Although, Celtics fans can see in this NBA playoff series that the Nets are on another level with the talent they have with Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden.
Celtics Beat along with Mark Murphy, question whether the Celtics have enough talent, even when healthy, to compete with the top teams or do they have to make a big move?

Brown took a big jump this year, as he was at times the best player on the court for the team and plays both sides of the ball. Brown became an All-Star and finished the season with about 25 PTS and 6 REBS.
