“Being a celebrity, being an NBA player does not exclude me from any conversation. First and foremost I am a black man, I am a member of this release. We are raising awareness of some of the injustices that we have been seeing. Our voices have to be heard. I’m 23 years old, I don’t know all the answers, but I feel how others feel, “said Jaylen Brown.

A great season with the Celtics

But Jaylen Brown is much more than that. A different player who has become the great representative of the NBA in the protests that run through the United States after the death of George Floyd.
