Marcus Smart can do a plethora of different things on the court.
After Monday morning’s shootaround, add go-to wide receiver and shutdown cornerback to his vast skillset. Smart and Jaylen Brown had a friendly football competition at the end of practice as each ran routes against the other while Javonte Green served as the automatic quarterback.
Smart looked like a natural wide-out as he hauled in two tough catches, including a one-handed snag with Brown in defense.

When the roles were reversed, Smart still got the better of the matchup.

Be interesting to see what Smart and other Celtics could do with pads and a helmet on and Tom Brady throwing them the football.
