I have watched this clip at least 1000 times since last night. I can’t look away. The pump fake, the explosiveness and the finish. 10 out of 10. Unreal. I can not look away. Jaylen Brown is going to win Rookie of the Year. I don’t know if that is really a hot take anymore with Ben Simmons out for maybe the whole season. But damn this kid can be special. And I feel like a broken record with this because it is the same thing with Marcus Smart, but if he can get that shot down, watch out NBA.
I can’t wait for the season to start and the lineup to shake out. I am really interested on the lineup combinations that stick for this team. I really would like to see how our small ball lineups do this season, because they really allow us to get our best players on the floor. With Isaiah and Bradley at the 1 and 2, either Smart or Jaylen at the 3, and Crowder and Horford at the 4 and 5. Oh boy I am getting excited just thinking about it.
We are in for a great season ladies and gentleman. So get ready. Banner 18 here we come.
P.S. We were SOOO close to 2 Jaylen Slammys in 1 game. Jaylen almost ended Joel Embiid’s career before it even started….
