Jaylen Brown: Celtics fans have no reason to boo

Jaylen Brown

Jaylen Brown is all for seeing the positive things in life and not focusing on the negative.

Boston Celtics fans were pumped for Wednesday night’s game against the Brooklyn Nets because it represented an opportunity for them to voice their frustrations about Kyrie Irving. In 2017, Irving demanded a trade away from Cleveland and wanted to go to Boston. He then told Boston prior to last season he would sign with them long term. But after a disastrous season, he instead left for Brooklyn in free agency, which fans were just as happy about after how badly the season went.

In light of the ups-and-downs with Irving, Celtics fans decided to break out a “Kyrie sucks” chant for Wednesday’s game, even if Irving was not with the Nets on the road trip due to a shoulder injury.

The Celtics won the game 121-110 and are now 7-0 at home this season. Because of the success of this year’s team, Brown does not think Celtics fans have any reason to boo or be upset.

Jayson Tatum similarly thought the chants were silly.

The chants don’t make much sense when you consider those ideas, but this is what makes fans who they are. They care about their teams. They’re passionate about rivalries. And if they feel like a player did not represent them well, they will have no problem booing them in the future. It’s important to have that, because these are the people who follow the sport and pay for tickets and merchandise.
