Being compared to Middleton is supposed to be an insult?
Dude is a multiple time all star who has gotten all nba consideration.
Not only that, but Brown is clearly already as good as Middleton today, if not better.
Plus, this thread asking about Brown's ceiling.
Middleton is at his absolute peak, he's 29. It's very rare that a guy improves at his age.
Brown meanwhile is only 24. Guys typically peak between age 27-29. So it would be shocking if Brown doesn't improve enough over the next few years to surpass Middleton's peak. And again, one might argue Brown has already (at age 24) surpassed Middleton's peak with what Brown has done this season..
Middleton last season per 36 (the Bucks smashed everyone so the starters didn’t play a ton) put up 25/7/5 on a 62% TS, and was much better defensively than Jaylen this season. Was a fringe all nba season, which is where I have Jaylen peaking around, but with better raw numbers, and over a much longer time period. I’m just saying Middleton peaked pretty damn high last season, and saying Jaylen may max out at that is a compliment, not an insult.
Numbers are somewhat skewered this season, there’s zero defense being played. I think that will correct back some next season, and we may see players numbers drop off a bit.
Real basketball is playoff basketball. Jaylen is better than Middleton when PO basketball comes.
Take a look at the stats. Except of the series 2018 vs the Celtics Middleton is really ineffective in PO and he is playing with an MVP
