“There’s a reason that Ben Simmons is a max player and Jaylen Brown isn’t,” begins guest John Tomase of NBC Sports Boston’s “Celtics Talk” podcast, which has the network’s Red Sox reporter throw down the gauntlet in dramatic fashion on his own assessment of the rumored interest in the Philadelphia 76ers in dealing their alienated star for the Celtics All-Star forward.

Fighting words, perhaps? Host Chris Forsberg takes the lead-in with the sort of grace many of us might not be able to muster in the face of such blasphemy, but the Red Sox reporter does make a few good points in the midst of his heresy.

Watch the clip embedded below to get an earful (and an eyeful) of the less common perspective on such a prospective trade between the two Atlantic Division rivals that has been dominating the Celtics news cycle for the last 24 hours.
