Tatum skills are on the offensive side of the ball but can he become a better rebounder and defender only time will tell. The mental aspect of their play will be very important to each player as they develop this year. Can Brad Stevens instill a high achievement level similar players such as Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder. Can Brown and Tatum bring a strong work and mental ethic to training camp and throughout the entire season for 2019-2020. Brown is the sleeper who I believe can be a difference maker. If he applies himself and is mature to handle the tough defensive assignments,rebound and take high percentage shots. He will become the difference maker in games. Weaknesses for Brown can be directed to his mental skills to keep focused and not get lost defending or taking bad shots. Another area is his passing skills should be improved when his shot is not available. Tatum has a different set of skills that are on the offensive side of the ball that can be related to having the ball to create offense. His weaknesses are shot selection, mediocre defense, rebounding and ego.
Tatum is already a plus defender, don't have any clue where him having issues on defense comes from. He struggles in the post against 4s, but that's it.
