Jaylen Brown: “Everyone is dealing with something”

After the game, reporters asked Jaylen about his health and overall performance. The 2021 All-Star was both transparent and sarcastic on his second line of questioning.

How do you feel physically? Locked down to the Celtics podcast host, Jean Karalis request.

” I arrive there. This is my third game in four days; my body is coming back to where it was before the season ”, Brown responded after Monday’s loss. “It would be a lot better with a win today. But the most important thing is to stay the course, to try to put this team on the right track, to try to win games and to try to play good basketball that I know we can do. Today we have failed. But, we had another opportunity, I guess, on Wednesday in the midst of everything that is happening on and off the pitch.

“Everyone is dealing with something. We have to be able to adjust and always gain the upper hand. It’s a game we really wish we could find again. “

Karalis’ follow-up question was about Jaylen getting stuck on the edge more often than usual and whether or not that was a testament to Brown still recovering strength or if it was just something that did the defense proud. from Philly.

“I don’t know how to answer this question” Brown answered. And after a long silence before the press conference continued.

John Karalis on Jaylen Brown: “Something Is Wrong”

Karalis, who recorded his last episode of the Locked on the Celtics podcast immediately following Monday’s loss, took a moment to respond to Brown’s inability to answer John’s question.

“What does that mean? Don’t you mean I don’t have the burst I did? Are you late in that?” Karalis asked in his last episode of Locked on Celtics. “He came out and looked good, at first, and now it’s like I don’t know. But, three games in four nights? Maybe it’s just hard for him to come back and do that. I don’t want to put too much pressure on a guy coming back from injury. But, it’s very clear that something is quite wrong there. “

It’s also clear that Brown, as one of the Celtics’ many leaders, no longer wants to show vulnerability, especially in these tough times when Boston is understaffed and once again below 0.500. However, Jaylen’s score has undoubtedly been on the rise of late as the 25-year-old recovers from a hamstring injury that forced him to miss nearly two weeks.

Since then, Brown has averaged 23 points while shooting to a 43.8% clip with 5.5 rebounds, four assists and 1.7 steals in his previous four outings, per ESPN.com.
