Has Marcus Smart been working on his shooting? What has Jaylen Brown been cooking up this summer? What hairstyle and facial hair will Aron Baynes be wearing this season?
With only four players returning from last year’s Eastern Conference Finalist, there will be a lot of questions heading into camp. Some will be answered today at Media Day, but dozens more will come up as the pre-season moves forward. But this is not one of those “hope springs eternal” years for Boston. Even though most of the team is new, adding Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward has upped the ante for the franchise. Fans will expect playoff Al Horford to anchor this team. Smart and Terry Rozier have to step up. Brown and Jayson Tatum will be under a microscope as their development won’t only be nurtured, but relied upon.
