MarShon Brooks Ready to Step Up For Celtics
MarShon Brooks appears at home at the Celtics’ Waltham training facility. After two turbulent seasons with the Brooklyn Nets that saw him play, not play, and then thrust back into playing time. After being the prized player going to the Celtics in the Kevin Garnett/Paul Pierce trade, Brooks is trying to gain a comfort level in the NBA for the first time.
“It’s the same mentality, I just want to try to prove myself,” he said. “Prove myself on both sides, show I can play on both sides of the court, score when I get the opportunity and just try to turn heads.”
