Jaylen Brown Angrily Calls out Celtics Fans After Game 7 Victory
The Boston Celtics are on the verge of completing what should be considered the greatest mid-season turnaround in NBA history.
Midway through January, the Celtics were below .500, and now they are about to compete in the NBA Championship against the Golden State Warriors.
With Ime Udoka’s elite defensive scheme and a great crop of talent, Boston has emerged out of the Eastern Conference after an intense battle with the Miami Heat.
Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart, and the entire Celtics roster will now get to compete in their first NBA Finals.
However, it wasn’t an easy road for Boston. In fact, it was a road full of doubters and critics.
After their Game 7 win in Miami, Brown caught up with Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports and discussed the negative dialogue that surrounded the team all year.
“That trade talk was loud, and most of it came from Boston fans,” Brown revealed to Haynes. “It’s a city that doesn’t tolerate excuses.
But in reality, early in the season we had a new coach, we had a new front office, I missed about 15 games early in the season and that caused us to not be clicking on all cylinders like we wanted to be.
People were impatient, so I understand. But fast forward, we got healthy, we got everybody back and now the sky’s the limit.”
