2011 NBA Mock Draft: Boston Celtics Select Marshon Brooks
With the 25th pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, the Boston Celtics will select local guard Marshon Brooks out of Providence College.
Brooks is not widely considered a first round pick, but as draft time approaches, teams will begin to look closer at some of Brooks' better performances throughout the season.
Brooks set the Big East scoring record earlier in the season with 52 points against Notre Dame. He averaged nearly 25 points a game for the Friars and also got his fair share of rebounds with seven per game. He can slash, shoot and score in creative ways.
Brooks has picked up some bad habits at Providence as the predominant player on a bad team. The Celtics don't need a player that can play right away next season, but they need a guy with enormous scoring potential—and Brooks has that.
He might take a year or two with minimal playing time to adjust to playing with guys as good as himself, but with the right mix, Brooks could be a star.
