It made headlines all over the wider NBA media sphere when Boston Celtics veteran point guard dragged his teammates Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum’s names into a postgame media scrum after his team collapsed at a historic level against the Chicago Bulls on Monday. But, there has since been a general consensus among fans and analysts that the Flower Mound native was right about suggesting that the two All-Star forwards need to pass the ball more.

What if that assessment was not in fact correct? We have seen since that defensive attentiveness has played a major if not critical role in the team’s back-to-back wins against the Orlando Magic and Miami Heat since, adding some credence to Coach Nick, host of the popular podcast “BBall Breakdown” in a recent episode.
