Brooks is coming off a forgettable 2012-13 season in which his stats plummeted to 5.4 points over 12.5 minutes per game. In his rookie season he earned All-Rookie second team honors, to go with a 12.6 PPG. Many Celtics fans were upset with Ainge for dealing his rights to Brooklyn for JuJuan Johnson, who was later traded by the C's.
Brooks could be a special player. It's truly up tom him if he wants to grow with this team ,and with a player of Rondo's caliber. It's possible Brooks had no chance this season when the Nets traded for Joe Johnson. Brooks took a backseat, and now he will compete for a starting job perhaps. Brooks should have some motivation coming into this season. The Celtics are overstocked with shooting guards at the moment. It should be a nice fight for the starting gig between Bradley and Brooks.
