Jaylen Brown

Boston Celtics emerging star Jaylen Brown took part in the protests in Atlanta on Saturday.

Brown, who is from Marietta, Georgia, felt it was important for him to join his community and participate peacefully in a protest. He said he wanted to bring attention to injustices, like the death of George Floyd.

Brown said that being famous did not preclude him from joining and showing that he is feeling what others are feeling.

Here was his message on Instagram Live:

The 23-year-old is in his fourth season with the Celtics. He was having the best season of his career prior to the league’s season being suspended and was averaging 20.4 points per game, earning the big contract extension he signed last year.

Another athlete, an Ohio State basketball player, was actually detained while participating in Columbus protests.
