Marshon Brooks 2012-13 highlight mix

Marshon Brooks is definitely one of the more intriguing pieces of last month’s franchise changing trade with the Brooklyn Nets. Originally drafted by Boston, Brooks averaged a respectable 12.6 ppg over 56 contests during the 2011-12 season-his rookie year. However his time on the hardwood was lessened drastically last season, and he only started 2 games for the Nets as opposed to 47 his rookie campaign. His minutes also dropped from 29.4 a game his first year to just over 12 last season. With Boston’s roster packed with guards, how many minutes will Brad Stevens give Brooks? This should be one of the more interesting stories during training camp. What are your thoughts on Brooks, and should he be one of Stevens’ go to guys off the Boston bench? Let us know in the comments section.

YouTube user TheBrooklynGame put together this 2012-13 highlight video of Brooks:

    Reminds me of Jordan Crawford but a little more controlled and athletic.

    • LA Flake

      He’s got a lot of Kobe in his game. There’s not a lot he can’t do offensively. Although we drafted him for someone else, I consider him a Celtic just like Jeff Green.

      • Raoul

        Lol does anyone else think this doesn’t make any sense? Jeff Green was a Celtic before his stint and Marshon Brooks has always been? You’re pushing it a little bro. Marbury actually played for us and I would never ever consider him a Celtic. I guess Lucas Nogueira, Lester Hudson, and Randy Foye are Celtics to you as well. Maybe too much Celtic pride is possible.

    why did we trade jujuan johnson for this guy in the first place? oh wait he wouldnt have gotten any playing time under doc.

  • Aye Run

    has anyone ever seen marshon brooks and jordan crawford in the same room at the same time?

  • Aye Run

    ouch. adam with a shot at doc. adam probably subscribes to my theory that danny didn’t really want doc around to head up the rebuilding either. been there, done that. doc wasn’t the right guy then either. doc is a good coach of talented vets — period.

    • adam

      I’m subscribe to the theory rookies have to work their asses off and prove to doc they deserve it. Who have we seen do that in the KG era? Davis and Sullinger? Maybe the Turkish Center.

    • LA Flake

      if you have talented vets, they’re going to make the coach look good.

  • eddysamson

    I don’t know a whole lot about Brooks, but I like him. I am sure he will be better than Crawford.

  • Raoul

    Marshon is a baller and, according to his ex-teammates, he was the best scorer on the team for the last 2 years, hands down.

    • LA Flake

      That’s a stretch considering he was on the same team with Lopez, DWill and Joe Johnson. But he was awesome when we played the Nets. He’s a great pick up.

      • Raoul

        A stretch for whom? Those are his ex-teammates
