Boston Celtics fans should put any aspirations for a title on hold. Everyone wants to fast forward to the moment in which Boston's wings are dominating the NBA as 25 year olds. As Lee Corso would say, "not so fast." Jaylen Brown needs to learn how to beat little kids in games of 1-on-1 before he can be trusted to lock up the likes of Kawhi Leonard and Victor Oladipo in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
Brown may have improved a ton from Year 1 to Year 2, but this camper made Brown look worse than Kyrie Irving when he talks about the earth being flat.
I wish I could knock Brown even more for this series of unfortunate events, but that pump fake was so tempting. It looked like it was sitting ripe on a platter for Brown to send it into oblivion and celebrate with all the campers.
Instead, a different celebration occurred. One that Brown was forced to watch in embarrassment.
That kid won't forget this moment for the rest of his life. He could quit playing organized sports right now and he'd always be able to fall back on the fact he beat a professional basketball player in 1-on-1.

Well, at least Brown has the right attitude. Maybe he'll be back at camp next summer to dunk all over this kid. Consider it a minor step back for a major comeback.
There's not much to take from this video from a basketball perspective, but I guess if Isaiah Thomas needs some tips on how to get buckets against Brown, he can watch film on this kid who looks to be about his size.
