Donovan Mitchell, Jaylen Brown are ‘friends again’ after Celtics swingman poked fun at Jazz star
Boston Celtics small forward Jaylen Brown recently poked fun at Utah Jazz and NBA All-Star shooting guard Donovan Mitchell while talking about the bubble and how it’s mentally draining to see the same people over and over.
Everyone knew Brown was just taking a playful jab at Mitchell, but nevertheless, the two NBA stars “cleared the air” on social media.

It’s still crazy to think Walt Disney World is housing the best NBA players in the world. Six teams will be leaving the bubble soon once the playoffs start, but the content should still be good down in Orlando, Florida.
The NBA deserves so much credit for putting together the Orlando bubble. Not only have there been zero positive COVID-19 tests since the initial rounds of testing, but the games have been mostly fun despite the lack of fans.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and his team did a tremendous job when you take into consideration the MLB has had countless issues with its season.
For the Celtics, Brown is averaging 20.3 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 57 appearances. The talented swingman will have to play at an All-Star level in the playoffs for the Celtics to win the Eastern Conference.
Meanwhile, for the Jazz, Mitchell is putting up 24.2 points, 4.4 boards and 4.3 assists per game. He’s led Utah to the playoffs in each of his first three seasons in the NBA.
