Quoted @NoahLevick

Ben Simmons on Jared Dudley's comment about him being an average player in the half court: "That's coming from Jared Dudley."

I am inspired by the Nets-76ers beef. They haven’t even gotten to Game 3 yet and they’re launching missiles back and forth at each other in the press.

Sacrificing for one another. Doing the little things. Keeping it simple. The Celtics are ditching the bad habits that have held them back, and doing the right things, at exactly the right time.

"It felt good to be here in this position, playing in this arena. It’s just been a long journey having those two knee surgeries and watching the team last year. And finally getting a chance to lace ‘em up for the Boston Celtics in the NBA playoffs, there’s nothing like it.”

When Brad Stevens told him that pass to Tatum was a hell of a play, Brown said he joked: You thought I was going to lay it up didn’t you? Stevens told the wing he expected him to make the right play, as he did.
