Lakers superstar LeBron James may call himself “king,” but Celtics swingman Jaylen Brown really didn’t seem to care during Monday’s game at TD Garden.
Brown plays with a ton of grit and determination — traits that the Celtics front office has long admired. He embodies what it means to be to be a member of the Celtics.
He showed that during Monday’s game, when he drove right at James — who was tasked with protecting the rim — on one particular play. Brown elevated and threw down a massive slam over James, then hung on the rim and stares his counterpart down afterward.
The staredown earned him a technical foul, but he was probably OK with it.
