Boston Celtics

One of Jaylen Brown’s former teachers once told him he’d end up in the slammer. Five years, later, Brown was slamming dunks against the likely NBA MVP.

The Celtics blew the Bucks off the floor in Game 1 on Sunday, obliterating the Eastern Conference’s top seed by a 112-90 score. Brown scored 19 points on 8-for-14 (57.1 percent) from the field in the game, none more memorable than his fourth-quarter dunk that sent Giannis Antetokounmpo stumbling backward.

Not many can say they truly posterized the Greek Freak in the playoffs like that. But Brown has photo evidence. You can see the instantly memorable photo above, via Satchel Price of the Chicago Sun-Times. He credits the photo to Morry Gash.

The best part for Brown, however, was that he also put his old high school teacher from Cobb County, Georgia on a poster. Brown tweeted five years before Sunday’s game, to the day, that his teacher told him he’d look him up in the Cobb County jail. Well the day finally arrived, and clearly the teacher was a bit off with the assessment.

After several requests, the popular Freezing Cold Takes Twitter account brought the tweet to its followers’ attention.

Apologize, teacher!
