'Focus on yourself': Malcolm Brogdon's advice to his new teammates in the wake of the Ime Udoka scandal




 

If you ask Malcolm Brogdon what the Boston Celtics ought to do in the wake of the Ime Udoka scandal, it's for the players to look inward. And we know this because someone DID ask him - The Athletic's Jared Weiss.

"Honestly, you're not really taught this, but focus on yourself," advised the former Indiana Pacers guard. "Focus on being ready and your preparation every day." Tasked with being the team's leader in Indianapolis, Boston will need to lean on his leadership skills as well as what he has learned regarding fielding a competitive squad in the midst of unexpected head coaching changes.

"That's how I've gotten through all the coaches I've had and learning all the new techniques," suggested Brogdon.

"Keep an open mind, but make sure you're mentally prepared and physically prepared so your skills are sharp," offered the Celtics floor general. "It all starts with the work between the lines."
