I disagree on both players. So he is TOO emotional, TOO competitive, trying TOO hard so he end up jogging back on D when his man outruns him?
I think Terry is very team oriented, but just a super aggressive offensive player. He may be pressing too hard due to short minutes, that's all. Just about every time he starts there are good results. I cannot knock a player like this. It's a little greedy of people to expect us to have a "star" backup PG along the likes of Jeremy Lin/JJ Barea, to go with all of our max type players. I like his rebounding and I think he has a bit of the clutch gene.
Brown is not at all like Jeff Green. If anything Brown is TOO emotional. This is not Jeff Green territory. Brown's problem is minutes. Nothing more. He may not play with the same IQ as Hayward yet, he may not have a perfect BBIQ, but it's not a bad IQ at all for a 21 year old. If he's kept, he'll eventually be a starter and prove himself worthy. If he's traded he'll get back to last year's production sooner but for another team.
Or is it because minutes? or the hand injury? or the role?
What other excuse does he have to be lazy on D?
Jogging back on D is indefensible. That is, even though most players do it from time to time, there is nothing you can say that really excuses it. The question regarding Jaylen is to what degree we want to condemn him for it. Permanent character flaw, or perhaps a transgression of youth. We all had those transgressions -- if we don't recall our own, we might remember those of Cedric Maxwell, or Paul Pierce, or Marcus Smart. If you were around when DJ played for the Sonics or Suns, you may recall a moment or 2. Are Jaylen's mental lapses cured over time, or do the "head not in the game" moments come to characterize his career? Time will tell, but I tend not to be too tough on 22 year olds.
