Boston Celtics star Jaylen Brown couldn’t care less about not making it to the All-Star game alongside his teammate Jayson Tatum.
After leading the Celtics to a 116-83 blowout of the Orlando Magic on Sunday, Brown was asked about what many deem as an All-Star snub of him. The Boston swingman kept things classy, noting that it didn’t bother him at all and emphasized how blessed he already is with his current situation.
“I didn’t lose no sleep over it. I’m blessed, extremely. … No complaints, no lost sleep from me,” Brown shared, per Jay King of The Athletic.
It is clear Jaylen Brown is in a good place right now despite the snub, and for good reason. Individual accolades aside, the Celtics are clicking at just the right time and starting to climb the Eastern Conference standings.
Boston has now won five straight and has a 7-3 record in their last 10 games. They are currently eighth in the East with a 30-25 record, within striking distance of getting into the sixth seed for the automatic playoff qualification spot.
Despite missing the All-Star game, Brown certainly has a lot more to be thankful for.
For what it’s worth, however, Jayson Tatum recently indicated that he’ll do his best to get Brown alongside him into the All-Star game this February via replacement. With Kevin Durant set to be sidelined, the Celtics forward is hoping Adam Silver considers his teammate as a replacement choice.
It remains to be seen if that will happen given the number of other deserving players in the East, but one thing is clear: Brown won’t lose sleep over it as well.
