Basically, Avery Johnson just wants MarShon Brooks to be all that he can be.
After Saturday night's game, when he seemed hesitant at times, Johnson was clear about what he wants the prize rookie to do when he has the ball. "We want him to be able to make plays off the dribble. I don’t even mind if he takes a bad shot. I want him to be aggressive."
That's because the Nets need what Brooks brings. Brooks promises to be more aggressive Wednesday. ""I played (just) one game," he said. "But I feel like I can get my shot off against anybody."
