NBA Finals: Jaylen Brown’s evolution has paid off for the Celtics

Celtics majority owner Wyc Grousbeck wasn’t used to being booed. But just over eight years after Boston won its 17th title, he was at the TD Garden breaking news to an impatient and hungry fan base who didn’t approve of what he had to say.

“There was no trade,” Grousbeck said, standing in front of an acrylic lectern with “2016 Draft Party” written across the front in green and white letters. “This guy is our guy. He’s our man going forward.” Instead of speeding their way back to the title shot by dishing out the number 3 to an established star (some in the crowd tried to drown out Grousbeck by yelling Jimmy Butler’s name), the Celts bet Jaylen Browna 19-year-old Cal forward who probably wouldn’t make an immediate contribution.
