Malcolm Brogdon shares initial impressions following first game with Boston Celtics




 

The Boston Celtics made a splash in trading for Malcolm Brogdon this July, adding the former 2017 Rookie of the Year to an already formidable line-up. Brogdon, meanwhile, is now playing alongside perhaps the most talented roster in his professional career.

After Boston's big preseason victory against the Charlotte Hornets, Brogdon was asked about his impression of the team thus far. His admiration for the the organization was clear.

"It's a team full of unselfish guys that clearly have an objective to just win." Brogdon said." We want to win at all this year. So we're trying to build for that. We're not really concerned about statistics."

Brogdon stated he understands his role coming to the Celtics. He smiled as he explained that he's facing less potent defenders playing alongside Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.

"We know JT and JB are gonna lead us every night on the offensive end." Brogdon said. "And it's up to the rest of us to play our roles and to support them, and also play to the best of our abilities."

Brogdon, 29, is one of the elder statesmen in the Celtics locker room. He explained he shares responsibility with Marcus Smart to quarterback the offense. Overall, he sounded ready to support the club in any way necessary.
