Donning a pair of legendary Celtics numbers in 33 and 34 — Brown and Tatum channeling Larry Bird and Pual Pierce, respectively — Boston’s budding stars traded fadeaways and turnarounds at the end of practice.
According to NBC Sports Boston’s Chris Forsberg, the two played some rotating 1-on-1 with Miami’s Bam Adebayo until Team USA coach Gregg Popovich intervened and pulled them off the court so they wouldn’t miss the departing buses.
