‘Keep it going’: Bill Russell appreciates Jaylen Brown after his legendary performance
The third-pick of the 2016 NBA Draft has been a huge reason for Boston’s recent success. Brown has set a personal best with his fourth straight game with at least 25 points. This season is the best season for Brown, averaging 26.9 points (career-high), 3.7 assists (career-high), 1.4 steals (career-high) and 6 rebounds per game.
Following his performance, he received an appreciation from the 11-time champion, NBA legend Bill Russell. This must’ve been a great confidence booster for the 24-year old Brown.
