Playing significant minutes at power forward in Tatum’s place and even playing occasionally at center, Brown’s flexibility and intensity have been a needed injection. “I feel like I’m not a position player, I’m a basketball player. 4-3-2, whatever coach needs me to do, I will make the adjustment,” Brown said. “Obviously with Jayson out, there’s a little more opportunity and maybe it was a little more visible. But every time I take the floor, I want to be aggressive.”

Jayson Tatum back on Wednesday?

Stadium:Good news for the Celtics and USA Basketball, per NBA Insider @ShamsCharania: Jayson Tatum has a strong chance to make his return for Team USA in quarterfinals against France on Wednesday.

Harrison Barnes, former AP student, was cited as being the best Pop Quiz contestant. “Derrick White’s eliminated automatically,” Mitchell said. “because he’s used to it [playing for Popovich’s San Antonio Spurs]. I would say the best has been Harrison Barnes. We haven’t had too many guys go up yet. But we’ve all chipped in.” “I think the only person who got one right was Harrison,” Jayson Tatum added. “Everybody else had to ask a friend.”
It should’ve been a forgettable game, just a formality in pool play. But Jayson Tatum always remembered the big athletic guy on Team Japan. It was four years ago in Dubai, and Tatum was playing for the U.S. team in the under-17 world championships. He had a nice game, leading the team with 19 points as it beat the Japanese by a preposterous 122-38 margin. But of those 38 points, a lanky and fluid young kid named Rui Hachimura scored 25 of them. The Japanese went a woeful 1-6 in the event, but Hachimura was a revelation to Tatum and many who were there. He averaged 22.6 points and 6.6 rebounds, the leading scorer of the tournament.
