Brogdon calls Smart "the type of point guard you want for a team like this"

Well our two point guards seem to be getting along decently huh? There was some unwarranted worry amongst Celtics fansd and media when the team traded for Malcolm Brogdon, how that would effect Marcus Smart. But from Day 1, Brogdon has been a willing 6th man and showered Smart with compliments.

Don't take this as just Brogdon saying the right things. There are others ways to do that less strongly. By declaring Smart the "leader" and "point guard" of the team that's Brogdon giving Smart genuine love. Brogdon just seems like a guy who wants to win and doesn't care if he starts or not. He's fit in great with the team so far.
