Paul Pierce believes Boston Celtics star wing Jaylen Brown is the best 2 guard in the NBA


While some of his shine has, perhaps, been diminished by the rise of swingman Jayson Tatum to elite status, some prominent NBA minds do not necessarily see star Boston Celtics shooting guard Jaylen Brown as that far behind his teammate from St. Louis.

Among them is Hall of Famer Paul Pierce, who claimed Brown is the best 2 guard in the league ahead of the Celtics' controversial home win over the Los Angeles Lakers. Sitting down with the folks at NBC Sports Boston, including fellow former Celtic Brian Scalabrine and Eddie House, The Truth broke down why the Georgia native is so good.

Take a look at the clip embedded below to hear what Pierce had to say about Brown's game in full for yourself.
