Offense

Brown began the season a man afire, showing the world how he could dominate the midrange like few in the league could, rocketing up the leaderboards in the first few weeks of 2020-21.

Then the team asked him to pull his offense out past the 3-point arc, which saw the Georgia native raise his efficiency to a new career-high of 39.7%.

He also shot career-highs from 2-point range and the free-throw line while turning in personal bests in scoring and assists per game – only an All-NBA nod could have given him a better grade. Co/RTTUjIVz7S

Intangibles

Brown took responsibility for the team’s missteps even when they clearly weren’t his, and gave credit to his teammates to make sure they not only got their just recognition but also stayed engaged. Co/KRiKbXEF3I

Overall

Any close assessment of Brown in relation to his ceiling has constantly come up short once the time has passed and we review where we thought he would be compared to where he ends up.
