Before appearing on The Howard Stern Show for the first time, comedian and podcaster Marc Maron came to a profound realization that immediately calmed down his nerves and anxiety about going on his idol’s show. Watching Stern eat cantaloupe during a break, Maron realized that the famous radio personality was not a mythic creature. He was just a guy. A guy eating cantaloupe. Ingraining this into his mind, Maron was able to go on the show and be himself.
Perhaps this type of strategy is exactly what Celtics rookie Jaylen Brown is utilizing before Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals. At least based on his comments about LeBron James, that appears to be the case.
Talking with CSN-New England, Brown said that he wasn’t afraid to go up against and guard James. Brown even said that James was just “another guy.”
