Jaylen Brown’s viral quote about playing for the Boston Celtics

Jaylen Brown is in his eighth season in the NBA (all with the Boston Celtics).

The three-time NBA All-Star has become one of the best forwards in the league.

Before Game 5 of the NBA Finals, Brown met with the media and talked about playing for Boston.

Brown: “It’s definitely a blessing to be here. To represent the Celtics, my family, organization, the community, the greater community, it’s an honor that I don’t take lightly. Just coming out every night, somewhere for playing, what I represent, I think that matters. My relationship with Boston has grown, I’ve been here for almost nine years. Since I was 18, 19 years old, I’ve grown up here. Boston is special looking forward to Game 5.”

The Celtics are in the NBA Finals for the second time in the previous three seasons.

They have also been to the Eastern Conference finals six times since Brown was drafted with the third pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

The Celtics have a 3-1 lead in the series, but are coming off a 122-84 loss to the Dallas Mavericks in Game 4.

Brown finished the loss with 10 points, one rebound and two assists while shooting 3/12 from the field and 1/5 from three-point range in 27 minutes of playing time.
