Final Grades and Performance Reviews

Shannon Brown:

Shannon Brown was another reserve guard for the Lakers who had a solid season. Brown filled in for many injured starters and was very impressive. With his extended minutes, Brown showed many people that he is capable of scoring 20 points.

Jun. 08, 2010 - Boston, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES - epa02193030 Los Angeles Lakers guard Shannon Brown (C) makes a pass in between the defending Boston Celtics guard Ray Allen (L) and Boston Celtics forward Glen Davis (R) during the second half of the Los Angeles Lakers 91-84 win over the Boston Celtics in Game Three of the NBA Finals at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, 08 June 2010. The Los Angeles Lakers lead the best of seven series 2-1.


In the games started Shannon averaged 15.3 ppg and 4.3 rpg, compared to 7.5 ppg and 2 rpg when off the bench. In the playoffs Brown played a key role in the Lakers’ wins and losses. In some games he would bring the Lakers energy and effort, while in other games he would be a non-factor. Brown averaged only 4.9 ppg and less than one assist. Similar to his teammates, Brown played poorly during the first five games of the Finals but then stepped up in Game 6 and 7. His acrobatic dunks and hustle plays helped the Lakers win the title.

Shannon Brown made most of his contributions when he was inserted into the starting five. However, Brown was very inconsistent during the playoffs, when it mattered the most. Shannon deserves a C for his play, and has to improve on his consistency on both ends of the court if he wants a better grade.
