  • the Nets and the Celtics.

  • They're also playing.

  • Tomorrow.

  • They'll battle it out for what could potentially be Eastern Conference finals Guys Jalen Brown and Jason Tatum each scored 30 last night for The Seas, one night after K D and Kyrie combined for 48.

  • It's your former team here who is the most important person in the Celtics Nets game Perk is Jalen Brown.

  • Look, we already know what we're gonna get, what you're going to get from Kevin Durant.

  • You already know what you're going to get from Kyrie Irving.

  • You already know what you're going to get from Jason Tatum.

  • The stage just set for Jalen Brown.

  • And here's why.

  • What?

  • Kemba Walker Being out.

  • It's time for Jalen Brown to show the world that he belongs.

  • I thought last year that he got snubbed.

  • He should have been the All Star.

  • He was.

  • The guy that averaged 20 points on 49% shooting could lock you up on the other end.

  • Look at what he did last year in the bubble.

  • When going Haywood went out, he stepped his game up tremendously.

  • One could argue that he was the most consistent player on the Celtics roster, and now you have him.

  • But being out Jalen Brown is his time right now to show the world, show the Celtic fans that he's a league player and that his name should be mentioned in the conversation with the elite Wings When you mentioned Kawhi Leonard, Jayson Tatum, Kevin Durant, Uh, Paul George Jalen Brown should be right there in the thick of things.

  • So I'm looking to see what Jalen Brown is gonna do tomorrow.

  • Can he follow up with the performance he had last night and come and bring it against the Brooklyn Nets on Christmas Day?

  • Now you're finally talking some sense.

  • I respect that answer.

  • It's wrong, but I respect because it's Jalen Brown is not that much different than Jason Tatum.

  • If that's the case there, like one A and one B, the Celtics gonna be ah, whole kind of problem this season, and Jalen Brown really showed something last night.

  • But the answer is actually Kevin Durant.

  • Maybe even because of what you said about Jalen Brown, because what we have a tendency to do is making elite tier.

  • And then once you're in the elite, it's like, well, that cancels out, but they're as meek, Mill said, for their levels to this right, Kevin Durant is not just supposed to be elite.

  • He's supposed to give the Nets a premium if he's really still K D.

  • If he's not 80% k d.

  • But back to what he waas.

  • He's supposed to give you a premium against guys like Jalen Brown and Jason Tatum.

  • He's supposed to be the best player in the East whenever he takes the court, except for some nights, maybe against the Greek freak.

  • Because though he was two time reigning regular season M V p in the regular season, at least other than the Greek freak, he's certainly supposed to be a better than everybody else whenever he takes the floor.

  • And if K D can do that, the sky really is the limit for the Nets.

  • They're not simply in the mix with the Celtics with the Bucks and teams like that, but they really would.

  • They're gonna be overwhelming favorites to get out of the East, maybe even win a chip if K D is really K D is the most important player in that game.

  • What what, Max?

  • I'm not arguing that and we already know what Kevin Durant is gonna bring to the table.

  • But what I'm saying is is that we know that the Brooklyn Nets have a duo.

  • We know that Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant is a lead duo, arguably the best duo in the league.

  • If you want to compare LeBron James and Anthony Davis, you could pick your poison, right.

  • What I'm saying is, in order for the Celtics toe have a chance.

  • They're Duo is gonna have to step up.

  • We know what Jayson Tatum is capable of doing.

  • We know that he could go for 40.

  • Now it's time for Jalen Brown.

  • That's why I'm saying he's the most important player in this matchup tomorrow night.

  • And by the way, you stop capping to the people out there listening.

  • You know you don't listen to Meek Mill's.

  • And when did you just happen to jump on the K D bandwagon?

  • Because just 23 weeks ago, Max, you was telling me that Oh, Kevin Durant, he's not gonna be the Katie because almost always when you have an injury like Achilles injury is no way you're gonna return to the same caliber player you was before you got hurt.

  • So stop all that, Captain, because you know you're not jamming meek mills.

  • Stop it.

  • Number one.

  • Number one perk.

  • You don't want to talk hip hop with me.

  • Do you really want to do that?

  • You really want to do that?

  • Are you questioning my hip hop bona fie days right now on national TV number two?

  • I agree with you about Jalen Brown's importance.

  • There's no doubt he makes the Celtics different if that's not a mirage, if he doesn't kind of Plateau is sort of All Star but really is ascending is one of the elite Wings.

  • K d is different.

  • That's right.

  • A couple weeks ago, I was questioning K d because I'm not gonna put that on him.

  • Come back from an Achilles as one of the only players in history to ever do it and still be the same dude.

  • It almost never happens if he could do it great, but like I need to see it through the pre season and so far in a regular season game, I have seen that, and what that means is look what happened to the Warriors when they got K d the Warriors were lucky to beat the Cavs in one finals before K D.

  • And the only reason the Warriors beat the Cavs was because LeBron didn't have Kyrie or Kevin Love or else.

  • I'm telling you right now, the Warriors surely would have lost that Siri's.

  • They went 76 games with DellaVedova as LeBron's crime partner.

  • Give me a break, right?

  • They needed the premium that K d brought to that team.

  • He that premium to weigh seven footer is difference maker.

  • You lucky because I was about to address you like the numbers on the house.

  • I can't believe you brought up Katie and the Warriors and Katie being the difference maker after you just got Never mind.

  • Go ahead, Molly.

  • Go ahead.

  • Because that we're goingto another comments that I've always said that all the time you joined us 73.

  • 1 team they couldn't lose.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.
