Brown has been a "beast" for exactly three months out of his entire career. The last three games are indicative of his normal regular season efforts - sporadic success, and long periods of playing in a style that isn't in line with his skill set. He has been the least effective Kings player for three straight games.
I can name many players that are great all year long and disappear in the playoffs, which one would you prefer? I don't see how you could judge him the least effective, granted, he has been almost invisible, but so has the entire team not named Clifford, DD or Quick. We are three games into post SC winning season and we are sucking, how did you all feel about the team a few months ago? If you didn't see this coming I don't know what to tell you..
It depends, is your team good enough to get into the playoffs playing at half effort?
