We are 8th in defensive rating and 9th in offensive rating in the NBA currently through the season

Oh, great, 17th out of 30 teams.

Here's the Brown/Smart little argument. I don't think it was anything big at all, but I think this goes beyond tonight.

Smart seems to be angry because Brown went away from the options on the play they were running. This is something that Brown has done frequently throughout the year that I've noticed, and a lot of times it has been Smart, especially when the play is set up for him to get the ball posting up. Rozier has done this frequently, too, and it becomes a problem because the bench unit just isn't good enough to go freelancing on its own. It's not too big of a deal, because that's just young player errors that they learn to avoid as they age and mature. But I can see why Smart gets frustrated about that.

But ultimately I just think this is two very competitive guys getting into a little spat. You can see how competitive these two are together in the practice videos, so I really don't think this is anything big at all.

Yeah nothing to see there. It was what I didnt like with Rozier. Brown's decision were not bad per se, but sometimes a set play is the best decision. Smart is the leader of the second unit and its up to him to run that unit.

 TP for the video Potter. That video showed me that Crowder is the toughest guy on the team, he took charge and pushed both guys when needed.

 If you notice the little guy has nothing to say at all. He's smart.

 Horford yelled at one point, not really getting good value on that 27 million per year deal.

 Crowders leadership is a much better bargain at around 7 million.

Lol leadership can't be solely measured by this scene. In fact, I doubt any of us know how much of a leader a player is behind the scenes. Players also don't get paid coz of leadership alone. They get paid based on their skillset, team needs, market value, and production.

Marcus is an intense dude on the court.  Hard as they come.  He might have been a little ruff on Jaylen .  It appeared Jaylen had a decent drive at the bucket .

I think Marcus is getting wound up for playoff time ,  he wants the guys to focus .


IT was smiling the whole time .  He likes the intensity and emotion ......shows him guys care.

This isn't high school, Marcus. It's the NBA. Jaylen needs to be more assertive offensively. Why mess with his head?

The entire Smart/Brown thing started on a quick rebound to offense possession for the T Wolves when I think Brown kind of jogged back to the defensive end and Smart had to cover/foul his guy. I remember them zooming in on TV and you could hear Smart yelling at Brown "Where were you there? Where were you?" I think Smart was just frustrated with him after that.

A little tough love to the rookie is all it is. He's gotta learn. And for all of Smart's fault shooting wise, he seems like one of the main leaders on the team.

This isn't high school.  If getting chewed out by Marcus for not showing enough effort on D messes with Jaylen's head and prevents him from being aggressive on offense, then he doesn't belong here.

He'll be fine.
I'm bitter.

I love it. This is the kind of stuff that legends are born into. You use fire to harden steel, not cupcakes and rainbows and 20 shots a game. Hopefully Brown continues to get galvanized.

Honestly, I just want Smart around to treat all of the young talented players like this.
Favorite Current NBA Player: Jaylen Brown
-> Fan since his first game against the Cavs.

Tatum fan since he shot his first jumper.

You are right, the argument started on court before the play on the video.

I have no problem if Marcus was chewing him out for not hustling back on D. But if it was because Jaylen was asserting himself on offense, different story.
