  • 42 point performance by Jalen Brown.

  • Jayson Tatum chipped in with 16 points, but it was Brown seven of 10 performance from behind the arc that spearheaded Boston's win over Memphis.

  • All right, now we bring them in.

  • Kendrick Perkins, here with us and Kendrick will start with you here.

  • Who do you believe is the best player on the Celtics roster today?

  • Well, Charlie, with all due respect to Jason Tatum, I'm a huge fan of Jayson Tatum.

  • I think he's a rising star in this league, but so is Jalen Brown.

  • Jalen Brown is the best player on the Boston Celtics, best all around player.

  • And now the Onley edge that Jayson Tatum had over Jalen Brown was his ability to get buckets Jalen Brown has took.

  • That next step is nothing Jalen Brown can't do offensively that no one else could do in the league.

  • He has zero flaws in his offensive game.

  • He has a mid range package.

  • He could slash to the basket.

  • He could drive to the basket with with his right or left hand finish strong at the rim.

  • His three point percentage is up, and here's why.

  • I knew Here's what I knew when I knew that Jalen Brown took the leak, that he is a elite player in this league.

  • It is not this sample size that we're seeing right now.

  • It's what he did last year in the bubble in the postseason.

  • He was the most consistent player on the Celtics on the Celtic team.

  • Last year, when Gordon Haywood went out, it was his time to step up.

  • Just think about what he did before the pandemic, averaging 20 points tonight and not getting a single play call for him.

  • He was the fourth option, shooting 50% from the field.

  • So coming into this season, it's a reason why in the preseason I picked Jalen Brown toe win most improved player because I said one.

  • Finally, Gordon Haywood is gone and it's finally out of his way to kill Bills hurt.

  • We're gonna watch Jalen Brown emerging to the superstar that he is, and in my opinion, not only is he's excellent on the offensive end, but on the defensive end he's one of one because switch one through five pick and rolls and there's one of the best elite defenders at the wing position that we have in this league.

  • So when I'm looking at in this league, so when I'm looking at this Boston Celtic team is no doubt my mind with all due respect to Jayson Tatum, but Jalen Brown is the best player on the Boston Celtics.

  • I don't disagree with you.

  • That is close.

  • But I don't think that Jason Tatum or excuse me that Jalen Brown is taking the mantle just yet and I'm not wrong.

  • I'm not wrong in that.

  • I understand that your basketball experience gives you a little more insight or a lot more insight than I have.

  • No, I'm not.

  • I'm not wrong.

  • You're not disagree with me.

  • You're disagreeing with the whole Celtics organization.

  • You're disagreeing with Brad Stevens, like if you watch those games, you said it yourself.

  • Jayson Tatum has more plays, Call for him.

  • You know why?

  • Because they think he's better.

  • They think that he's better.

  • That's why they give him the ball and you talk about who's the best player At the end of games.

  • We find out who teams really believe in who teams really trust in those clutch situations and close situations.

  • Jayson Tatum outscored Jalen ready, almost doubled him up one 42 to 75 in those situations, and it's still cold percentage.

  • Don't even try to pull out because I looked that up to.

  • He has a higher field goal percentage in those situations.

  • It's not just about volume.

  • He shoots at 44% of them Thio.

  • Jalen Brown's 40% in in those situations, and he has a higher usage rates with to me suggests that Brad Stevens, Danny Ainge Everybody in that building believes that he is a better player and I agree with them.

  • I think it's very close.

  • Maybe Jalen Brown is the most improved player, but there's a long step from most improved player to best player on the team.

  • No, and here's where you're wrong.

  • Just because in the clutch time that your number is called doesn't mean that you're the best player.

  • Like I said, Jalen Brown just had to wait his turn.

  • Kyrie Urban was in Jason Tatum way when Kyrie Irving left, did Jayson Tatum was ableto emerge here.
