Jaylen Brown has no “time to give a f***” about All-NBA snub

Boston Celtics All-Star Jaylen Brown says he’s taking the 2024 playoffs “one game at a time.”

Jaylen Brown is on absolute fire this postseason. The 27-year old Celtics All-Star just dropped 40 on the Indiana Pacers, who trail Boston two games to none in the Eastern Conference Finals. It’s obvious that he’s playing to win it all. It should come as no surprise that he doesn’t care about not being selected for an All-NBA team this year. That’s what he wants us to think, at least.

Following his explosive performance during Thursday night’s game in Boston (a 126-110 win), Jaylen Brown told a reporter he didn’t “have time to give a f***” about not making any All-NBA teams. He also displayed some humility. He told the room “It’s a blessing to step out on the floor each and every night. I don’t take that for granted.”

Brown admitted he does feel a little cheated, though. Further along in the interview, he told a reporter that he feels like he has more talent than some of the guys who got the nod instead of him. He highlighted his commitment to playing both sides of the ball, chiming “When it comes to that, there’s not a lot of people better in this league.” He feels that there’s players who get attention that are “half as talented” as him.

Perhaps Jaylen Brown’s attitude is related to his previous All-NBA acknowledgment. Brown was selected for the All-NBA second team in the 2022-2023 season. In terms of his non selection, it’s relevant to consider that he either saw decreases or no significant improvements in basically all major categories. Most notably, he saw a 3-point decrease in regular season points per game (26.6 last year, 23 this year). This did not stop him from repeating as an All-Star this year, however. As a result of his All-NBA selection last season, he signed a five-year, $304 million super-max extension with the Celtics. If I were Brown, I’d be content both ways. He already got his bag. But if I got the chance to point out that I was dropping 40 in playoff wins while All-NBA players watched from their couches, I’d take it every time.
