People are getting crazy over Brown struggling to adjust going from a 1st/2nd option in the playoffs to a 4th/5th option this season...he was always a rhythm shooter that needed a few shots to settle into the game mentally, it also doesn't help that Stevens yanks him out of the game whenever he gets hot. Please remember that he's the youngest Celtic to ever get 30+ in a playoff game, and he did it TWICE on good efficiency against an excellent 3 and D player in Middleton. I'm more p---ed at Stevens' infatuation for small ball from the get go against centers like Gobert, it just doesn't work...
He's taking more shots in less time on the court, so needing shots isn't the problem at all. It's his inability to make them.

Also, if a guy is disengaged mentally because he's not getting shots then that's a problem in itself
I think it's way too soon to give up on a guy with his talent. However, what does concern me about him is his ball handling.  it's poor and he to me looks like a guy who just has bad hands.  If that's the case that will prevent him from ever becoming an all star.

Iím definitely not giving up on him, but my expectations are definitely tempered compared to at the end of the last playoffs. He just hasnít made any noticeable jumps on offence, and like you say, heíll find it very difficult to be an All-Star if he doesnít change that

Well what can you say? We got torched by Kemba Walker tonight. More damage control from Stevens and company.
