There’s a lot of doom and gloom surrounding the Celtics’ season, but the fact remains that they’re 14-10, there’s literally no way that they miss the playoffs (unless their team plane crashes and kills everyone on board [except Guerschon Yabusele whose voluminous booty will bear the brunt of his impact], in which case there’s no playoffs for anybody because they would cancel the season), so everyone just calm down. No need for a panic trade, no need to fire Brad Stevens, but maybe there is reason to be concerned over the play of Jaylen Brown.
He sucks this year. You know it, he knows it, everyone knows it. That’s just how it is right now. We all sort of knew that his good three-point shooting from last year was a mirage, but was it so much of a mirage that his norm is 25 percent? Did getting benched destroy him that badly? I’m not buying it. I don’t want to say this is the new normal, but maybe it’s slightly more normal than last season. Dudes as bad as he is at free-throws hardly ever can consistently shoot threes at a high level.
This is a season high, and even here he didn’t anything outside of the paint. And it’s the first vid I’ve made for him all season. And to think, I was getting tired of him as the playoffs wore on! If only I knew.
