ve thought that Green would be as effective as he is now, but both players play their hardest every game and both see success due to their high level of effort.
