Will Jaylen Brown earn his first All NBA selection this season?


Making All-NBA may come down to Brown at SG or SF

Here’s the short answer: It depends on what position he plays. 

If Jaylen Brown is considered a forward then it’s unlikely (but not impossible) that Brown could be awarded all-NBA status at year end. The forward position is absolutely stacked. Jaylen would be competing not only against Jayson Tatum who was third team all NBA last season but against Giannis, Lebron James, Kawhi Leonard, Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis, Jimmy Butler and others for one of 6 spots. 

If Jaylen is considered a guard (which is the position he played last night on his way to 33 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists) then his competition is not nearly as formidable  Steph Curry will get one of the six spots on reputation alone. Doncic will get one (and could also win his first of many MVP’s), and so will Bradley Beal who in my opinion is playing the shooting guard position as well as anybody has since Kobe. Let’s not forget a guy named Damian Lillard.  After that it’s wide open  

Jaylen has tightened up his handles. His passing game is finally coming around  He shoots a high percentage  He will most likely average around 25 PPG. Let’s forget that Brown is also becoming a fantastic defender.

Jaylen Brown ranks 5th on my NBA list of guards behind the aforementioned:

1. Luka Doncic 

2. Bradley Beal

3. Steph Curry (who might end up higher if he’s back to his old self)

4. Damian Lillard

5. Jaylen Brown

There will be a lot of Trey Young and Ja Morant fans out there who are wondering how I can leave them out since James Harden will most likely be the 6th choice. Trey Young & Ja Morant need to be able to bring their teams into the playoffs as well as improve their skills significantly on the defensive end. Morant will soon be a regular all-NBA guard so for him it’s not a question of if, but when. 

However if Jaylen Brown continues on his current trajectory of excellence he will pass Ben Simmons this season for sure. Then it becomes a question as to how high up the NBA guard ladder he can climb.

Did the Celtics Kevin McHale really have a wingspan of 8-feet?

One of those sources is Wikipedia, as seen below: Kevin McHale American basketball player DescriptionKevin Edward McHale is an American retired basketball player who played his entire professional career for the Boston Celtics. He is a Basketball Hall of Fame inductee, and is regarded as one of the best power forwards of all time. He was named to the NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time Team.

Nik Stauskas adds "shooting with size" voiced by Brad Stevens

 As a 6'6" shooting guard, 28-year-old Nik Stauskas adds that shooting with size sorely needed by the Boston Celtics. Drafted 8th-overall by the Sacramento Kings in 2014, Stauskas has bounced around to various teams since then. Nik Stauskas' deal with the Boston Celtics includes non-guaranteed salary for the second season in 2022-23, a source tells @celticsblog . — Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) March 4, 2022 Nik has never averaged more than 9.5 points per game in the NBA, but Boston is most likely counting on his production for Grand Rapids in the G League as the incentive to sign him. In 17 games thus far, he has averaged 24.7 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 4.8 APG - while shooting 50% on field goals and 45% on treys. Nik Stauskas is signing a two-year deal with the Boston Celtics, his agents Mark Bartelstein and Andy Shiffman of @PrioritySports tell ESPN. Stauskas had an historic week, scoring 100 points on 57 and 43 point performances in back-to-back games for Grand Rapids. — Adrian Wo
