The Boston Celtics have been underperforming despite the presence of Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum. The blame game has started and now some are speculating that Boston may end up breaking their dynamic duo.

As of this writing, the Cs are 13-14 in the win-loss record. While it is still too early, worth considering is that Brown has missed games in the early part of the 2021-22 season.

Brown and Tatum are known to have a good relationship but somehow their chemistry is not working. There are suggestions that Boston may consider breaking up the duo with Brown singled out as the one who may be let go, Jake Fischer quipped.

Compared to previous years, the Celtics are far from impressive. But injuries and the lack of support may also be a problem that head coach Ime Udoka may be dealing with.

Even when Brad Stevens was still at the helm, it was obvious that the Celtics needed to get both Brown and Tatum's help. Marcus Smart is there, same with the returning veteran Al Horford.

Although they added guys like Dennis Schroder, it remains that the Celtics still lack something that can aid Brown and Tatum. Breaking up the tandem could benefit both so that they can blossom into the stars they should be.

However, the Celtics may end up as big losers – unless they can get some good talent in exchange. Brown has been the subject of trade scenarios but nothing has gone down so far.

A Jaylen Brown trade may happen but not immediately. Fischer forecasts it could happen in the next 12 to 18 months.

Hence, for now, the best Udoka can do is figure out what is lacking in the Celtics rotation. The NBA trade deadline is approaching and they may want to check out the available talent.

If not, the free-agent market is a good source of needed talent. That is unless buyouts follow involving big talent that can be of help to the Celtics’ struggles.
