We have Jaylen Brown who IMO has the ceiling to become like Kawhi Leonard with more athleticism.
That's amazing considering I originally thought his ceiling was Jimmy Butler, but dare I say he already looks better than Jimmy Butler (or at least, at his level now with his two-way play and impact)
Yes, Brown still needs to prove himself by being more consistent, but the guy has been a huge reason we're up 2-0 this series, and watching him match Lebron on the other end while Lebron was going OFF was just pure beast mode.
He's just 21 years old!
And here's an amusing stat:
Jaylen Brown has 23.0 PPG through two games this series. The record for highest PPG in a full conference finals series by a player younger than 22-years-old is Kobe Bryant's 20.4 PPG in 2000.
Obviously that average can drop and there's still the rest of the series to go, but that just shows how legit Jaylen can become.
Again.. who needs Kawhi? Ainge shouldn't be spending too much time with the Spurs FO if they call asking about interest in Kawhi.
Would Kawhi be a nice add? Absolutely. Top-5 player when healthy. But at a trade price involving 2 of Kings Pick/Brown/Tatum? LOL nope. Keep this team/core relatively intact with Kyrie and Hayward also coming back.
