Boston Celtics star Jaylen Brown sat down with Sopan Deb of The New York Times about his experiences in Boston, leaving the window open for potentially leaving Boston to play for another city.
Here’s the interview with Brown:
Brown’s gone through a lot in his seven years with the Celtics. He was booed by fans on draft night and he’s been in trade rumors over the last five off-seasons.
Reading this interview, which took place on Sunday in Houston, made me think for the first time that Brown is unhappy in Boston and that his future here could be in jeopardy.
If Brown makes an All-NBA team, he’ll unlock himself to be supermax-eligible, to which the Celtics could offer him $290 million.
Off the court in Boston, Brown has opened a business, and continues to work endlessly to creat a bridge between lower income and disadvantaged communities to education. He has an MIT fellowship to do so.
Brown has a goal to change the world in the way he knows how. The Celtics and the city of Boston should look at Brown as an asset and want him to be here for his entire career. Not push him away.
