Boston Celtics

Nobody! And I mean nobody! Can tell Boston Celtics rising-star forward Jaylen Brown that he can’t dunk. Not even his mom!

Brown’s mom might have given him some sound advice, but come on! He’s a beast when it comes to driving to the hole and throwing down a SLAM BAM. (see the evidence below)

Exhibit 1: Brown drives to the hole and slams one down from the baseline.

Exhibit 2: A steal by Brown leads to a fast-break high-flying dunk that even got Donnie Wahlberg fired up.

Exhibit 3: This one could be “admissible” due to being in the All-Star Game where there’s ZERO defense played, but who cares! This is one wicked sick dunk!

Exhibit 4: This one isn’t a dunk, but he sure can finish near the basket.

Exhibit 5: There haven’t been many Celtics in recent years who can hammer it down like Brown.

Brown will be making his return to the C’s starting lineup on Sunday night in the second of their four-game road trip against the Sacramento Kings, according to the Celtics.

Brown has been out since Thursday, March 8, when he suffered a concussion against the Minnesota Timberwolves following a scary fall from the rim after hammering home a slam dunk.
