Jaylen Brown reveals that he might have been a tad pesky while seeking advice from LeBron James and Stephen Curry on All-Star Sunday.
If you are a fan of the Boston Celtics, you undoubtedly know the value of Jaylen Brown. Despite being an underrated player in the NBA, he has taken his game to new heights this season. He has come a long way from being the raw prospect he once was, and could fast develop into the league’s next great superstar.
Due to his incredible performances for the Boston Celtics this season, Brown was selected as an All-Star this year. Here, he was selected by LeBron James in the All-Star draft and was a part of the team that eventually won by 20 points.
Despite the emphatic victory though, it seems Jaylen Brown’s best experience during the game may just have come from his teammates on the night.
“Probably being annoying but learning something”: Jaylen Brown
Jaylen Brown had a very good game on the night. In just 26 minutes, he recorded 22 points and 5 rebounds and added a steal to his tally as well. Speaking on the experience, later on, he had this to say:
“It was good… When I got hot there, Steph was the main person who was cheering me on. And I shot one from the logo and it didn’t go in, but Steph said that he liked it. So, I was like, ‘Man, I thought I was you for a second.’”

After saying Curry had a laugh about his comment, he continued:
“So being able to have back-and-forth dialogues with those guys…I was talking to LeBron while sitting on the bench, asking him questions. Probably being annoying but learning something. Trying to pick up some information, some knowledge.”
At 24-years-old, Jaylen Brown is still a young player in today’s NBA. Given how quickly he’s improving, he very well could become the best in the league one day. And who knows, maybe he and Jayson Tatum can finally end the championship drought for the Boston Celtics.
