Jon called Jae Crowder a massive, colossal disappointment this season. Although he’s up to shooting 40% behind the arc, it’s his defense that’s been a problem. Jon believes the Carmelo Anthony rumors are more intriguing now specifically because Crowder “hasn’t been that good”.
Jaylen Brown’s progression is reviewed. “He has all the tools” says Jon, but it’s the experience that is missing. Justin believes he doesn’t yet know how to adjust to players in the NBA, but loves that he is starting with Bradley out.
