Jaylen Brown gets meme treatment after talking big before Game 2 blowout
It certainly didn’t take long for Jaylen Brown to get his slice of humble pie.
Prior to Friday’s Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and his Boston Celtics, the rookie forward made some remarks about how he wasn’t intimidated by LeBron James (see here).
Unfortunately for Brown, the Celtics went on to get thoroughly dismantled by James and the Cavs on Friday in a 130-86 nuclear annihilation, and an image of him sulking on the bench quickly got the meme treatment.

In fairness, Brown was Boston’s leading scorer on the evening with 19 points. But he finished with five personal fouls and looked largely overmatched on defense, once again proving that if you come at The King, you best not miss.
