Jaylen Brown Had the Strongest Reaction to His All-NBA Snub

Jaylen Brown

Jaylen Brown issued a bold response to missing out on making the All-NBA team this season.

Speaking to the media after scoring 40 points in the Boston Celtics' victory over the Indiana Pacers on Thursday, Brown made it clear that the team's success is his priority.

“We're two games from the finals, so I don't have time to give an af*ck,” he said.

Brown made the All-NBA Second Team last season but the numbers are down a bit this year. He averaged 26.6 points per game last season and 23 this season, although he has played less this year and shot the ball much better.

During his availability to the media on Thursday, Brown was again asked if he felt inferior after being left off the All-NBA teams.

“I see guys being praised and anointed who I feel are as talented as me on both sides of the ball,” he said. “But at this point in my life, I just accept it. It comes down to being who I am and what I stand for, and I'm not changing that.”

Brown was exceptional for the Celtics in Game 2, finishing with 40 points and five rebounds on 52 percent shooting from the field.

He had 24 points at halftime and carried his team with star Jayson Tatum off to a slow start.

Boston now appears set for a Finals appearance with a 2-0 series lead and Pacers star Tyrese Haliburton dealing with hamstring soreness.
