Celtics Player Review: P.J. Brown

P.J. Brown, who was retired at the beginning the season, became a key player for the Celtics down the stretch. He may not have played in a lot of games in the regular season, but during the playoffs P.J. had the role of back-up center to Kendrick Perkins.

The Celtics needed his veteran presence during the tumultuous postseason, as well as a big guy who could rebound and occasionally put up a point or two. He may or may not have started the season the way he wanted to, but I am sure that P.J. ended the season the way he wanted (and never imagined).

The Regular Season

P.J. had low averages for the regular season, finishing with only 2.2 points and 3.8 rebounds per game. He also only played in 18 games of the regular season due to his coming out of retirement during the All-Star break in New Orleans. Celtics fans can thank the Big Three for talking P.J. into joining the C’s and helping them down the stretch.

The Playoffs

During the playoffs, P.J. played in 25 games out of the Celtics’ 26. The playoffs were where P.J. shined. He averaged 2.9 points and 2.4 rebounds per game. His best game came against Cleveland in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semi-finals. Brown played 20 minutes of that game and finished with 10 points and 6 rebounds.

Where will P.J. Brown end up?

The future is still up in the air for P.J. Brown. Most have speculated that Brown will likely go back into retirement after finally winning an NBA Championship. He was the fourth oldest active player this season at 38 years-old. P.J. did not say that would definitely retire though, and there is still the possibilty that he could sign with any team. Whatever he does I am sure that P.J. will gladly remember his time spent in Boston.
