CANTON, MA — The lessons of the 2018-19 campaign hung over the Boston Celtics media day on Monday. The abundance of confidence and guarantees from last fall mellowed into patience.
Marcus Smart stressed it, Kemba Walker said he’ll go with the flow, while Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum kept expectations to themselves. Brown guaranteed a NBA Finals trip last year and his adjustment reflected a locker room that learned from last year’s debacle.
“My mantra for myself and my teammates is just come out and hoop,” Brown said.
