Jaylen Brown continues to solidify his hold as my favorite current Celtic. He’s probably not the team’s best player, it with Mookie gone, he could be the guy the city just galls in love with.

Jaylen is awesome. Such a great character and the skills are catching up to his character as well. Rooting for guys like him is what makes sports fun for me.

Meanwhile, probably worth a separate thread but god forbid a guy like MJ step up and join in stuff like this. All we have are athletes who post some thoughts and prayers on twitter but don’t do much else. Guys like Jaylen who walk the walk are too few and far between.

Just imagine if you’d have guys with greater visibility and following like MJ leading the charge as well. LeBron, to his credit, seems to be more active on this front. But I really wish MJ would step up for once here. When he talks, people listen, as we just saw with that documentary. This goes the same for famous white athletes as well.
This was MJ's response.

Good to see MJ have a voice on this. I respect that he has not wanted to be a political person, but one does wonder if he’s reached the point where he needs to be clear where he stands. Much like Mark Zuckerberg, but that’s for a different forum....

Do any of the big box stores that are open currently carry Jaylen Brown jerseys? I am overdue for one.
I have high standards for the pro jerseys I wear. I've had a Russell, Bird, KG, and a Brady. I've got only one current Celtic, Jaylen Brown.

I'm so damn proud of Jaylen Brown. Is there anyone else in US team sports who has the sport cred and off the field Renaissance man cred of JB?

Bronson Arroyo? Marty Bennett? Serena Williams?

Justin Tucker is an opera singer and can sing in 7 languages. There's this guy.

Would make a fun thread all on its own.

Brown thoroughly out-played Siakam, particularly defending him. He also is starting to make more passing reads and be comfortable as a 1b ball-handler. The dude's ceiling is so freaking high.

He has also played with the highest consistent motor since the games started back up. He's all over the floor on both ends, even in the games when a lot of other guys were clearly not fully engaged.

He's still a work in progress in many ways, which is really encouraging to me. The mistakes are fewer, decisions are better, shot is better, confidence is up, and explosiveness is in full view of everyone. And there seems to still be a decent amount of upside. I'm stoked.
