Jaylen Brown silences trade talks as Boston jumps to No. 1 in the East

Jaylen Brown’s latest play, along with Boston’s success, has quieted commercial whispers.

When former players and NBA analysts say the 82-game season is a “marathon, not a sprint,” they really mean it. The regular season can be physically and mentally draining for a lot of players.

Constant travel, along with wear and tear on the body can be a challenge. This is where the strongest individuals thrive, and this was true for Jaylene Brown and the Boston Celtics.

The young Celtics star silenced commercial rumors about him leaving Boston as the Celtics were scorching hot and now tied for first place in the Eastern Conference.

On January 7, the Boston Celtics finished 11th in the East and their season was looking bleak. After about 11 weeks, the team found themselves in a completely different situation. With Miami losing to Brooklyn on Saturday night, and the 76ers losing to The Suns Sunday, that leaves the Celtics tied with Miami for only the top spot.

In the Celtics’ last 25 games, the team was 22-3. This is due to the strong pairing between Jason Tatum and Jaylen Brown. The pair has scored 25 or more points in the current six winning streak. Join Jerry West and Elgin Baylor, along with Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant As the only pair of teammates to score 25 or more in six consecutive games together.

“The energy is about to shift” Brown tweeted on January 31st, which is when the Celtics cynically started changing their season. In his last five matches, Brown has averaged 28.4 points, 5.0 rebounds, 59.1 field goal percentage and 51.9 percent of three while taking 5.4 attempts per game.

His seasonally averages are 23.4 points, 6.1 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.0 rebounds per game. He earned his first All-Star pick last year, and some feel he’s been overlooked this year, despite being close to similar or better numbers. NBA fans know that the All-Star Game can turn into a popular competition and that those who deserve it don’t always make it through.

Jaylen Brown only has the potential to improve and that’s scary for fans in the Eastern Conference for years to come. In his sixth year as a professional, Brown is only 25 years old and has not yet entered the “top” of his career. His stats increased every year and Boston made the playoffs in each of his first six seasons. – Reaching the finals of the conference twice.

The average age of the league is 26.2 years. Boston’s average age is just under 25.8, and the only player over 30 to earn real minutes in the NBA is Al Horford. Brown is only 25 years old and Jason Tatum is only 24 years old. Read it twice! Boston would be good for a very long time if they could keep both. It won’t be easy to push and hold superstars like Brown and Tatum.

With seven games remaining this season, the Celtics will be looking to retain the top spot for the next two weeks. Possibly even possession of the ball alone and pushing Miami further down. Will Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum have enough to bring Boston back into the Conference Finals to compete for a place in the NBA Finals?
