MarShon Brooks' Celtics experience began in earnest this week. After a summer spent isolated with a personal trainer in Cleveland Brooks arrived in the Boston area on Wednesday and with help from his mother Darlyn and sister Naya quickly found a new place to live ("Guys are easy" Darlyn joked noting the most important requirements are typically where to place the big-screen TV and xBox). Thursday morning featured his first Celtics workout since being acquired from the Brooklyn Nets in a summer blockbuster that ushered in a transition process. Before a community event at the team's training facility on Thursday afternoon Brooks gushed about what lies ahead for him here. "I'm just excited" said Brooks suggesting he's still as giddy as his brief July cameo when the team introduced him alongside Kris Humphries and Keith Bogans. The Providence College product believes there's a great opportunity back in New England trying to carve out a spot on the team that drafted him two summers ago. "I feel the same exact way [as at July's introductions] just excited for the opportunity to get out there and show my talents and compete for a position." Brooks planned to return to New York this weekend to pack up his belongings but said he'd be back here early next week and essentially begin preparations for the 2013-14 season by engaging in informal workouts at Boston's facility in advance of training camp in late September. "I’m one of the younger guys on the team I just want to be around" said Brooks. "Just to have a relationship with the players that are here and to know exactly what coach Brad Stevens wants." Brooks said Stevens has kept in touch with him throughout the offseason and monitored his workouts from afar. Boston's strength and conditioning staff welcomed the 24-year-old swingman with a workout that he described as "intense" on Thursday.
