Brown’s current advantage over Tatum is his individual defense. Opponents guarded by Brown shoot a lower percentage at every distance on the floor compared to those guarded by Tatum. Much of this is due to Brown’s overwhelming physical ability; taking his self-reported height and weight of 6′8″, 235 lbs, he is one of the largest shooting guards in the league. His size advantage at the SG position could almost be compared to Lebron James’ (6′8″, ~260lbs) corresponding advantage at the SF position. This gives him a great ability to deny positioning to his opponents, to fight through screens and fight for the ball, and to contest shots even when he gets beat. Brown also has extremely quick hands and feet, making him much more suited to guard ball-handlers.
