The Boston Celtics are one of the hottest teams in the league right now. So much so, that they have the likes of two-time Superbowl champion Peyton Manning randomly dropping by during practice to provide some valuable advice on why reviewing game film is such an important aspect in competitive sports.

Celtics guard Jaylen Brown could not help but sing the praises of the former first overall pick in the NFL Draft, and the 22-year-old appeared to have gotten the message loud and clear.

“(Manning) dedicated himself to the game,” Brown said, via Jay King of The Athletic. “He wasn’t the most skilled, he wasn’t the fastest. But he prepared very well and that took him to another level I think. He just spent a lot of time on it. He gave his whole life to it. Everything was around that. So that stood out to me.”

Celtics head coach Brad Stevens, who happens to be close friends with Manning, shared how the future Hall of Famer helped his team get a better appreciation of the importance of studying film.

“He’s one of the better film watchers I’ve ever been around,” Stevens said. “He was probably on us last night for a couple of our miscues, but it was great to have him around. We did some back and forth questions-wise, but we didn’t want to put him on the spot. It was good to see him. I’ve known him since I’ve been in Indy. He’s been a good friend of mine. It’s pretty special to get the opportunity to know Peyton when I lived in Indy and now Brady in New England. It’s about as good as it gets.”

Stevens is one of the best coaches in the league today, so it is not at all surprising that he has instilled this type of mentality to his team. With this type of approach to the game, the sky is definitely the limit for this very promising Celtics squad.
