With the develop of Tatum, and Irving and Hayward coming back, Brown will become the 4th option on offence again. Next season he wonít have as many touches as this year, we are likely to see his numbers drop, and he might be used differently once Hayward is available. What should Jaylen Brown do to keep developing his game? Should he add a catch and shoot to his offence?

Watch films and develop some signature moves. I saw him doing the Jordan/Kobe fade away at times. Improve more his handles and last but not the least, FT shooting.

Improve at the free throw line definitely as an absolute minimum. He made a huge improvement this year with his three point shooting but I think he can get better, at least in terms of knowing when to shoot.

- Shoot free throws more consistently.
- Looking to get a bigger extension on his layups, to increase his finishing rate at the rim.
- Practice falling/tumbling, as he often gets in those situations and it might prevent injuries.
- Boxing out with more regularity on rebounds.
- Learn how to defend in the post.
- Tighten his handle, especially on his left hand.

Free throws first and foremost

Stronger hands. Gets stripped a lot

Stronger finishing at the ring. Gets blocked a lot

He should train with Irving for dribble and ask Hayward for reading the games, learn how to protect the ball when driving and use the length from Tatum

And shoot 3000fts each day

I'd say he should do exactly what he did last summer. He came into this season a better 3 point shooter, better passer, better ball-handler, and was able to defend better in the team defensive scheme. His offensive arsenal also became a lot more complete with more control at the rim and some killer fade-aways. Of course he needs to work on his FTs, but he even got much better at those after an abysmal start.

He needs improvement every where. Shooting, defending, moving with out the ball, setting picks, finishing, free throws and on. He isn't elite at anything right now. He also disappears at times. Then there are the brain hiccups where he makes very bad decisions, especially defensive ones. He needs to grow all his game. He is a "nine/ten of all trades" right now.

Keep working on his handle and passing off the bounce. As bummed as I am/was about his performance last night remember how far he has come from last year.

Agree with your list,

If he only improves his FT and becomes a better post defender I would be thrilled. I also think we will see him add a little more weight to his frame.

Agree. You have to look at the entire body of work not just one game.

Ball movement when driving to the hole. He can't keep getting stripped or being forced into jump balls!

FT shooting is obvious.

Having a plan B when he goes to a hole is another big issue. He gets tunnel vision and doesn't pass out when the opposition crowds the paint like the Cavs did this series daring us to shoot outside. He ended up getting stuffed when he was doubled. This was a problem when he came into the league too.
