The understudy and the rock: Could Jaylen Brown replace Avery Bradley? Is Aron Baynes the next Amir Johnson?

Boston’s new Big Three of Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward, and Al Horford are shoe-ins for the starting five, but who plays with them at tip-off? Juggling his starting lineup is nothing new to Brad Stevens. Due to injury, matchups, or just plain ol’ tinkering, the Celtics had 14 different starting fives last season. Stevens’ most used combination—Isaiah Thomas, Avery Bradley, Jae Crowder, Al Horford, and Amir Johnson—only started 36 games together. With Bradley and Johnson in Detroit and Philadelphia respectively and Thomas and Crowder in Cleveland, Brad Stevens will have to start...

What can the Celtics expect from Jaylen Brown?

What can the Celtics expect from Jaylen Brown?

Jaylen Brown has shown flashes of brilliance. The Celtics will need more this year. Less than a week after losing to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals, Celtics rookie Jaylen Brown declared his desire to play with Boston’s Summer League team. The sting of defeat, mixed with his natural inclination toward continual improvement, was sufficient enough for Brown to want to put in extra hours, despite a long playoff run and the pedigree of having been a top-three draft pick. A number of more playful offseason narratives dwarfed Brown’s performance in Summer League. His...

Where are they now?: 2016-17 Celtics edition

Outlining where the departed members of the Celtics roster last season are heading into the new year. After the Celtics made it to the eastern conference finals for the first time since 2012 last season, Danny Ainge decided to make a few changes to the roster. A few changes is certainly the understatement of the century, because Boston is only returning four players from last year’s team. Marcus Smart, Jaylen Brown, Al Horford, and Terry Rozier are the remaining survivors barring any more moves. With the fierce amount of change the Celtics roster has undergone, it’s easy to misplace...

Shifting risk in the Celtics’ roster building process

Shifting risk in the Celtics’ roster building process

There’s always going to be risk. In a best case scenario, Kyrie Irving will turn into an MVP candidate, Gordon Hayward will be a perfect complimentary superstar, Al Horford will be the glue that keeps everything together, and both Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum will be ready faster than anyone expected. The team will have perfect health and zoom past a struggling Cleveland Cavs team on their way to the Finals. They upset the Warriors and shock the world by adding their 18th banner. Sounds great to me, and if I close my eyes and allow myself to daydream, I can float in that suspended...

Jaylen Brown produced a rap song (for motivation)

Jaylen Brown produced a rap song (for motivation)

Our own Gen X Renaissance Man Jaylen Brown has a lot of potential and promise on the basketball court. He’s also an interesting and many layered individual off of it. So it only makes sense that he would use a unique technique to get himself ready for games. Per SportTechie Brown had tested a bevy of other methods in the past in an attempt to alleviate his pregame jitters, but this time, the stage — the biggest of his career — necessitated an imaginative answer. He finally settled on an unorthodox solution — to create a three-minute, 31-second rap song that he rapped, produced and...

The Celtics still have several future draft picks

The Celtics still have several future draft picks

We’ll remember you fondly Nets picks. For years now, we’ve talked about the Nets picks like they were prized works of art. They represented an investment and they were fun to look at. Of course, now they are all gone. They have been cashed in and converted to either tangible talent or future draft considerations. To recap, they turned into the following: James Young Jaylen Brown Traded for Jayson Tatum and future pick Traded in package for Kyrie Irving That’s a great haul and we’ll remember the Nets picks fondly, but the war-chest is far from empty. Let’s take a quick look at...

Green on green championship: Kyrie Irving vs Jaylen Brown

Green on green championship: Kyrie Irving vs Jaylen Brown

Kyrie Irving and Jaylen Brown face off in the final round of the Celtics one-on-one tournament. The Green on Green tournament has reached the final round. 8th seeded Jaylen Brown takes on 3rd seeded Kyrie Irving in what should be a matchup to be remembered for decades (okay, maybe not). Brown made it through a number of tough competitors to make it to the championship round. He took out rookie Guerschon Yabusele, the cinderella story in Daniel Theis, and Marcus Smart as well, who I thought would actually win the whole thing. Irving was a late addition due to the blockbuster trade in late...

Green-on-green semifinals: Smart vs. Brown

Green-on-green semifinals: Smart vs. Brown

Smart vs. Brown should be an extremely entertaining and tight contest to see who moves on to the finals. Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart, two of the most physical players on the Celtics’ roster, square off in what should be a heated one-on-one matchup. Brown has the size advantage, but I don’t see that mattering against Smart’s physicality. However, Smart won’t be able to dominate Brown like he might other players. Will Brown make it to the final round, or will Smart take on the winner of Kyrie Irving vs Jayson Tatum?

Trade stalemate update: Cavs asking a lot, Celtics drawing line in the sand

Trade stalemate update: Cavs asking a lot, Celtics drawing line in the sand

The big loser here is Isaiah Thomas. I hate everything about this drawn out process but here we are. The Cavs are requesting additional compensation after their doctors got a look at Isaiah Thomas’ hip. So what do they want and what are the Celtics willing to give them? Rumors are starting to trickle out. Woj went on SportsCenter and reported that the Cavs are going to “inquire about” Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, but he immediately (and correctly) laughed that off. Watch the video yourself and you’ll see that he thinks that they’ll be seeking a 1st round pick. The Celtics, as...
