Why Jaylen Brown changed his mind about opting out of Orlando
Jaylen Brown After initially reserving the game, the Celtics decided to prepare for Orlando to start over.
On Monday, during a conference call, Jaylen explained to reporters how he felt about restarting the game and deciding to join.
Jaylen said on a conference call with reporters on Monday: “For me, I can speak for myself better than anyone. I want to make it clear: I don’t want to go to Orlando.
“Like me, my worries are not only because of social justice, but also because of COVID, but also some family problems. But, once I think of the opportunities provided by the organization and the NBA to do bigger things than myself, I will sign up soon.
In the past few months, Brown has been very active in talking about racial inequality and has provided a voice for positive change.
After the killing of George Floyd, the Celtics defender drove from Boston for 15 hours to his hometown of Atlanta to participate in a peaceful protest.
The NBA is still preparing to resume the 2019-20 season at the Disneyland Resort in late July, although several players from the league have opted out of the game.
Brown averaged 20.4 points and 6.4 rebounds per game, the best career results this season.
The Celtics are currently ranked third in the Eastern Conference rankings, second only to the Toronto Raptors in three games.
Boston is scheduled to play against the Milwaukee Bucks on July 31.
