Has Jaylen Brown emerged as the Boston Celtics’ leader?

Jaylen Brown has enjoyed a stellar season for the Boston Celtics. He’s emerged as one of the best slashing forwards in the NBA and has shown a fearsome mid-range game to counter how defenses look to limit his drives. Yet, the most impressive aspect of Brown’s growth has been his leadership, specifically how he leads by example.

When speaking to the media following the Celtics Game 4 win over the Indiana Pacers on Monday (May 27), Brown noted how he has attempted to step into the leadership void that was left behind when Marcus Smart was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies last summer.

On the latest episode of the “Celtics Chronicle“, the hosts discuss Brown’s leadership and whether he is the team’s clear-cut leader or whether he and Jayson Tatum are splitting the duties but approaching things in different ways.
