The Celtics swingman says those three legends are the guys he used to go on the driveway and pretend to be as a kid:
McGrady and Bryant are already in the Hall of Fame while Wade will be there soon. Brown picked some good guys to pattern his game after.
Before the 2019-20 season was suspended due COVID-19, Brown was averaging 20.4 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 2.2 assists for the Celtics in 50 games. The 23-year-old athletic specimen was having a career-year and turning into a star right in front of Boston's eyes.
Brown was shooting 49.0 percent from the field and 38.1 percent from beyond the arc en route to his 20.4 points per game average.
The Celtics were in third place in the Eastern Conference standings before Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19. Boston had a stellar record of 43-21. They were led by Kemba Walker, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and Gordon Hayward.
Brown signed a rookie-scale extension with the Celtics before the season started. The deal was worth $107 million over four years, with $12 million in incentives. Brown's new contract kicks in next season. He'll make $22.9 million in 2020-21.
Basketball fans are hoping the season can resume in the summer. Until then, we'll have to rely on The Last Dance and Youtube highlights.
