It’s a good thing I kept all my dumbass opinions of Jaylen Brown going into the season to myself, because he has totally proven me wrong. Or right. You don’t actually know, because these were my own personal opinions, not the ones I type out for you guys on a nightly basis. Maybe I thought he was gonna be really good. Never thought of that, huh?
The Celtics have now won like 50 games in a row, thanks in part to Brown stepping up in the absence of pretty much every good player on their roster. The bulk of the credit goes to Brad Stevens, obviously, but there’s still some slivers of credit to go around to the players. And I’d say Brown gets 20% of those slivers. Way more than Marcus Smart!
