Why can’t Boston’s Jaylen Brown dribble in traffic?

Game 7 of the 2023 Eastern Conference finals was not very entertaining for fans of the Boston Celtics, who watched the Miami Heat escape the embarrassment of blowing a 3-0 series lead.

Miami’s defense was outstanding, limiting Boston to 84 points, the lowest in the series, and Caleb Martin was the star of the game.

For Celtics fans, Jaylen Brown had a disappointing performance with 8 turnovers and 5 fouls. He struggled with ballhandling all game in what must have seemed like a recurring nightmare.

Can the Georgia native ever get his handle to a level where he will not be a walking target attacking the basket?

The host of the “Also Rusty Buckets” podcast recently took a deep dive into Game 7 and Brown’s substandard handle.

Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear his thoughts on Brown’s ball control issues.
