Awesome Message from LeBron James for Boston Celtics’ Jaylen Brown After East Finals MVP Win

Jaylen Brown was recently named Eastern Conference Finals MVP after the Boston Celtics swept the Indiana Pacers. This prompted several players to congratulate the All-Star on his accomplishment, including Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James.

Last season, everyone criticized the Celtics for losing to the Miami Heat after the latter secured a playoff spot via the Play-In Tournament. This prompted Boston’s front office to revamp the roster, leading to the acquisition of veteran guard Jrue Holiday and big man Kristaps Porzingis.

The new Celtics team proved to be a beast as the team captured the best record in the league and the top seed in the Eastern Conference. It also set the stage for the NBA Finals as Boston eliminated the Heat, Cleveland Cavaliers and Indiana Pacers in succession.

For his part, Brown proved instrumental in Boston’s playoff run this year. Through 14 playoff games, the two-time All-Star forward posted 25.0 points, 6.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.1 steals per game. He also connected on 54 percent from the field, 36 percent from downtown and 63 percent from the free throw line.
