Rapaport picks Kemba and Jaylen as Celtic All-Stars

Post by Briggs » Mon Dec 30, 2019 2:53 pm

Last year Jaylen looked like he'd have a Jeff Green type career - high draft pick, super duper athletic and dazzled with flashes of brilliance but ultimately played too tentative and settled for too many mid range/long two's which led to him being a journeyman (but a fairly decent one). This year, Brown is shooting 39% on 5 3s a game, attacking the rim more and settling for less long twos. He's also been excellent defensively, as he always has. He also seems like a smart, well spoken kid, which makes him easy to root for.

Jaylen is definitely the more efficient player. Better at D and takes more high % shots. No surprise that Brown is a rising star, as his IQ and athleticism are an unparalleled combination.

The most competitive teams usually have a "big 3". I'm thinking Brown, Tatum, Walker, Haywood, Smart, Theis, and Kanter with Coach Stevens sounds pretty formidable. The rookies are already making contributions and should be ready for the play offs.

Ainge can be kind of a jerk, but it's sometimes nice to have a jerk on your side. He's done a nice job constructing this team. Perhaps his best move was bringing in Stevens.

Tatum is and always has been slightly overrated. Good player, but not amazing, yet.

I say all three should be all stars. The Eastern Conference isn't that strong.
