Jaylen Brown has been one of the best players of the Boston Celtics in the NBA playoffs and one of the main reasons for the team’s championship run.
The superstar guard has brought the Celtics just two wins away from their first NBA title since 2010 and 18th overall. Speaking with the media on Thursday, Jaylen Brown revealed why this deep playoff run has been ‘so special’ for him.
“Where I was? I’m not even sure. Probably somewhere watching the playoffs at this time last year. And it hurt, to be honest. It hurt watching that Brooklyn series knowing I could be effective, knowing I could help my team win.
But, having to sit over there watching our guys fight and compete, watching J.T. out there fighting and competing, and I’m just on the sideline in street clothes.
Playoffs is my favorite time of the year. It’s what I love about basketball. It’s real basketball. Last year having to watch was hard for me, so that’s why this year this playoff run has been so special,” Jaylen Brown told media, including Hedgeout.net, on Thursday.
The Celtics lead the NBA Finals 2-1 and have the upper hand in the series. Game 4 is on Friday at TD Garden and Boston aims to take a clear advantage over Golden State.
