Walking specialist Jaylen Brown thinks he is being targeted by referees

Jaylen Brown is not the only player to rail on the increase in “walks” whistled in the NBA this season. Between October and November alone, referees whistled twice as many (1.7 per game in October to 3.4 in November), and the trend has continued since the beginning of December.

It must be said that the subject is thorny, especially in the NBA, where the “walkers” have been more or less tolerated for years with the main aim of favoring the attack (and the show). It’s a bit the same thing when a “carry ball” is whistled in the NBA, when they are, for the most part, ignored.

The question didn’t seem to bother the C’s winger unduly until Boston started losing four times in the last five games. The clumsiness, poor executions in attack and the loss of the ball were thus highlighted after the defeat against Orlando on Sunday, the second in a row.

“We need to increase our defensive level”he explained about the temporary difficulties in attack. “That’s what I did throughout the game. I insisted on putting pressure on them in defence. Sometimes it’s not going to work. It can happen to have shooting problems. There are other ways to influence the game. So I tried to increase the level of the defense, to push them to lose balls, to go in transition and to run. And that’s what we did. It’s just that it looks like I lost a lot of balls, while there were a lot of whistled “walks”.

Lost balloons that are expensive

Jaylen Brown pointed to another element, the “walkers”, which we keep whistling at her! For five games, he has indeed been reprimanded at least once per game for having taken one or two steps with too much ball in hand.

“It’s something I have to work on, I imagine”, he lamented after being caught by Patrol four times in the past two games for walking. “Referees choose when they emphasize it. Seems like every fuckin’ game, I’m the target person. But if you look around the league, you can identify a lot of players doing the same thing. So you can’t choose when you whistle things and other times not. But it’s something I’m going to work on. I will definitely be careful with my pivot foot because a lot of my ball losses tonight came from whistled markets.

Inevitably, the situation irritates him as he struggled to find address on Sunday (10/25), and he is the NBA’s most “wasteful” player in these last three games, with 16 balloons lost. Nevertheless, looking at this montage, Jaylen Brown cannot deny that he has a problem with his support and that the whistled steps are legitimate.
